The introduction: instrumental, pathetic, a kind of electronic orchestral soundtrack - later [de:ad:cibel] develops a fusion of techno, EBM, Industrial and Electro-Pop; in the second track vaguely reminiscent of the Swiss duo Yello. Only the voice sounds less natural bass, rather more like a burping Mongolian throat intonation. In "Vanitas" is to dicover a spoonful of old Kraftwerk, perhaps also because the German language is used, which fits well with the old-school sound.
Programmed software creations with dark, powerful dance-character; spiced by menace. Party in the post-apocalyptic factory building with dancing bodies twitching in laser illumination. Cold, dark, energetic. This might be in the long run a bit monotonous, especially the vocals doesn´t vary in their strained, barely feigned bass. Only in songs like "Rain of Gold", the voice is better integrated through an almost melodic whisper. "Plastique Beat" sounds very x-arbitrary as one of many techno remixes in an endless loop for the dancefloor. Exciting and an atmospheric highlight of the album is "Disconnected Child" with integrated acoustic and electric guitar parts.
The bottom line is a worth listening for Electro-friends of the moderate type to enrich their club sound. The album is less exciting on some routes. The “German Bass Machine” plays off their ideas especially in the chilly trendy modern ambience with a sense of atmosphere.
