Xenonics K-30 : Automated [2002]

...automated uses trademark stamp of "power electronics" merely as a tool, as one of the music devices. in its best moments the album acquires a quality of a soundtrack, building almost cinematic atmosphere that at times explodes with unbridling violence of clashing noisy blasts, or slowly builds a droning heavy textures out of shifting hydraulics, processed heavy machinery, cold vibrating frequencies, and even a string here and there among the clouds of dark electronics. you might have to pick and choose, hunting moments here and there, but for some reason (perhaps because by this time the atmosphere has settled in, or because they are indeed different) last four tracks are my favorite, varying between merciless power rhythms of dyplastoid and incredibly mesmerizing heavy sci-fi textures of G.M.A.S. (an absolute favorite of mine)
