CORY STRAND "I AM BEYOND YOUR EXPERIENCE: THE NIGHT STALKER" 3CDr (AOW 154)
I personally find Ramirez tedious and incredibly self-serving (as all serial murderers are at heart); his crimes were pointless and callously brutal, and his reflections on his life, if you can call them that, add up to little more than an endless cloud of noxious hot air void of insight. With other serial murderers an intellectual/psychological blueprint can be created and some sort of understanding can be reached. With the Night Stalker, there is only a roaring emptiness.
These recordings were created using elements of interviews with Ramirez and snippets of his favorite album, AC/DC's "Highway To Hell," which he would listen to prior to his murders. I hope these compositions illustrate the intensely violent nothingness that Ramirez projected.
Presented as three separate albums that work as one, along with a bonus disc. Four CDs of ripping HNW and gigantic swathes of death ambience, in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies. $30 ppd. in the United States, $43 rest of world.
