"While Coil have since become one of the more legendary names in industrial music, it was early genre progenitors Vortex Campaign who invited them and The New Blockaders to collaborate on a limited-edition release in 1984 (then known as “Dolbied and at first only distributed via cassette), showcasing all three bands’ soon-to-be signature influential styles." (AllMusic)

"In its earliest form, this deeply sinister piece of work was unleashed upon the world in 1984, when Belgian group Vortex Campaign hooked up with two of extreme underground music's greatest and most influential acts, The New Blockaders and Coil. The resultant material was originally released in an edition of 50 cassettes, but now, thanks to Important Records, the release is available all over again ... this album captures some of the nascent ideas that gave rise to the school of noise music currently attended by the likes of Wolf Eyes, John Wiese and Prurient - and frankly, even by today's standards it's probably still every bit as potent."
