    Loving this thing! At first I thought I’d be prone to enjoy it because of the connection with that famous Swedish satanic-pop band, but, man… it really sounds and feels good to my demanding ears.

  • André Snyde Lopes

    The sample seemed very airy and a tad slow-moving… Not sure about this but I am indeed intrigued. I do love that artwork…

    AMG is too busy swooning over Tony Kakko and Mikael Akerfeldt to help you, I’m afraid. Let alone trying to write the September ROTM…

    It took me longer than it should have to realise Philip K. Dick is his whole name, and you weren’t being triggered into nostalgia by memories of “Dick reading binges.”

      “I’m getting a PhD in Dick Reading”

      The future. I want to believe.

  • Morrowind542

    Am I the only one reminded of Dream Theater’s Black Clouds and Silver Linings by the cover art?

  • Francesco Bordoni

    Loving this so far, good find! Also, full points for reminding me it’s been too long since I played Deus Ex: them memories!

  • Not really what I was expecting after reading the review. It all sounds rather happy and bouncy. I expecting more of an atmospheric trip through space. The 2nd track is a bit too dancy for my taste, especially the chorus. Overall, I don’t hate it, but it’s not what I was hoping to hear after looking at that cover.

    • Yeah they definitely like a good beat. Hope it grows on you!

  • El_Cuervo

    Synthwave? In my metalz?

    The dream.

    • André Snyde Lopes

      Haken didn’t do it for you?

  • Tremens

    This is abolutely amazing. Right up my alley.

    It seems that all their releases are around the 27/28 minutes mark, so I wonder why the first two are considered EPs by the band/label and this one as a full album for the same length.

    • tomasjacobi

      For what it’s worth, the album title on the iTunes store is:
      “Fix Idé – EP”

      • Tremens

        Ok good to know, on the Metal Archives it’s considered an album, and I think it’s the same on Deezer.

        Not that it matters much anyway, this is grade A stuff to my ears nonetheless.

  • Feytalist

    That intro track does sound a bit like the Deux Ex game menu screen, doesn’t it.

    Know what this reminds me of a little bit? Gravisphere, Vintersorg’s electro-black side project, which sadly seems to have fallen at the wayside after releasing one song.

  • tomasjacobi

    This is amazing stuff. I’m already a big fan after the first listen on Spotify. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
    Vinyl ordered!

  • Mr T

    About time (hah!) they got some love around here. Been a favourite of mine for years and completely unknown by most.

        And he pities fools and he can rip phonebooks in two with his bare testicles.

  • GardensTale

    Oh I like this. It has a hypnotising quality I really enjoy, not a lot of bands seem to nail that effect without becoming boring. And it doesn’t sound like any other band I know, although I must admit I don’t know a HUGE amount of industrial. The ones I do know are more of the stompy type so to hear a mysterious spacy take is really the insectile pollen-distributing robot’s central leg joints.

  • Ninjakicktotheface

    Completely different genre, but this to me gives really strong vibes of 10,000 hz Legend by Air. Really interesting sound, I like it.

    • Air as in “Sexy Boy”? Haha I haven’t listened to any of their other stuff, will have to check it out.

      • Ninjakicktotheface

        A month late, but yeah, them- the first two tracks on 10,000 hz Legend was what I was thinking of

  • Oscar Albretsen

    Really dig this song. Just takes me far, far away. These guys would probably be great to listen to while tripping on acid… Certainly wanna get this but that 28 minute thing is holding me back. However, if it’s all good for 28 minutes, it’s probably worth owning. I’m sure we’ve all owned our share of full lengths where the only thing we ever listened to was one four minute song.

  • Tyr

    Reminds me of Duran Duran’s Chauffeur except longer and repetitive.

    • Man that song is amazing. If this record had sounded like a 40 minute long version of The Chauffeur it would have been 5/5 instantly.

  • Thorbjørn Thaarup

    It’s mildly amusing that a “fix idé” in Danish descripes an idea which is strong in the mind of it’s creator but of little use to others.

    • Thorbjørn Thaarup

      May I add that it doesn’t apply for this album which is clearly of use to others.
