Hadn't heard this album before spotting it so high on the 2008 chart - such a great discovery.

NIN meets Joy Division meets Swans. The result is one of the most intimate, angry, sad, and beautiful records I've ever heard. The only track I tend to skip is Who Would Leave Their Son Out In The Sun. The Big Gloom, There is No Food, HFS 40k, and I Don't Love are probably in my top 100 songs of all time. Earthmover is in the top 10.

Mother of God, Earthmover. No other song embodies how much I desperately want to die sometimes more than this song. It's exhausting to listen to.

From JulianR
I found nothing particularly interesting about this album. There are some fairly unique noises created, but they just kinda happen for a couple minutes and then stop. The vocals provide fairly little discernible lyrical content and don't add much to the atmosphere of the album. Also the drums are too prominent throughout, though it worked on some songs.

The closer alone would be enough to make this album one of my all time favorites, but the journey there is one of the most beautiful, terrifying, incredible experiences I have ever had the pleasure of undergoing.

After many positive reviews that I've read about Deathconsciousness , I had great expectations for this album... It turns out that this album is good but not extraordinary. Well, there are some strong emotional ambient songs like Bloodhail, Hunter but other tracks are weak and not significant in the concept of the whole album.

Moral of the story, I should not read reviews before listening to an album...

Favorite tracks: I Don't Love, Bloodhail, Earthmover
Less favorite tracks: Telefony, Waiting For Black Metal Records To Come In The Mail

A fascinating, murky mixture of shoegaze & post-punk with loud, primal drum machines, ghostly vocals that can barely be understood most of the time & a strong sense of a depressing, despair-filled mood. A grower, for sure.

From HoldenM
This is a damn fine record. At 85 minutes, this is quite streamlined and brilliant. The atmosphere is rich and moody, the songwriting is gorgeous and smart, and the overall record is consistently excellent. Great record.

This is a really great concept, and it builds a really unique atmosphere. It sounds like nothing I've ever heard, and only after a couple listens was I able to finally decide to call it post punk. However, as great as the atmosphere it creates is, I think it kind of falls flat near the middle. The first three songs are great, and then after that it kind of just muddles around in the same sound until Waiting for Black Metal Records... The track after that is great though, and it does manage to pick up again by the end (although it never reaches the height of Bloodhail and The Big Gloom again). Definitely an album I'll come back to, but I'm not ready to call it a masterpiece just yet.

Too much for me. "Bloodhail" is intense
