Atomtrakt/Sperrstelle Nordost/Steinklang/2009 CD Review

Atomtrakt are a band from Switzerland that is a side project of the guy from Vinterriket and in this project he goes for a more Apocalyptic/ Martial Industrial sound and this is a review of their 2009 album "Sperrstelle Nordost' which was released by Steinklang.

Drums are mostly slow and militaristic type beats, while the synths have a very dark feel and you can hear elements of ambient and classical music, as for the accoustic guitars they utilize alot of fingerpicking and full chords to give the music a neo-folk feel.

Vocals are mostly aggressive that also contain a goog amount of clean singing with alot of spoken word passages and samples, while the lyrics are written in German and deal with the situation of Switzerland in the 2nd world war/cold war, as for the production it has a very dark and powerful feel.

In my opinion Atomtrakt are a very good band and this album should be in the collection of every dark ambient and martial industrial fans collection. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blut Und Erde" Flug In Den Tod' and "Stunde Null". RECEMMONDED BUY.
