Comment: in other words, “stunted” does mean inferior inferior in size and quality. However, it is quite puzzling to imagine temporal moments to be somehow inferior in size. In fact, I guess it does not mean nothing at all. On the other hand, temporal spans could be inferior in quality it is thoroughly viable. I guess one of the artist`s purposes was to have possibility to step back on the occasion. On the other side, maybe the artist`s goal was inclined to have a spot on sounds of lower quality and therefore the title could reflect inferior impulses upon your precise listening times. In fact, it is a span of quality time as it used to be with many industrial issues before it. Just everyone is aware of the fact the embodiment of industrial music embraces topics being provoking, irritating, and even disgusting to a “normal”, average human being. Its cultural heritage is a collection of murky and desolate shards being mixed up into something ennobling even if it might be horrendous, cheerless, morbid and perverted. By listening to this set of compositions it is rounded out by ill-omened orchestrations and sombre droning, morbid drumming being either based on lone gongs or programmed smouldering rhythms, outright desperate vocals and cut-up sonification, challenging electro-acoustic meddling and zombie-alike shit in general. At times one could perceive an interface to be set up between blackened ambient, Teutonic Klingklang approach and sultry rhythmic alchemy. Do not afraid of it while being the subject to such approaches and sounds because it is especially intriguing to listen to it after a day’s hard work. Furthermore, if you are looking at such composition as Slumber Machinery your soul is going to bleed presumably because of being touched so poignantly and painfully. Of course, the situation is getting worse if it evokes adverse flashbacks from your memory. Undoubtedly it does have potential to do it. In a word, the result is outstanding both by scratching one`s strings in deep of his/her soul because of being outstanding by the formal and substantial side. The outing is a bit in the discography of excellent French imprint Abyssa (its active years had passed during the 00s).
