It's been three years since Ancient Methods' last EP on their own label, with the duo in the meantime becoming a solo project. The now mysterious solitary act delivers a four-track EP entitled Seventh Seal, which in comparison to their earlier output, sees Ancient Methods ease up on the ear-serrating sonics that first garnered them the attention of hardened techno lovers. It does however still pack the industrial weight and displays of menacing grooves the project is known for, most notably "Knights & Bishops". Following a similar chess themed motif, the percussion of "Kings & Pawns" swings and scrapes like a medieval weapon, while church hall chants and machine gun drum patters play major roles in "When All Is Said & Done" and "Castling Becomes Inevitable".
