Album Notes. Pneumatic Detach's first release, on Frozen Empire Media has been sold out for some time, so my knowledge of them is limited to a few appearances on compilations. All I knew was that they were a rhythmic noise band, and their album was supposed to be pretty good.
The music and variety of music on this disc really blew me away. Little did I suspect just how good this CD was going to be, despite having a great roster of remixers, including Scrap. The range of music incorporates aspects of ambient, idm, rhythmic noise, drill, break beat, power electronics and even a touch of Quintet For Piano, 2 Violins, Viola And Cello No.2 In A Major, Op.81 - Jascha Heifetz - The Complete and old school 90s industrial.
There is no way to specifically pin down the sound of Pneumatic Detach from this album, with each song being re-worked to incorporate whatever sound the remixer was going for. Instrumental tracks make up most of the cd, but vocals and samples are also added, and are more than welcome, giving the music a broader range than the great mass of rhythmic noise bands out there.
In fact, using Justin Is A Stalker (AEC Remix) - Pneumatic Detach - Pareses Re:Infected a term as Rhythmic Noise may be deceptive to what their sound is, and so I think I will have to resort to user the border term, Industrial to describe them.
Although the bands that I was expecting to do some great mixes succeeded, bands of which I knew little of and wasn't expecting anything from, more than succeeded, with incredible mixes from Detritus, C2, and AEC battery cage.
The packaging for the limited edition first run is also incredible, and was another surprise. I figured that they hadn't gotten around to scanning and uploading the image. But no, the album cover is black.
Thoughts of 'This Is Spinal Tap' came to mind, but these were erased when I received a package of them in the mail. A solid black digi-pak in an anti-static bag is an amazing design, in my opinion.
It just oozed with cool, making this CD seem more special to me. Rating: A Squid - Industrial Kollective. It is indeed not the music I tend to listen to.
Is it rhythmic noise? Ambient noise? Mellow in parts, and at other times crunchy? Strictly speaking about the sound, ignoring any of the intention behind it, or the symbolism of the title or content, I must say I like the intensity of the rhythmic beats at many points on the CD.
I find myself moving my head to the beat, jammin' in my seat, etc. And really, isn't this what it's all about? There is a great intensity supplied in frequently changing rhythmic structures that is so appealing to the ear. Samples are interspersed throughout and between the harsh, steady beats and layering of sounds. I think that one should not listen to parts of this CD with a pounding headache; it could be quite irritating.
However, if you can get into the groove of the throbbing, quick tempo alternating with ambient soundscapes, then you will find yourself jamming too. What I also like about this CD is the pure industrial quality, not EBM, of the few songs that do have a song structure and lyrics. They Justin Is A Stalker (AEC Remix) - Pneumatic Detach - Pareses Re:Infected me back to the old industrial days, before the influx of synthpop.
There are even electric guitar metal-type riffs thrown into a few tracks. My favourite tracks are "Justin is a Stalker" and "Safe as Houses". Pareses Re:Infected is an enjoyable listen and offers a fun intensity of rhythm and noise that, despite the lack of melodic song Hope - Screaming Headless Torsos - Screaming Headless Torsos overall, appealed much more to me than I ever expected it could.
Who knows, Squid may get me hooked on this stuff yet. Rating: B- Morgana - Industrial Kollective. I really like this CD from Hive. There are 3 or 4 tracks that just blew me away the first time I listened too it. Justin Is A Stalker (AEC Remix) - Pneumatic Detach - Pareses Re:Infected never having heard any Pneumatic Detach other than these remixes I can't really say what they are like, but this CD is brilliant.
There is an amazing blend of industrial styles represented here. There is something here for all fans of real industrial. It is C2, however, that steal the show for sheer power with their Untitled remix going full tilt with straight rhythms and huge, bass-heavy production.
To further perplex us, the acts that we would expect floor-fillers from take an unexpected turn here, with Scrap. The most dramatic turn of pace must come from Iszoloscope though, who subdues a familiar Pneumatic beat beneath a howling storm of noise. It brings the track close to power electronics with its sheer, unrelenting severity until, at the last moment, cohesion is brought to the track by a strict kick-drum rhythm. Incessant in its brutality, even when a regular beat is brought into the mix, it only serves to heighten the tension and oppression of the track, before it subsides to a swamp of horrifically suggestive drips and organic squelches.
