Skam continue to show they are at the top of their game with Fallen Gods, a hyper-speed journey through fractured acid 'n' breaks tronica' from new face on the block Slashing Cousin. Shrouded in absolutely sterling artwork featuring a godlike figure donning the sunnys and going full flow in early 90's rave tackle Slashing Cousin showcases an album of tracks that audibly hark back to the early 00's Skam sound but with an updated sound schedule with its feet firmly rooted in the future. Opener Welcome Home is a full-throttle in head first mixture of post-dialup electronica giving a clear nod to R Plus 7 OPN before rollin' jungle breaks break up the serenity. Ascend goes Gescom via Black Dog with soaring synth lines and ever evolving drums keep things fast paced while Electro F_ck touches on a darker strain of tough almost gabba strength techno. 1404 takes on a more hip-hop informed sound while Midnight Resistance returns to the hardcore kicks before the backdrop of synths glide through and swallow the track's spine whole. The rest of the LP follows in similar veins; crushing electro broken breaks & industrial strength acid - basically this is absolutely classic Skam in the making and should be checked immediately by anyone into Caustic Window, the Doubtful Guest & VHS Head.
