Panther Modern – White Light Power Electronics CDr

Dumpsterscore Home Recordings

White Light Power electronics features an odd mix of styles and sounds which may somewhat be attributed to its wide cast of contributors that include D of Black Bloc, T.O.M.B., Colin Orr of Suicide, and even an organist from a church. What this amounts to is an album that features some off kilter experimental tracks and combines them with seething feats of industrial and power electronics.

Sometimes I feel the more experimental tracks are a bit jarring and don’t mesh too well with the rest of the album, but they are also what gives White Light Power Electronics its uniqueness and adds this kind of dark playfulness which is a very strange combination but one that seems to work for Panther Modern.

The noisier elements of the album are quite strong. Each track is untitled but in the 5th and longest track here is when the over driven throbbing attacks really come to shine. From here on out it’s mostly constant audio warfare complete with wavering tones, ghastly vocal attacks, and carefully controlled feedback.

A unique and engaging release, White Light Power Electronics is something that most fans of power electronics should hear if even for its work in the genre, though the other elements that are included here are quite engrossing as well.
