Cyclobe’s “The Visitors”: Music review

2001’s “The Visitors” from experimental soundscape noise artists Cyclobe (two former members of Coil) is an alien visitation, a cowled figure, a face straining against cellophane in a silent scream, your lungs filling with water, like walking through a desert, through a graveyard, through a winter garden of skeletal trees and headless statues that turn and follow you as you pass, it is an orchestra of alien instruments playing themselves in a ruined Detroit theatre with autumn leaves filtering down through the shattered skylight, it is a frigid dawn sun on an empty beach. At the juncture of dissonance and melody, at the Doors of Perception, at the Mountains of Madness, at the Gates of the Other.
It’s quite fucking weird. But I like it. You might like it, too.
