Our favorite usual suspects are back, and kick off this EP with the surprisingly optimistic "Gung" which bases itself on a loose percussion groove. As the bouncy bassline plods along, the boys sprinkle even more tribal stardust and get those asses shaking.
The shadowy "Caterpillar" makes sure to switch the vibe ASAP with evolving pads and wall-of-sound effects viciously shaking the foundation. Evolving stabs run throughout the whole affair adding even more tension to the claustrophobic atmosphere. The eerie vibe continues with "The Realm", where more of the extravagant effect manipulation is present. Haunting pads and post-apocalytpic soundscapes remind us, once again, that the kings of darkness are in charge.
