This project comes to us from the duo Christian Fritzsche (music, arrangement, production, etc.) and Guido Stoye (words, vocals, etc.).  The band was formed just a few years ago and launched their career doing remixes of other bands and appearing on Infacted Records' Infacted Compilation Vol. 1.  2005 saw the band release their full-length debut album on Infacted Records in Europe and Nilaihah Records in North America.

The band members use their own unique differences to create a remarkably unique style of music.  They work with far-removed varieties of musical abilities and styles in creating this unique mixture and the result is a mix of trance, drum n bass, EBM and slight industrial tendencies.  They don't really jump on the club-friendly, four-beat EBM music that's dominating the scene right now, but have a mix of powerful and dancey to laid back trance and ambient textures.  Influences range from Covenant, Haujobb and FLA to Moby and Coldplay.

Be sure to check out the band's website for up-to-date information, news, samples and more.


Interface - Review

I have to admit that it's taken a while for this album to grow on me.  It seems that they combine enough disparate elements together much like Mind.In.A.Box, but it's just not the same. It all sounds much more like Haujobb than much of anything else.  But over time several tracks on the album stand out in their unique ambience as captivating and possible electronic classics.

Spoken word is found a lot on the album and so that's much the way it all begins after the introductory track "prognosis", "Remeber Tomorrow" kicks it off.  The spoken vocals are buoyed up by the slowly building percussion and electronics until the track comes on full-force with a driving dance-friendly beat.  For fans of club music, this track may seem to drag before it takes off, but for those that can appreciate the music for what it is, it's actually quite captivating and a highlight of the album.  "Kaleidoscope" becomes quite a bit more melodic and picks up the pace a little.  But then we're right back to that slightly dragging trancey music and spoken word in "Something Trivial".  This goes on through several tracks with the wide mixture of variety coming together into something that ironically doesn't vary much through the rest of the album.  "Broadcast" and "Your Traces" are slight exceptions with a heavy ambient influence layered over various samples from the lunar landing to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

As pointed out above, it seems that even though a wide variety of styles are fused together to form the overall musical style of this group, it remains mostly unchanging throughout the album.  The use of fast break-beats becomes somewhat annoying, but the various ambient electronic loops or occasional pounding EBM beats bring things back to a more accessible nature.

Overall, the album stands true to the experimental nature of this group.  If you can get past all of the fast break-beats, the myriad of styles seem to be something quite accessible and enjoyable to fans.

Rating: 3.5/5
