Album Review
Reviewed 2016-08-04 
Cut Us Up, Sonar, ant-zen

"the dark corners of rhythmic industrial," somewhere between experimental hard techno and tape feedback. Every track is brutal and mechanical and faintly entrancing. [No bad tracks]. Each track ends somewhat abruptly, some end ~5 secs early.
certainly less mathy than Black Light…

1) Intruder (3:43) -- moderately harsh static with a subtle beat(BPM 125).
* 2) Closing In (3:56) -- industrial half-static/half-beat, debatably techno, 100% distorted. Ends 3 secs early, BPM 121
3) Them And Us (4:32) -- more experimental-sounding noises, steady repetitive rhythm. (BPM 168)
* 4) Cut Us Up (3:35) -- vicious techno w/ destroyed vocals. almost accessible. BPM 125
* 5) Black Sunset (3:54) -- futuristic beeps and hisses over a skipping hard drive (BPM 185) ends 5 secs early
* 6) Touch The Mirror (3:39) -- starts like Windowlicker but more brainfried, moves into hard techno. BPM 127
* 7) Melted Dream (5:24) -- wet, rhythmic, heavily filtered techno, almost like Autechre in short loops. 'melted dream' is the perfect name. BPM 125
* 8) Never Too Late (3:19) -- the most raw and demented and painful, that's saying a lot. BPM 123
9) Atomized (6:34) -- minimal noises, atmospheric, mechanical churning.
