This loud, crude Garage Industrial satirizes and attacks American right-wing social and political institutions.


"'Take' is a truly innovative effort from an artist who may actually become electronic music's saving grace". - Liz O., Flipside magazine

"Musically, AnthroPile is mechanical industrial metal with large doses of old-school electronic body music. Think of a cross between mid-80's Front 242, Consolidated, late-80's Ministry, Skrew, and the sampling & humour of Negativland." - Blatant Propaganda

"The entire release wreaks of success... The music is *fabuloust* - it is unique, has great production, executed to perfection, intense, danceable, diverse, and it just kicks ass. I have *never* heard anything like this before..." - Kim Alexander, Last Sigh

"I really like this grand, almost operatic take on the industrial feel. [AnthroPile] has a lot to say, and he says it quite well... perhaps this isn't the most commercially-appealing sound. I don't think [AnthroPile] cares. He's put together a solid set of songs, stuff that really works." - Jon Worley, Aiding and Abetting

"Musically, this album has a very STRONG resemblance to early Circle of Dust from the first two albums, especially "Brainchild". One might well think that Klay Scott was involved in this project..." - criticaltom

"Every song has a statement, that's for sure. Political samples added to sharp cynical lyrics make this record not only a sound experience, but also an expression of the thoughts of mastermind [AnthroPile]. Here is one guy who cares!" - Toxin, New Empire

"Never do I shun experimentation, but sometimes there's a thin line between musical exploration, noise, and just plain craziness... Noise addicts will like the harsh, speedy guitar and effects, and the armada of layered samples." - Rev. Daryl Litts, In_Faction

"It made me want to hop on my bike and go riding... in the middle of the night with no headlights." - Charu, What's Up! magazine

"It's just too loud. I had to listen to it a few songs at a time because my ears started to hurt." - AnthroPile's little sister
