As soon as we heard the opening track of SyMeta we were sold, after waiting three years since the excellent 'Death of a Typographer', raster-noton's label boss Olaf Bender presented us with another incredible album. Starting with 'Topas' and 'Telegramm' which can be heard as one single piece, we are confronted with punched out punctuation that drives us forward towards oblivion, with crunching beats and distorted chords it gradually builds towards a funked up dancefloor groove. Each track takes an exploration through the elements of early minimal techno, drones of industrial noise and the dread of doom metal, with references to early Sahko, Pan Sonic as well as the Emptyset and Cloaks. With its hypnotic repetition and layered textures, it has the atmosphere more of a live jam than of normal Raster-Noton dissection, a perfect meeting between precision and chance. Like Mika Vainio speeding down the autobahn, blaring minimal techno out the window, it is a force to be reckoned with. An absolutely essential release.
