Joel Bisson I love the hauntingly beautiful voice of the singer. I've found Attrition when they followed me on Soundcloud, I've heard of but never heard until 2012. I love the whole dark atmosphere to the music this band has. I love the fact that there's so many songs to hear still because I'm a rather new fan ;) Favorite track: Silent Night.
Uncle Brains

Uncle Brains Attrition's prolific and courageous 35-year path through the realms of dark electronic music (both the dance-oriented and the ambient currents) is perfectly documented in this anthology. Driving beats, string samples, intense vocals (both the growling male, and the opera-like female), merge into surgically crafted songs and atmospheres. Favorite track: What Shall I Sing?.

Track Name: Dreamsleep (2014 Remaster)
I have seen my dream
that they call hallucination,
I have glimpsed my hopes
far beyond the horizon.
Now it shares my thoughts
and breathes my air in,
As it stops me running
from a misty vision.

It takes over and engulfs all
I become this formless entity.

I have climbed the peak
to seek new sensation,
Can't retrace my steps,
trapped in my own creation.
Travelled in time,
can't think how I used to,
Less confused than then
yet more questions to answer.

In day dreams
In dark dreams
In dreamsleep.
Track Name: Two Gods (first take)
I'll take you by the hand and make you one
And leave you by the river when I'm done
And walk across the water to the sun...

Two Gods...
Bet on two Gods

I'm naked and I'm hungry in my room
I'm tearing arms from deities for fun
This hell is like a holiday, with guns...

Two Gods
Bet on two Gods

I'll bring a little magic to your room
And pass to the assassin who has none
He's taking out the tyrant, for his son

Two Gods
Bet on two Gods

Two Gods
Are better than one...
Track Name: Cosmetic Citizen (Stromkern Remix)
Three blind beggars, how they run
Picking up girls and books and guns
Three blind, three blind
Six (sick) citizens, how they click
Burning our words with stones and sticks
Six sick, six sick

Genetic, hosetic, generic, innocents
Genetic, kinetic, cosmetic, citizen

Five live devils, ooh, they`re slick
Picking up dirt and rhetoric
Five live, five live
Two bored (f)ello(w)s, how they fuck
Spitting up blood (and tar for luck)
Too bored, too bored

Cosmetic, hosetic, generic, innocents
Cosmetic, kinetic, endemic, citizen

Four man-eaters, how they bite
Picking up writs and sharpening knives
For man, for man
Nine assasins, how they crack
Opening heads and turning our backs
Nine-nine, nine, nine-nine

Cosmetic, hosetic, generic, innocents
Genetic, kinetic, cosmetic, citizen
Cosmetic, hosetic, generic, innocents
Genetic, kinetic, cosmetic, citizen
