The second release from San Francisco label Mistress of Evil Records, ...
... seeks to define the concept of Trauma Trance: Music that was meant to shake you up mentally, to stir up your emotions and push you forward to new perceptions and ways of thinking.
Trauma Trance is not about dark vs. light, negative vs. positive, or any other dichotomy. It is music that tests the limits of your mind and makes you question your own sanity (and the sanity of the artists!). Step aside from the traditionally negative connotation of the word trauma and allow the music to alter your consciousness.
This compilation sweeps the listener into a vortex of new and innovative sounds as it travels from the twisted, funky opening tracks into the dark depths of the night, testing the previous limitations of psy-trance boundaries.
Eight underground artists from around the world express their own interpretation of the Trauma Trance concept.
