Robert Hood returns after last year's `Minimal Nation' re-issue with his new artist album `Omega'. The album is based on the 1971 classic science fiction film, `The Omega Man' starring Charlton Heston The album is not intended as an exact soundtrack to run alongside the original film, but Hood was heavily influenced by the movie and has used it as his inspiration..
Tracks such as `Are You God ?' delve into the `messiah complex' of Charlton Heston's last man on earth battle to save humankind from the infected inhabitants of the planet whilst the album's preceding single `Alpha' is dancefloor minimalism at its finest ' yet another lesson in stripped down machine funk. Floating between cinematic experimentalism `The Plague (Cleansing Maneuvers)', low-key, reductionist grooves `The Workers of Iniquity' and pure dancefloor adrenalin rush `Omega (End Times)' Hood gives us another minimal masterpiece.
