"Total Life is the solo project of Kevin Doria who is also a member of the atmospheric/noise/drone group, Growing. This album displays an obsessive sense of composition and an absolute mastery of harnessing chaos to create a solid masterpiece. Heavy electronic washes, multiple layers of feedback and shifting harmonics create a powerful wall of sound that at first seems overtly harsh, but repeated listenings reveal a hidden beauty and natural soothing effect. Fans of Growing shouldnt be disappointed, but to make the comparisons to them would be much too easy. Total Life stands on its own, and walks its own path." - Animal Disguise.
