-The opening title ‘Korrosionsangriff’ sets the mood for this trip, beneath crackling noises and dark, brooding atmospheres the rhythm clocks in well below 140 bpm. ‘Piezo Resistance’ is a prime choice for Rhythm Noise DJs, ‘Kryophaze’ a superb cut of Industrial Acid. Most tracks are around 145 bpm and superbly bass-heavy, typified amongst others by ‘Re:Thrilled’, a nice and vaguely EBM-ish example of the more subversive side of the 13th Monkey: Moody, threatening, full of tension, a track so ultimattimately urban in sound. Towards the end of the CD the band launches two longer tracks:
The 10-minute rave bastard ‘Sojfu’, sporting surprising breaks and Japanese vocal samples, and the epic closing title ‘Guenon’: Starting with the quasi-rhythmic strc structures generated by carefully layered noises, before the kickdrum comes in and out time and again over the whole 16 minutes of this standout piece. Is there a genre called “Psychedelic Gabber” -this is the single-handed invention of it! How about thout the self-proclaimed objectives of 13th Monkey - digital fractures, revolution in the wires? Andreas Thedens and Harm Bremer have used their long-term expertise in music production
to create an album that reflects various moods and extends beyond thd themes of aggression and subversion; it also takes a deep look inside and
explores the darker realms of the human psyche. Yet, there is still plenty crossover appeal that will please fans of Rhythm’n’Noise and followers of more courageous Techno alik alike. With just two albums, 13th Monkey have not only developed a trademark sound, but also proven they can apply plenty of variation to it. Welcome back, Monkey!
