Prediction, the breakdown, protest to survive. Make a wish on a falling star, you can see it from the East or the West. A diamond bullet. The time of instinct is upon us, in the dark recesses, translucent spectres gather as drifting communities, the ID and the wreck of the ego.
" Their dark, malevolent malaise has developed on its own terms. The very fact that eight more songs have sprung forth from the cauldron suggests that VFT aren't messing about. In other words, the longer they go on playing this scary music, the more convincing it becomes."
"All the songs have a hard hitting drum battery, choppy guitars, some very clever keyboards, all overlaid with a voice that snarls, sneers and threatens. The press talk about Pil and Bauhaus but VFT have an identity of their own. From swelling keyboards to that mock Arabic wail."
