Psyclon Nine - Divine Infekt (Metropolis)
Eleven tracks coming in at about 45 minutes, Psyclon Nine have used a simple adjustment to the mix to take care of an ongoing problem. Instead of placing their highly distorted vocals way on top, they are putting these vocals further down, most of the time, into the musical electronic mix. The result is a much improved sound, allowing their superb industrial rhythms and progressions to not be overshadowed by the heavy distortion of the vocals.
This is not true of most songs on this disc, but it is the case with enough tracks to highlight what has always been their strong point all along: excellent instrumental writing.
I just wish the entire album showed this positive move.
(3 stars out of 5)
