This Borders Edge Records Compilation features a selection of Electronic Rock tracks featuring the "High Voltage" contributions of guitarist and violinist Bernhard Beibl.
Writes Owen Maxwell, in a review for Ottawa Magazine (printed mag) June 2, 2017. <<
Those killer instrumental albums can be the perfect soundtrack to a movie you haven't seen yet but will make up as you listen. "Telemetry" bubbles with electric mystery as it pushes forth into different dark and brooding frontiers, but with the ever-shrieking guitar, it always has a sense of raw power in its drive that makes it feel like fun retro music but somehow new. Like a dawn, "Event Horizon" breathes with hope and wonder like a rising sun and not the black hole its title suggests, but as it moves into more prog electronics and organs a heavier overtone starts to take shape setting the mood for the wailing and exploring path the song soon follows. Moving straight to a scoring tone "Subspace Breach" ripples with electric drive, fluttering like a futuristic X-Files theme, before the guitars shift it to a more 80's sci-fi feeling that once again places it somewhere between nostalgia and a new discovery. Going high and low, "Mission To Shangri-La" pushes its bass rumbles to allow cascading synth lines to take shape around it, even at times shifting to more emulative sounds that suggest actions taking place, and creating an audio narrative in the process. >>
