Metnem are back after a three year hiatus and continue the timeline of their label history with appropriate storytelling. Metnem is an international so-called ”cyberneuro music collective originating from Serbia and stretching far beyond the reach of universe“. The collective counts Billain, Codex, War or Bohemian & Hermetic among its members and certainly a lot of power behind the releases.
‘Protokol’ doesn’t shy away in terms of power. After classic computer talk and dark vibe in the intro it goes off in no time. Basically raw and metallic, the tune feels as if you’d slam the gas pedal of a racing car all the way down. From 0 to 100 in drölf seconds. In this context ‘The Real Power’ offers the perfect flipside because it is the complete opposite. The pads at the beginning whisper in a relaxed manner and guide the listener gently to the soft drop. Well-known sounds play around the techy drumwork perfectly and I start swinging euphorically.
What comes from Serbia there definitely has the potential to become something big. Starting with the stunning trailer in cyberpunk style, the production of the tunes and the delivery. Rarely seen or heard such a fucking cool comeback!
