LIGHTS OF EUPHORIA

KRIEG GEGEN DIE MACHINEN

Coincidentally released just a little in advance of the "Terminator 3" film which explores a similar premise to the title of this album this is the one that may well elevate LOE into the electro premier league. The title is referred to only in the spoken/instrumental tracks such as the opening "Vorwort" (foreword) and the "Interface" tracks which could easily provide the soundtrack to the aforementioned blockbuster, from the dramatic and powerful "Interface I" through to the closing "Interface IV" which would accompany the happy ending. Otherwise these tracks are like an amalgam of modern electronic styles from future pop, electro and EBM with a number of well known names lending LOE mainstay Torben Schmidt a hand, ranging from Ronan Harris who provides the vocals for "Consequence (Face Yourself)" which doesn't actually imitate the VNV sound, being a more generic future pop offering although you can tell who's singing this is a mile off to Gerrit Thomas, whose contribution to "True Life" sounds closer to the lighter Fictional style than the better known Funker Vogt although "Nothing At All" should appeal to all Apoptygma fans or those who enjoyed synthpop bands such as Distain. "Wings Of Time" (which Thomas co-wrote and which also features Frank D'Angelo's gruff vox) will satisfy your EBM cravings quite nicely, as, I'm sure, will "Aggression Pact" which sounds closest to Funker Vogt's stomping EBM (despite the fact that Thomas plays no part in it!) and is sure to be one of the many dancefloor stormers this album will provide. The LOE remix of Run Level Zero's "Shadows Merging" keeps the high octain EBM going strong as does "Fly To Target (Shellshox Remix) which features the writing and vocal talents of Alex Mather of Aslan Faction/Taktikal Sekt. Unsurprisingly this is a hard hitting stormer and it's this style that seems to dominate the latter sections of the album, at least until we get the HECQ remix of "True Life" which utterly transforms the track into a nicely atmospheric electronica offering, complete with crackling record effects. NanNamBulu's mix of the same track shares more in common with the original, maintaining the essential future pop stylings as do the rest of them, including the Apoptygma Berzerk Vs. Industrial Heads remix of "Show Me Your Tears" (not your typical APB track, it must be said) and the 'Mirrorman Mix' of "The Firm" which mixes darker vocals with catchy lead melodics.

I've actually reviewed the limited edition version with four extra tracks, not sure which ones aren't on the normal version but, even if it costs a bit more this is definately the version to get, excellent value all round and full of damned fine tracks.
