"Damn Swedes, Shitkatapult gets frosty! 'Replik' is the fitting title this 29 year-old Goeteborger, Anders Ilar, has chosen for his clear gletscher-like winter-techno 12'. Trimmin' up where Edward Scissorhands cut off, Anders seems to be slicing three laissez-faire ice sculptures from Shitkatapult's frigid repertoire. For 'Replik', he finally grabs the ice-pick and carves the name Shitkatapult in big letters up on the shimmering green, iced ceiling of the Skagerak. He does this just in case T.Raumschmiere comes flying through on a wild goose looking for a landing place. The techno bat strikes into the suffocating and echoing surface without sense or hesitation. Fine rips split sound tracks into the depth and hit rock bottom. It's true, northern lights, as them Swedes know, make insomnia a regular occurrence so that depression is met again. Complete pragmatism comes from Sweden and has unveiled itself as a real exported craze in the shape of Abba, furniture, and pornos. The principle is that ideas must work."
