To all the readers. I had a busy week and didn't get the chance to post this until now. So here is the June Issue and I'll post the July issue as well. Enjoy..
Peter Sotos the man who some call the modern day Marquis De Sade is a writer and musician. He is best known for his work in the band Whitehouse and was formerly a writer for the Pure magazine. This is the 1992 first album released under his own name and this is everything that vile nightmares are made of. Compiling a collage of samples from parents, law enforcement, and victims of sex crimes there is nothing musical about this album at all. This is more like an audio book per say and I think adding some type of noise or sounds under the samples would have given it some more dynamic i.e. Nicole 12. What it doesn't provide in sound it does provide in mentally scaring the listener. I've read, watched and listened to a lot of extreme things, but this one definitely trumps over all of it, maybe with the exception of "The Serbian Film". From what I've read on Sotos himself his writings were a way for him to put himself in the shoes of serial killers and sexual predators more like a sick twisted fantasy. Sotos himself has a history of weird sexual fantasies and was convinced of possessing child pornography back in 1986. In one way I like how he points out the media's exploitation concerning victims of sexual abuse. As they basically are looking for a story and not concerned with the victims well being as well as exposing people who used the scenarios of sexual abuse to their advantage when they aren't actually victims. This just adds more emphasis to things that were and have been going on for far to long and need to stop. So while some might see this as sick, twisted, and perverse(I honestly can't blame them.) I think the truth behind it is something that shouldn't be ignored. Now this release is definitely not for everyone and if you don't have a strong constitution I recommend not listening to it. I personally was almost in tears especially on the clip of a girl crying "Mommy Mommy I want my Mommy". I listened and wrote this review after recently discovering Sotos, but I'm honestly not sure if I'll ever listen to this again.
