XP8 - Hrs:Min:Sec
Electro, Futurepop Now XP8 starts to make some noise! After collaboration with Mr Komor, not just during their tribute to Nitzer Ebb, the sound becomes more tuned and not surprisingly more like Icon of Coil. Actually, sometimes it is brutally alike and some sounds you recognize from Komor's earlier productions. This is still nothing negative though, since 'Hrs:Min:Sec' is a real pack of energy. Like a Gunde Svan during the 80's with an intravenous drip of taurin in the arm.

What to say? A total of fourteen tracks where ten of them are really great, still you should notice that of the four that's left, two of them are intro and outro. "Bleed and Shout", "Purity" (even if I have to grab on to something until my knuckles goes white after the pubertal hint in "from your temple to my tower", so I don't go postal from the awkward sentence.), fantastic "Dreamt of Blue" which I've been humming on for weeks, "Escape Velocity", the wonderful instrumental track "The God Particle" and so on, and so on.

XP8 becomes my favourite this month and strikes right into my personal hit list.
