The first two words, "Hell" and "Pele's Tears," offer an aural vision of what it might be like to be detached, to be out of the range of touch, sight, smell - anything but sound. They are eerie yet fascinating, they move and drift and take ominous shapes but never advance further than the imagination stage, because they aren't connected to anything, which makes them sonic monoliths with seemingly endless depths. Think Paul Schutze at his most abstract and you get an idea.
