CENOTYPE: Origins CD Hive Records
Cenotype is a one man project active for years in the scene even if this, his first official release has just seen the light of day through the quality driven Hive Records.
‘Origins’ is a professionally constructed powernoise album hitting the genre from a danceable and commercial approach that has been utterly torn apart with the incessent rage and essence of power electronics, it’s not rocket science, but it doesn’t need to be.
A healthy (?) blend of dark ambience soars throughout the backdrop of the album glueing the tracks together; it’s this rich paste that solidifies the album as one and this release works best as a whole rather than the sum of its parts. The only downside to this is of course that the album does not dare stray from it’s chosen path and this could be too much for those who want variation.
A brutal, rich and promising debut. Does exactly what it states on the tin.
