Since 2011 Ontal have shaped their reputation as spearheads of the industrial techno faction and with their sophomore album they join HANDS in an intuitive liaison: Beats and filth club appeal and noisy debris are the shared agenda. And yet the sound of Amass is more than a combination a hybrid of styles but a coherent flow of dark rhythmic and experimental music that touches the conscience of the industrial aficionado. An album in its classic sense these 11 tracks offer a lot of physical appeal and substantial bass riffs as well as a thrilling storyline an hour of sound that wont let you go. With a string of 12 releases and remixes under their belt Serbian duo Boris Brenecki and Darko Kolar aka ONTAL are surely one of the most requested acts in the industrial techno circuit which currently only seems to gather more and more momentum. Perfect times for an album with a timeless sound a culmination point of traditions: Amass doesnt exclude it gives equal room to the minimal elegance of First Sign and the heaviness of Improvidence upfront techno bangers like Defeated Obstacles or Solidification stand next to the IDMenriched abstraction of the two parts of Pareidolia. For Industrial People is like a wonderful welcome gift for the HANDS crowd and the fastest tune among the lot. Sonic post punk references can be found throughout like in the clanging metal sounds of 2416 and the final cut Pressure Rise Equation successfully bridges the gap between dance floor and experiment. The amassed consciousness of a genre conveyed in an album that will generate massive crossover appeal!
