when this came out in 2002 it was considered "not inventing the wheel, solid harsh noise" -- got this off josh when I was out in Portland in 2001/2. He was the only person I knew there into noise at the time so we of course immediately started a project (Now In Darkness World Stops Turning) He's on my Mt. Noisemore along with MagWheels and Cold Electric Fire as projects I'll continue to rep forever because their style has been more personally staying than shit from any "noise legend."

Why would you want to release a 15+ year old noise tape, originally put out on cdr in 2002, in 2017, an era with plenty of brand new harsh noise? Well, sorry boys, because it's better.
In this age of sound bite based politics seemingly seeping into music its nice to hear something committed to subtlety. You don't know what it is within the first 10 seconds of pressing play; it rewards loyalty and patience, where much modern noise seems to reward "whatever"-WORSHIP.
The fuckin' tape changes in organic, unpredictible ways, not just quiet to loud / piano loop / drop off sigh. In this way Power Cannot Conquer Heaven is actually abnormal. Proof that you can make long form, gritty, old school American brutality with experimental soul intact. Sounds killer on tape to boot. - JC (3/28/17)
