sbfh have the first four tracks which consist mainly of low pulsating drones with the addition of other higher drones or sounds. "unknown radiation" has an interesting glitch which sounds like a insane geiger counter. "repulsion" has a higher resonance which brings light relief from the deep drone that you can feel through your bones. these four tracks are stark without feeling empty. there are some interesting textures and sound patterns - there's nothing to hum along to just let the drones wash over you.
alien love have the final three tracks and are a bit more free flowing and they don't crowd into your head in the same way. AL floats around the inside of your head. "cold and dead world" is a 9 minute exploration of a vast empty landscape and leaves you feeling a bit desolate and alone. AL songs seem to end quite abruptly and i didn't like that aspect - the songs could of continued for another minute or so or faded out but other than that you can, and should, just let these drones wash over you. or haunt you as is the case with the slightly disturbing but good "the mutilation alien".
i like this split as a whole and no preference of either band - they both have different approaches and have made sounds that i like. not everyone understands the sweeping depths you can get from drone but i do, and i like this release. i can't wait to hear more from either band.
