Hey H.!
...I didn't hear it in the best conditions (during work, with headphones nonetheless) but it is a frightening listen, and a very interesting one (except for the last track)...
Thanx a bunch!

Any chance for a recording of his cobra? Magick, by the way, is probably my favorite Zorn. Thanks a ton.
