Album Notes
Hailing from the wasteland of Greater Cincinnati, The Night Divided are a fem-fronted dystopian punk-band who would be the first to go in a future ruled by individualism and false-fronts. Disruptor, their first full-length, is impressive from the start. Yeah, there's records... But every now and again within the re-discovery of a previous re-discovery which was really just the continuation of the interest in vinyl... There are RECORDS!!!

In today's record market (or 'Industry' to you newer fans) an emphasis is in place that elevates the importance of the release as a whole. Especially when it's a vinyl record... Disruptor is a fucking beautiful product! Die-cut sleeve heralding a sculpture titled EXTENT by Australian Abstract Expressionist and Minimalism sculptor Clement Meadmore (1929-2005) which was installed at the artistic anomaly known as Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park located in Hamilton, Ohio [Butler County].

The die-cut cover reveals a small look of the impressive high-gloss inner dust-jacket that provides another look at Meadmores Extent...The sculptures reprise adds to the mystery, drama, and desperation that brings forth even more speculative pondering. These qualities, however, appear again and again as the music plays in never-ending combinations. As you dig deeper and deeper into The Night Divideds songs, the album grabs you and refuses to let go. You become a hostage... Disruptor plays as a deep, sonic soundtrack of rebellion itself... Disruptor hits you where it counts. Being of an artifact-grade quality form start to finish, I hereby issue yet one more beard-nod to the introspective element... Like, as-if watching Kubricks cinema masterpiece 2001: A Space Oddity as Disruptor unfolds in celebration of the moment as a blueprint for now... It's hard to notice the revolution until it gets in your ears. Disruptor gets there with ease.

I turned Disruptor about six complete times until I held it up to the light so as I could get a good look at any etchings near the record label before I realized that the record itself is on transparent purple vinyl! This record is yet another great record on several levels. Disruptor is as pure sound-treason... Disruptor could be a record from a band straight from Philip K. Dicks book VALIS... This record could easily be passed for a new SELBY TIGERS release or even (perhaps) lost album by UKs PENETRATION wedged in-between 1978s Moving Targets or its 1979 follow-up, Coming Up For Air.

Disruptor is the perfect result of metered focus, determination and skill. The revolution is somewhere out there. Looking for you... Waiting for you... Disruptor plays from behind the shadow-lines of insurrection.

See you soon.
