Originally released as their first tape in 1986, this collection of timeless magical rituals has been recompiled and engraved on this excellent ritualistic 12" picture disc. Two very unique mythical stories are implied; one side represents the male deity, the other - the female deity. Through this first experience into the unknown realms of hybryds we encounter a mysterious contrast of peaceful and disturbing dreamscapes that flow nicely throughout in its entirety.

We enter this realm with the primitive and peaceful atmospheric sounds of nature on "the awakening." The next song, "stampede", leads us into the repetitious forces of percussion in nature while female vocals enchants your ears. "Maneater" disturbs the mind with menagerie of wailing and utters of cattle, crickets and other creatures of nature. "666 is sucking cock in heaven" sinks us into distant dark visions and soundscapes that lead you through the next three unsettling rituals that devour your presence with weird illusions of the unknown. "Na he ma" ends the male side with a hypnotic, yet haunting and disturbingly layered chants of the ancient ones.

The female side opens with more layered trance-like chants of the old ones building and falling in structure with contrasting in enlightening and unsettling nature. "Hypno" carries on the rhythmic structures of its male counterpart on side one with recycled intensity. "Mindswamp" drifts us into cold and dense atmospheric chambers of the ritualistic death utilizing subtle synthetic percussive arrangements that are induced with various growls, drones, and phases. "The willing victim" shows us a frightening perspective on a possible mythical event that intensifies us with nightmarish soundscapes and disturbing samples. "The final answer" concludes this journey into the pathways of the ancient ones with more unsettling and haunting sound collages for your mind, leaving you seeking more of what is lost in time.
