Cloning Experiment Failure
3 x 3"CD-R (ltd. 43)
This release contains two first demos of a duet coming from Pskov, Russia, plus the recording of the last rehearsal session made two weeks before the death of one of the band's members. The first demo was recorded in 1999-2000 and shows band's infatuation for the products of British label Digital Hardcore Recordings: superdrive combination of fast breakbeats, clear-cut guitar riffs and agressive vocals. The nearest reference point of C.E.F.'s sound of that period may be the music of Atari Teenage Riot raised to the second power.
The second demo (2000-2001) demonstrates evolution of the band in their own direction: composition structures have become more ragged, rhythms have twisted, a fair amount of noise has been added and music have become more chaotic on the whole. One insane interpretation of the song "Sane" by gothic doom metal band Paradise Lost is worth listening!
The third disk contains home recording of band's last rehearsal held on September 5, 2003. Here C.E.F. reached the top of brutal noise sound within the limits of guitar music, all compositions are performed in immensely harsh and dynamic way. There are mostly pieces from previous demos but also three new tracks that have never been recorded in studio. Small blocks of songs are divided by sharp short noise interludes. Turn up the volume and say goodbye to your sanity!
The release is packed in plastic box with a booklet, each disk lies inside a sleeve made of emery paper.
