Umut presents: Gore Tech – Geist Fibre LP [49MOHM]
Ooops, I did it again! After months of abstinence I’ve taken up the pen, ehm the keyboard again to recommend you a damn good release. I’m talking about the ‘Geist Fibre LP’ on OHM Resistance, produced by multi-talent Gore Tech.
From Cyberpunk vibes, twisted sound design, violent kicks, snares and crisp basslines. This is Geist Fibre and I was immediately taken by this release the first time I heard it! Starting with the disturbing intro piece ‘Black Sun’ the ride kicks off. Firstly, we have ‘Hunter’ full of metal attitude with this one metal snare that makes your ears ring like a halftime kick-off. ‘Badlock’, the prime example of the afore mentioned characteristics above, is my personal favorite. Head nod music deluxe. ’Division’ is full of oldschool flavor, rumbling instruments and a saw-bass line that will make your legs shake. Roaring bass lines and relaxed halftime flow plus vocals on (fleek), these are the three things that make ‘Widow System’ stand out. Just ear porn! ‘Pathogen Slumber’, what a beast! Breaky over both ears and aggressive as hell. The intro of ‘Proximity Shift’ triggers goose bumps immediately and attacks directly with Sci Fi vibes, hard kicks and dirty basses. Hardcoooore Vibes, that was my first thought along the pitched kick in the intro of ‘War-ware’. Shortly after the vocal the monster drops and you think to yourself: ‘What the hell?! Okay then, go on’. Technooo!
‘Net Gene Terminal’ starts immediately without much respite and rushes past you at warp speed. Cutting hats and stomping synth hits suck you into an unstoppable vortex of sonics. After all the abstract stuff, ‘Thermoptics’ appears like a welcomed rest as far as the intro goes. But far from it, Gore Tech takes out the sledgehammer and smashes his stuff into your brain without compromise. Can you do that? Yes plz! ‘Ghostcode’ fits quite perfectly in this musical world, but you can confidently say that the track is one of the more relaxed on the album. Last but not least we have ‘Dawn Marker’ which is the perfect final piece of this ride into hell in a class of its own.
All signature features mentioned at the beginning have been elegantly brought together and arranged in this album to form a cyperpunkish body of work that is really something to be proud of. Despite the diversity of each piece, Gore Tech keeps a clear line and takes the listener on a disturbing but at the same time thrilling journey into his world. Thank you, George, for that!
