What has been said about ‘Live Salvage 1997->2000’:
"play this to a Slipknot fan and watch his head fall off."

"It reminds us of death. But death sells! As will 'Live Salvage' - though mostly to smug wanker's who like to confuse their less 'artistic' friends with a barrage of outré unpleasantness."
"This is fine granulation work. I will play it for my lectures on 'Noise Resources in Electronic Music'."
"The abstract noise excesses contained on this CD present a clear sign of an attitude critical of technology, and in addition help rehabilitate the somewhat forgotten expression, "Fuck You"."
"a fearsome, skull shattering, flesh shredding display of electronic hostility."
"Notes reveal that seven people attended the digital apocalypse that was '11:18:24, 2000, LOK, München'. Now you can experience the terror in your own home."
"Haswell has made a record that not only demands but also commands your attention"
