A few quotes on the Metastatic terrain:
“Extreme remedies are very appropriate for extreme diseases.”
“What if culture itself is nothing but a halt, a respite, in the pursuit of barbarity?”
“Every poem is an attempt to dispossess totality.”
“It’s like calling shit, gold. They call this democracy?”
"Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable."
Cesar A. Cruz
“You stink of despair. Fight back, fight for death if that’s what you want.”
“Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance and obscurantist beliefs.”

Metastatic Liner Notes:
"The sub-Sinatra element in some of these is superb, a kind of lithiumed channelling of 'Frank's Wild Years', although at the same time conjuring electro-visions of late Liberace in heavy red-shift dopplereffect. A Vegas loungeshow at the end of history."
"This album cracks open the rusted fabric of our personal realities to reveal what lies within – and just as significantly, what lies without. Prepare to be haunted. Prepare to have your jaw broken by a slap to the face of unfathomable power."
"The Melodies! The Maladies!"
