Powernoise, Industrial There's really not a damned thing wrong with this stuff. It is solid and competent.

Dacaboya gives us 13 offerings (7 originals and 6 remixes) of typical Powernoise. Nothing exciting. Nothing innovative. Just good solid crunch and bounce. If this is standard fare for the genre, it is very good fare. It is Powernoise comfort food.

"Resiliencia" has a wonderful throb to it. That deep distorted chugging undulating of an old diesel locomotive leveling your home. "Post Turmoil Calm" sports the oscillating thick static of something very bad about to happen to the mother ship.

If I were to nitpick, I'd say that each song is a slave to the pattern. And though the patterns are quite good, one probably needs to be dancing and sweating to stay involved through the whole song.

For instance, "Resistiendo" could be retitled "The Machine that Goes Ping" since we hear that sound so often nearly ruins the song. The limited song structure is evident time and again. "Afraid to Speak" isn't a descriptive or illustrative title. Rather, it is the sampled phrase that is used over and over again in that song. A bit more variation would be nice. Not necessary for the genre, but nice nevertheless.

That said, this release fits very nicely into the boundaries set by Powernoise, crunchy distorted percussive loops sprinkled with samples and eschewing harmony and melody. For those of you who dislike boundaries, you may dislike this. For those unabashed fans of the genre, go get this one. It'll fit well into your library.
