Fixmer/McCarthy - ... Between the Devil
EBM This is for us that were born during the first half of the 80's and were way to young to have experienced when Nitzer Ebb released their fantastic album 'That Total Age' ('87), now we have a new chance. This album will make the ones born in the early 90's envy us because we were there when the soon well-known tracks entered the dance floors, all in the same way we envy them born in the 70's.

It's very rare with a mighty release like this. Inlays from Nitzer Ebb from Douglas McCarthy together with heavy and hard EBM from the French DJ and artist Terence Fixmer.

The tracks "Freefall", "Splitter", "Through a Screen" and "Destroy" will be very common on the dance floors in the near future and "Freefall" is already played on high rotation around the alternative world. If it wasn't for a couple of less great tracks in the middle of the album it would have been an obvious 10-pointer. Despite of that I still count this album to one of the best releases in a very long time.

I roll out my carpet and get down on my knees to obey Mr Fixmer and Mr McCarthy. Show me the place were the temple shall be built.
