P.E.A.R.L. is one half of Agony Forces, but in recent years, this side project has taken precedence. The Spanish producer now moves things up a gear with this debut long player; inspired by the Birmingham school of techno in both the title and the approach, it alternates between the relentless panel beating rhythm of "Impatience" and slower, gnarly jams like "Rules of Behavior". Irrespective of the tempo, Temptation is a bleakly intense affair, but there is also no doubting P.E.A.R.L's ability to craft killer techno. This is audible on the hard-edged percussive "Despair" or "Speculum", where the author drops the kind of acrid, gnarly groove that Regis is renowned for.
