Die Angel - Utopien I [Karlrecords 077 Promo]

As announced earlier this year via a feature for the album track "Cargo Cult" featuring legendary producer Oren Ambarchi on overdub duties we see Die Angel, the duo comprised of ex-Pan Sonic's Ilpo Väisänen and Dirk Dresselhaus, possibly better know as Schneider TM, presenting their new album "Utopien I" on Karlrecords these days. Released on April 24th, 2k20 the four track longplay piece opens with with "Epikouros", a dark, brooding, futuristic piece of warped, ever shifting cold Sci-Fi Ambient / Scibient followed by the aformentioned "Cargo Cult". The subsequent "Coup D'Etat" weighs in an intense, alarming vibe combining crackly digital Noize eruptions with sirens, warning beeps and audible danger signals alongside heavily processed tones, filtered warps and blurred out chirps whereas the final "Khormanoupka" combines low end droning with spatial, dubbed out - and somewhat backwards sounding - Electronica beats of a swampy, probably sub-aquatic nature building up towards a Noize-infused climax for a closing and therefore saves our personal favorite for a last tune. Sweet.
