AllMusic Review by

Peter Frohmader's second LP is quite different from Musik Aus Dem Schattenreich. Only sometimes there is a track that could have been on the first LP like "Innereinen," which is a weird grave chant consisting only of voice sounds. The other tracks are strange and threatening too, but the electronics stand in the background. It is mainly an experimental bass album, where the eight-string bass guitar is treated with various playing styles. There are glissandi, slapping, pizzicato, and suddenly wild and fast distorted riffs. Added are noises and percussion, gongs and strange guitars. One further element that turns up in Peter Frohmader's early music is that there is no fixed meter often.
