The follow-up to Christoph De Babalon’s ‘Teyas’ collaboration with WIDT picks up in equally bleak and dramatic terrain, following his instincts for a sort of theatrical breakcore style comparable with early Venetian Snares on Zhark.  There’s nowt like a bit of German opera to get the blood up, as with the scene setting chorale that gives way to gnashing breaks in ‘Kein Bild Machen’, while ‘Hung on a String’ comms with pebbledash drums and deathly, keening strings beside the bone-clacking breakbeat churn of ‘Swimmer.’ We’re best reminded of V Snares circa the ‘Salt’ EP on the EP highlights ‘Cool Priest’ and ‘What’s Wrong With Tomorrow’ while ‘Ether’ hits with more deviant drum funk a la a gothic Nucleus & Paradox.
