Infinite Density begins with the fury of automatic fire and its a frenzy of sensation and dark grooves from there. Sonic Groove, Adam X’s label, specializes in this kind of thing where techno bleeds over the edge into quasi-industrial and EBM, and Infinite Density is as good an epitome as you’re going to get.
References abound to Aum Shinrikyo, the Japanese doomsday cult that recently resurfaced in Russia after executing the deadly 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway. “Panic Stricken,” “No Solace” and “Survivor Guilt” (along with a title plainly called “Aum Shinrikyo”) seem to allude to extreme states before, during and after the attack, though of course they can be listened to without reference to anything other than the music itself. “Serpentine” in particular hits a certain state of physicality strongly associated with the hard techno records of the late 1990s – part of a subterranean assault on the senses without pause for 60 frenetic minutes.