In amongst all this noise and distortion, there are occasional oases of calm from such as artists as Detritus, who Meu Coração Só Quer Você - Gian & Giovani - Os Grandes Sucessos up a violently dynamic piece of beauty and filth in equal amounts as it cuts between gentle orchestral strains and juddering, broken beats.
Antigen Shift, too, provides an atypically epic mix of lush, expansive atmospherics that render the underlying beats all the Why Me?
- Various - Billboard Hot 100 Vol.3 grandiose and magisterial in a similar manner to the Dirty War mix from Vers. His brand of cut-up drum and bass [from very obvious Pneumatic Detach sources] coupled with some astute composition lends it an atmosphere that is wholly cinematic and austerely sumptuous as a result.
For utter insanity, though, nothing surpasses the Fragment King mix, which was the cause of several astounded expletives on my part on first listen. Starting from a fairly regular groove, it suddenly My One And Only Love - Dean Martin - I Have But One Heart upon itself into a incomprehensible wall of polyrhythms and frantic processing — an utterly astounding way to finish an album.
However, they are but two low points on what is otherwise a fantastic collection of pioneering and electrifying remixes. Justin Is A Stalker (AEC Remix) - Pneumatic Detach - Pareses Re:Infected Lees - Immanence. She didn't even know what was in the CD player, so I guess this band has picked the right name for itself — as well as made a name for itself. The original Pareses disc on Frozen Empire Media is long out-of-stock and out-of-print at least at time of writing.
I am not among the fortunate who owns a copy; perhaps it will be re-issued one day, and I can get it then.
The limited-edition disc contains the video-montage Levanel and fourteen remixes from artists like Iszoloscope, Grenadier, Navicon Torture Technologies, Antigen Shift and ten others. Some of the remixes are a surprise for someone that expects nothing but harsh powernoise. The Grenadier remix of 'Safe as Houses' tosses around samples and drum grooves to create a danceable, drum-and-bass-ish tune that almost sounds like an early Meat Beat Manifesto track.
Other remixes, notably the Navicon Torture Technologies remix 'Self Medication', takes the original track Justin Is A Stalker (AEC Remix) - Pneumatic Detach - Pareses Re:Infected harsher dimensions of feedback-laden, speaker-overdriving noise-rumblings.
The most notable thing about the remixes is the fact that each remixer puts a great deal of their own individual sounds and styles into the new track. In some ways this disc listens more like a compilation than simply a new Pneumatic Detach disc. All the source material may have come from the mind and hands of Justin Brink.

In "Safe As Houses" Granadier spreads breakcore throbbing and bodily lines. Irreducible noise-escapes break cynically the neurotic systems of "Detached Pneumatic Rosicrucians Kreptkreptinized", oxyhydrogen flames edited by Kreptkrept.
Intelligent spheres streak across the restless and dislocated atmospheres of "Allusion", there Detritus directs its cosmic excavators. NTT, in "Self Medication", reproduces powernoise deafening and scraping platforms; in a metallic chaos petrified shouts invade the reason.
Hectic and incisive beats emitted from the obsessive programmings of C2 which makes "Untitled" one the most hypnotic tracks of the CD. Rare Earth - Motown Vintage Gold wars and twisted eruptions shock the structure of this irrepressible Preghiera: Larghetto - - Wieniawski* - Conus* - Vieuxtemps*, Soo-Hyun Park, Deutsche Staatsphilharmo, breaknoise madnesses by Starving Cell.
Iszoloscope in "Silent House" takes us back on the dusty surfaces of semi-colonized planets, dry noise executions, piercing drones, heavy rhythms and overburdened basses; exquisite performance! Dark-industrial visions pursued by Vers "Dirty War" which displays fearless breaks and abrasive frequencies.
The most eclectic of this gang couldn't lack, Exclipsect creates stabbing idm turbulences and huge noisescapes, no rules and no rest for this "No Grounds For Movement"!
