Spanish duo Exium depart from the well-worn industrial script on the latest release for their Nheoma label. Instead of broken beats and bombast, the listener is treated to blasts of white noise and resonating bleeps on the title track. That said, the duo manage to retain the interest of the dance floor thanks to their use of clicking percussion and robust kicks. On "Solar Masses", they apply a similar approach, underscoring their tonal frequencies with powerful sub-bass and steely hats. A return to the more conventional industrial techno sound is audible on Pfirter's version of "Subshell", where a rolling groove, punctuated by noisy drops, prevails.
