The legends of psytrance return in the end of 2015 with a new album. In accordance to the album's title, this album has elements of almost everything they have released so far.So expect to listen almost everything : goa'ish,techy,psychedelic,dissonant,experimental,noisy,dark.Of course do not expect to find overpolished productions of tin psytrance that lack substance.One couldn't tell that the albums is released in 2015 just by listening to it, and that's a good thing.In comparison with their previous releases I would say this album mostly resembles Demonoizer combined with Schlabbaduerst Rekkords compilations 1,3 and 7,and maybe some of the more spacey/cyber/tech psytrance tracks of Urban Legends,their most recent album.This album also has a storytelling concept for you there to interpret.For me it's a trip from the dungeons to outer space. Track by track description follows:

01 "Its Only Disko"
The intro track is groovy,hypnotic and disonnant, the kind of music that warms up the party before the heavy stompers.

02 "I Don't Know"
This track is dark and spooky, progressing from the initial groovy hypnotic disonance of "Its Only Disko" to some evil,devilish post-industrial psytrance of Schlabb 3 and/or 7.Things start to get real harsh.

03 "Lacking it All - into the Valley of the Shadow of Death"
Entrancing noises and raw psychedelic effects combined with some groovy, dancey kick and snares make this track the most danceable so far in the album. The (dark) goa'ish anthems that follow later transform this track into a unique blend of trippy sounds,dark atmospheres and dancing beats.

04 "Time"
This is one of the most 'minimal' track so far, continuing in the noisy atmospheric darkness concept of the album although a tad less overloaded."Time" acts as a bridge in this story, starting the transition from the dungeons to the spacey cybertechy landscapes.Of course, do not even think that the darkness will completely go away, it just becomes a bit toned down.

05 "True Hope"
Things start to become more digital and techy. Pinches of hope appear in the background, the effects become slightly less harsh and the atmospheres more extraterrestrial.Are we getting out of the dungeon?

06 "The Cupboard"
Spacey tech trance, laser sounds and battle of the future buddhas trademark anthems.Preparing to take off.

07 "Consciousness"
The cyber/techy atmosphere is still there, but now there are some more distinct goa elements leading the track.There is something from "Twin Sharkfins" here. We are no longer under or on the ground. Some light can be seen.

08 "Faith"
We are still in goa realms.In good faith, everything starts to slowly calm and clear down back to normal.

09 "The Infinite Process"
The outro track is a bit more downtempo,but even more goa'ish, most likely the most characteristic goa sounds in the whole album.An oldschool ending of an intense story.
