A counterpart of the more calm ambient releases by Leykam/Mark. "... apocalyptic appearing sound collages, end time inspired, cutting-sawing direful guitar improvisations, complex bizarre archaic soundscapes, which mostly proclaim brute destructive elemental force."

... it's not musical fastfood what we get with extreme colours. Leykam/Mark don't make it easy for themselves and their listeners with their collages of synthetic sounds, mutations of e-guitar, piano, voices and various noise tapes. (EXPULS 4/96)

... the elongated ethereal guitar excursions melt into dense waves of synthetics creating a surreal blend of tone colours and spatial textures that hint at Michael Brook perhaps, but has a much more experimental ambience. Rooted in Fripp and Eno this german duo plays with more fire. (EUROCK 8/96)

... hurts, bewitches, dazes the senses. This album is harder, more unpredictable and even more bizarre. (AMÖBENKLANG 7/99)
