WRAPPED IN THE GUISE OF MY FRIEND
GOTHIC BEAUTY MAGAZINE

“With over two decades of albums under it’s belt, the UK band has truly impacted many. This album is a collection of Attrition covers, collected and re-mastered by Martin Bowes of Attrition. Considered the grandparents of dark experimental electronic music, they are the reason why many bands like them exist today. Fans of Nine Inch Nails or avant-garde cinema and art owe it to themselves to check out Attrition if they are unfamiliar. The covers on this album offer a fresh outlook on the band’s music. Contributors are listed for each song including their websites. The covers truly create an aural setting of gloomy delight, with bold orchestral arrangements, choral harmonics, and the twisted path of industrial samplings. The ambiance of instrumentation is often contrasted by deep vocalizations, eerie operatic bellows or dramatic synth effects. It is remarkable that an album emulating this influential band stands alone as it’s own work of art. “
