Consisting of some new and some previously released material, Session 9 is a horror movie soundtrack by the Climax Golden Twins. The work here shows the group doing what it does best: low scrapes and drones, electronic howls and clatters, and a genuinely creepy yet enthralling atmosphere. Though it would be tempting to compare the sound with more modern experimental ambient artists like Lustmord or Coil, it's probably more appropriate to look in a more classic electro-acoustic vein, an association only bolstered by the fact that the soundtrack is tied down by Vladimir Ussachevsky's classic work, Piece for Tape Recorder, which doesn't seem particularly out of place here.
