Artist: Synapsis
Title: Officina Ferraria Reworked
Format: CD
Label: Zoharum (@)
Rated: *****
his release is a compilation of remixes from the first album of this polish band that, according to the linear notes, stand "firmly in the industrial stylistics with hints of dark ambient and noise" but is not the band to be reviewed but his remixers.
Starting with the dark ambient oriented remix made by Wolfram of "Illuminacja W CiÄgarni" and ending with the quiet almost lowercase Tomasz Krakowiak's treatment of "Sill Weave" the card played by this kind of release is variety and, so, there's remixers that emphasize the industrial aspect as GEttNER's remix of "Opór Materii" or the noise one as VilgoÄ's remix of "Pater Noster" or, even, the field recordings aspect as the remix operated by Tyko Ching.
In my opinion this is an enjoyable release but this kind of release are material for djs rather than objects for fans as they suffer the lack of an unifying tract for all the tracks. Nice but, musically speaking, only for collectors.
