Epoch Volutio Limited Edition Mini CDr Pushes The Sonic Envelope

In the global state, economies, politics and peoples combine in transnationalism and what occurs in one country’s system ripples through the rest of the world, often with tragic consequences. The audacity of those in power, coupled with the desire to control and manipulate, has led to the chain of events currently striking across the globe.

But this came as no surprise to Epoch, which chronicled the path to today’s crisis with the 2013 album “Purity & Revolution,” featuring the power hungry and those who warned in their own historical words, set to the backdrop of industrial militaristic machine music.

An anthem to the corrupt nature of politics and economics, “Purity” displayed a range of style and instrumentation from subtle neo-folk acoustic guitar, to powerful symphonic martial arrangements, to driving and distorted guitars.

From this album, a ripple effect has been generated, first with Carbon 12 Records releasing the remix Limited Edition CDr, “[R]evolution,” featuring a diverse and global range of artists to remix tracks from “Purity & Revolution.”

And if this was not enough, German troublemaker VUZ Records, thru it’s imprint Basket’s Kitten, immersed even deeper into the abysses of sonic warfare and commissioned four tonal deconstructions from fellow minds If, Bwana (USA), <dE/mutE> (Germany), Freiband (Netherlands) and N.fra (Germany).

If, Bwana opens the little pest of a 3” tall CDr featuring four tracks - each inch more annoying than the other, with a dark tribute to the leaders of the past. <dE/mutE> reveals his relaxed, nevertheless sinister face with a more ambient approach, followed by the Dutch soundtwister Freiband tearing apart the original and leaving an acoustic skeleton. This tonal torture is finished off by N.fra from Germany, a very old project with a new guise, delivering a slow paced rhythm'n'drone piece of... well, can we still call it music?

4 tracks on 3 inches in 20 minutes - enough is enough.
