A blend of EBM and techno with the intensity of a flesh-eating virus.
Indeed, these four tracks are so focused and minimal they're more like variations on a theme. The A-side jams, "State Of Pressure" and "The White Rose," frame their beats with clean, bulky lines and, in the case of the latter, weave busy synth scribbles through their boot-like crunch. Both are tough and imposing exercises in balance and pacing.
"Philosophy Of A Knife" and "Now You Can Pray" are, by contrast, scuffed and claustrophobic, like the duo's manic live performances. Squelchy distortion gnaws at the edges of the basslines with the intensity of a flesh-eating virus. Their barks, meanwhile, are dissolved into heavily processed streams of fuzz that clog every possible crevice. All four pieces are solid, exciting tracks. Yet here's to hoping Bozzi and Chalandon make the B-side's rawness the focus of future output. Just turn it up and let it rip, like they do onstage.
