drone2805 AMEN TMA, I will remember this name. I FELT FOR THE FIRST TIME, IN AT LEAST FOUR YEARS, LISTENING TO THE ALBUM THAT MY HEART PUT OUT OF ME THROUGH MY MOUTH AND MY VICERAS WILL EXPLODE SO POWERFUL THE WORK! Reminds me of NIN in its prime. It's as if the artists has sucked in the inspiration lost from the best industrial music artists of yore! And there's more, it's innovative and incredibly well structured. My recommendations are very high. To listen. It must! Favorite track: As The Nyght Falls.

Neil Talbott (Aquilegian) This is really different, the quite alien insectoidal sounds make for compelling listening, and the occasional reassuring regular rhythmic patterns ensure that I, as an human audient, don't lose my way completely in this sonic view of an alien civilisation. Favorite track: The Rules of Dung Beetle Traffic.

Ďuro Ďurček Very nice, innovative and intricate recording. This is musical science; "post-music" and "uneasy listening" are fitting tags. This is not suitable for every mood, but once you're in the right one, there are many rewards to be found here. This is the experimental genre at its most experimental. Favorite track: The Moulting.

Amen Tma is a project of ::.: and acidmilk. Spiritually a successor to Angakkut, but musically a completely different entity, it was conceived in late 2011 for the purpose of experimentation with combining composition techniques of electroacoustic music, balinese gamelan and polymetric techno.

Spanning nearly three years of work, their debut album Insect Phonetics Research yields a study in sibilant stridulation sounds, interwoven with messages preaching an ever approaching Eschaton. This material is complete with a bonus live recording alongside remixes by Sion Orgon, Loyu, Drakh, Makkatu, Rentip, &apos, RBNX and Urbanfailure, resulting in a total 90 minutes of music.
