"Steeve Bouchard with 12 new tracks from WORLD DOWNFALL / this album is a nightmare of power-electronics / last track is a collaboration with BARRIKAD." [label info]

"...Have you ever listened to a harsh noise PE album that actually manages to make you feel slightly light-headed? Well, this latest effort from Steeve Bouchards (Bleak Existence) World Downfall project achieved just that very thing with me. After listening, on headphones, to the sound of rasping industrial machines drilling into my pleasure centres and boring them out for something close to an hour, I almost felt like I was just about to burst through to a higher form of consciousness either that or my brains were attempting to dribble out of my ears. All flippancy aside, this is a harsh, unforgiving album, simple in execution but devastating in effect. Utilising a very Whitehouse-esque line of attack, with most of the tracks consisting of a buzzing, rasping backing of grating electronics, augmented here and there with industrial strength machine noises and topped off with distorted vocals, both spoken and shouted, its in essence a very direct aural assault. Its unrelenting and not for the faint-hearted; and in some respects requires a feat of endurance on the part of the listener, as after a while the sameness of a lot of the tracks can become something of a monotone blur. Occasionally even I found myself losing the thread somewhat...." [S:M:J63 / Heathen Harvest]
