Serial Killer antics, illustrated by one Mat Brinkman (SYNB) and one Jochen Hartmann (HSDOM). Blackened washes of esoteric murk. Letterpressed and Razor Scored Jacket, Pro-Duplicated CDr. Edition of 225.

"Next, all you fans of Anal should please check out Phaserprone Records' wonderful split CD by SYNB and HSDOM, the former being one of the many obscure projects by Rhode Island's Matt Brinkman, the latter being a solo project of Brooklyn-based musician Jochen Hartmann. Herein, both artists have re-worked the other's music to create a totally coherent mash of weather formations-meets- heavy industry. Enormous cranes teeter in the wind, massive radio antennae fizz in the rain, and girders crash unnoticed from massively high gantries, the overall experience being somewhat like taking mushrooms and shivering at the great North Walean Neolithic temple of Tal-y-Fan just at the spot where the National Electricity grid cuts right across the valley (though without the threat of death that such an act would entail). Better still, and like all of Phaserprone's exquisitely packaged releases, SYNB/HSDOM arrives in what their press dept calls 'a self-assembled, razor-scored, letter-pressed silver on black, blind embossed, gatefold with insert'. Cop this sucker from www.phaserprone.com, but do make sure you check out their entire catalogue while yooz at it." — Julian Cope, Head Heritage
