Umwelt has been releasing rave-friendly electro since the late 90s, impervious to the flows and ebbs of fashion. The French producer's first album in a decade continues to mine this approach. For those who want to recreate the atmosphere of an illegal gathering, there's the nocturnal, end of days acid of the title track and the aptly-named "Citadel Of The Chao', while "World Shatters" pushes the listener into a nightmarish world where eerie synths and waves of monstrous bass prevail. Umwelt doesn't offer a mellow alternative, but there is a more atmospheric side to his work, audible on "Factory Of Death" and "Non Conformity" . However, this soon fades as the droning, bone-crushing Revolt - and "End of Light" lurch into earshot.
