After a 10-year break, the unique, incredible Contrastate have resumed activities and Dirter is immensely proud and excited to be able to announce this full-length CD of brand-new material. This follows a number of reissues and releases of live and unreleased material that just about quenched their loyal following's thirst. It seems like Contrastate never really went away and they, along with other experimental acts from the '80s and '90s, have gone through something of a critical re-assessment of late. When Contrastate ceased activities, nothing like them really came to take their place. Willfully obscure with just a handful of memorable live shows to their name, Contrastate's music has come to be understood on its own terms. Simply, if you are familiar with them, you need to know no more; if you're not, you've been missing out, and this is as good a place as any to start. Contrastate's sound insinuates itself somewhere inside the dark ritual ambiance of the electronic avant-garde shot through with a vein of experimental noise and vocals strewn amongst industrial surrealism. The first 500 copies of this CD are packaged in an incredible long pack format, complete with eight-page color booklet.
