Dark. An unpleasant conceptual journey through WWII era Germany, Following Orders creates a mood like virtually no other noise release I've come across. From the slow moving torturous frustration of the opening "A Man Torn In Two" the listener is on edge, and MISCHLINGE spend the next 40 minutes taking us through a world of deception, fear and unspeakable betrayals. Their industrial landscape is suitably bleak, ranging from the whitewashed "Commitment" to creeping tension with tracks like "Eagle's Nest" and "Partial Involvement." Released by Expectorant a couple of years back and long out of print, this is best heard in one sitting at maximum volume. Nothing short of incredible.
