Einleitungszeit - Die Infektion Der Geburt [Hirnlarm Laboratorium - 2008]Einleitungszeit make dense & overloaded, but always atmospheric and nightmarish mix of; death industrial, noise, power electronics with grim cinematic undertones. This is this Slovakia five piece 24th releases in their 14 year career
From the first track Kontamination: Der Hybride it’s clear they have great understanding of how to balance the duel disciplines of noise and atmosphere perfectly, this is ear shredding but at the same time you can hear every sound and element clearly. The whole album comes off like a deranged nightmare of a controlled future state, you have slashing and brutal beats, overloaded gloomy synth roars, tearing and boiling electronics and overload almost robotic at times vocals. As well quieter more subtle elements to give a nice contrast such as; eerier choir voices, disciplined female voices talking over dark ambient drone ‘n’ groans & bleak filmatic electronic drifts. With all this often dense sound composed, manipulated in a manner that it never sounds messy or overcrowded- just bleak, often painful and atmospheric.
A seething yet controlled,deeply atmospheric and dramatic album that takes you to a dark and painful future. For information about Einleitungzeit and to hear album samples drop into here.Roger Batty
