Koljah and Detuschmann, however, layer a sample over top the proceedings, giving an added dimensions to the proceedings. The echoed and somewhat distracted voice blabbers on for a while and gradually finds itself as the main event alongside a looming organ, wispy trumpets and melodic percussion. Following it up, Ed Davenport's Stripped Mix lives up to its name, washing away nearly everything to create an ominous, psychedelic rework of the tune that should go down well in the dead of the night. Its spare, otherworldly vibe is striking—unlike its digital counterpart that plays it far safer.
On the flip, Koljah and Detuschmann go for peaktime. The tempo and grandeur is increased with solid—but not fantastic—results. "Altars of Madness" and its pounding rhythm and relentless synth melody sound mighty similar to a host of other tracks on the market at the moment. "Altars of Madness" is a great name for a tune, but this bit of mimicry doesn't deserve it.
