Third Eye Electric Band
Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare.

“A bracing sequence of seismic dynamics, barbarous stabs of modified frequencies, snippets taken from heaven-knows-what-third-world-radio, children at play with their own atomization, ominous manipulations…, problematic timbral layerings, rhythms that would not remain in place if nailed with a mallet.”
Massimo Ricci / Touching Extremes about Die Schrauber
