about

"I think, therefore I am."

The Agromaniac's stunning industrial/ambient techno album, loosely inspired by Harlan Ellison's short story "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream".


"80% of the sounds on this record were created using a human voice", which is quite interesting, as the results do not sound like that. That's great: expectations are shattered. Once you know this, you start to note these things in the strong, heavy beat oriented material. It's part techno, part industrial and it's no wonder this release comes with black print on black paper – nice, but difficult to read. The Pan Sonic inspired heaviness of the music is only part of their trade. Maybe half, maybe a little bit more. The other half, more or less, is created with the same voice material melted down to icy plains of ambient atmospheres – cold, stale wind of vast icey masses on the Northpole. The Agromaniac combines this quite cleverly and it makes a highly varied album. In both the rhythm pieces as well as the ambient pieces the voice plays a bigger role. Cut short to make a rhythm, stretched out to make a drone, either way works fine. I am not sure if this is music one could easily dance too, but on a gothic dance party some of these pieces could go down very well."

(Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly)

"Nečekejte temné písně, ani hlasový ekvilibrismus, album AM je záhrobní diskotéka, ochraptělé a rozvrzané techno vycpané skřípáním zpětných vazeb a funěním a chrápáním nějakých monster z temné budoucnosti. Pokud máte rádi temnotu, je AM album pro vás. Agromaniac svou hudbu ničím nezdobí, nahrávka je radikální a sveřepá, dusící se ve vlastní šťávě chlupatých zkreslení a kompresorů. Husté pomalé beaty jsou ořezané na samou kost a dobře vyladěné, zvuk evokuje tisíckrát přehranou kazetu – tu poslední, kterou si z ruky do ruky předávají postapokalyptičtí DJové. Z horní části spektra zbyly jen cáry, na výšky se tu nehraje, hlavní jsou hutné, dobře saturované basy. Beaty nejsou strojově přesné, chvílemi jsou zvláštně klopotné, což působí spíše příjemně a podporuje “rukodělný” dojem..."

(Tomáš Procházka, HIS Voice)
