Fierce and militant rhythms drive this industrial outfit's title track, pulsations that will leave you dizzy and disoriented (if you listen loud enough - which you obviously should). Then "Play Of Flight" serves as a six minute refuge, as innocent as it is ominous. But the final 13 minutes of "Not For Glory" is the swan song for Slavestate, a grueling 7 minutes of ambiance give way to encroaching vocals manipulations and sparse sonic eruptions. BIRTHRIGHT is nothing if not patient....and I certainly hope this is not the last we hear from them. I am patient.
