Artist: HPC

Distributor: Ant-Zen
Rated: *****
This is another fine proof of the talent scouts behind the Hymen Records label – they listen behind the current styles and trends and come up here and there with some unexpected new signings. HPC is a Norwegian one-man project, which integrates some fine extracts out of Dark Ambient, Powernoise and danceable Electronica music to a musically culmination banished on this first debut album. With the additional sense to integrate some soundtrack-like movie samples, this one comes out as a moody rival to the currently best acts available on a label like Tympanik Audio – band projects like ZENTRIERT INS ANTLITZ, STENDECK or BROKEN FABIOLA are allowed to name for comparisons. Besides the rhythmic-oriented tunes like "Dissociate", "Machine" or "Run", this album too offers rather weird tunes drifting far away of your usual listening experience. Just check out the interrupted "Fond Memories", which sounds like a defective vinyl record repeating a phrase over and over again. An act not to underestimate, let’s look forward for any further quality releases of this fine band project.
