Urceus Exit quizas sea una banda que para muchos sea actualmente desconocida ya que tienen relativamente poco en la escena, se trata de un duo de Vancouver, Canada, cuna de grandes artistas industriales como Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Moev y Manufacture y pues bien con esta nueva exportacion de Canada al mundo no nos queda ninguna duda de que siempre han estado y seguiran estando a la delantera en estos terrenos, inclusive por encima del industrial y electro aleman que últimamente solo ha estado repitiendose.
Urceus Exit esta conformado por Richard Duggan y Joel Sellen, debutaron hace 3 años con un disco que ha pasado ya tambien a la historia como uno de los mas interesantes y vanguardistas de la historia de la musica electronica moderna, estamos hablando del album “Contra” editado bajo el sello Artoffact records, en dicho album se combinaban perfectamente elementos de IDM con Electropop y Electronica minimalista, quizas comparable a lo que venia haciendo Haujobb en discos como “Solutions for a small planet” y “Polarity”, el disco no tuvo mucha repercusión debido precisamente a lo complicado de sus estructuras musicales, pero aun asi no se rindieron y el sello Artoffact siguió dandoles el apoyo y la libertad creativa.

Es asi como a 3 años de aquel imprescindible “Contra” llega el futuro clasico “Compensation for the sound of silence” (Compensación para el sonido del silencio), quizas un titulo que a muchos les parecera pretencioso, pero una vez lo escuchen no pensaran lo mismo, Urceus Exit en esta su segunda producción ha logrado no solo encontrar la formula perfecta para equilibrar la IDM y el synthpop con la electronica moderna, ya no recuerdan mas a Haujobb, ahora quizas en momentos podrian parecerse en algunos tracks a lo que esta haciendo Ogre de Skinny Puppy como solista y que se puede apreciar en piezas como “It all adds up to zero” y “The mobilization of blindness”, tambien en momentos podria recordarnos Rupesh Cartel y a los desaparecidos Dubok en “The worst that we’ve become”, “Drifting” y “Pretend”, el resto del disco esta conformado por tracks de muy fina y sofisticada manufactura que dificlmente podran escuchar de alguna otra banda.

El final del disco es contundente con la densa “Compensation for the sound of silence” que no hace mas que dejarnos pidiendo por mas. En pocas palabras el disco es una obra maestra de principio a fin, hace muchos años que no escuchaba un disco de esta naturaleza y que realmente me atrapara como lo ha hecho este, con cada escucha siempre descubres un detalle nuevo, en definitiva un disco que no pude faltar en la colección de ningun amante de la musica synthpop y electronica moderna.

Urceus Exit perhaps is a band that could be stranger for many people because they have relatively little time in the scene, they're a duo of Vancouver, Canada, cradle of big industrial artists as Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Moev and Manufacture and well, with this new exportation of Canada to the world we have not left any doubt that they've always been and they will keep on being to the front part in these scene, inclusive over the german industrial and electro artists, that lately only has been repeating itself.
Urceus Exit is shaped by Richard
Duggan and Joel Sellen, they made their debut 3 years ago with an album that has already also gone on to the history as one of the most interesting and avant-gardists of the history of the electronic modern music, we are speaking about the album "Contra" edited under the Artoffact records label, in the mentioned album they includes elements of IDM combined perfectly with Electropop and minimal Electronics, perhaps comparably to the sound of Haujobb on albums as “ Solutions for a small planet ” and “ Polarity “, the album did not have great aftereffect due to the complicated of their musical structures, but nevertheless they did not give up and the Artoffact label kept on giving them the support and the creative freedom.
It is as well as to after 3 years of their essential
"Contra" arrives the future classic “Compensation for the sound of silence”, perhaps to soeme of you the title could be to many pretentious, but once you listen it you'll not think the same, Urceus Exit in their second production has managed to find not only the perfect formula to balance the IDM and the synthpop with the modern electronics, they already do not remember any more Haujobb, now perhaps in moments they might look alike in some tracks to what it is doing Ogre of Skinny Puppy as soloist and that it is possible to appreciate in pieces as “ It all adds up to zero ” and “ The mobilization of blindness ”, also in moments Rupesh Cartel might remind us and to the disbanded Dubok in “ The worst that we've become ”, “ Drifting “ and “ Pretend “, the rest of the album is shaped for tracks of very thin and sophisticated manufacture that dificultly you'll be able to listen to some another band.
The end of the album is forceful with the dense “ Compensation for the sound of silence ” that makes
leave us only asking for more. Briefly the disc is a masterpiece from beginning to end, for many years i was not listening to a disc of this nature and that really was catching me as this one has made, with every listening you always discover a new detail, finally a disc that could not be absent in the collection of any lover of the music synthpop and modern electronics.
