This is the 21st release on RIOT Radio Records, an independent techno label based in Scotland.
Cymbol is the brainchild of a twisted mind-meld specialising in various forms of sonic manipulation via techno and
fragmented electro. Formed in 2001 by former members of Wave 7 as a reaction to the generic club music of the era,
their style is a fusion of intense polyrhythms and intricate synthesis composed with a combination of software and
electronics ranging from harmonic electro soundscapes through to dissonant & baby in the blender & doom montages.
Continuing with our ‘Limited As Fuck’ series of 12”s, Cymbol have come out of the shadows to unleash their first full
release on the label after appearing on our ‘STAY TUNED Sampler Vol. I’ V/A triple vinyl album with ‘Transient’ a
couple years ago.
There’s four utterly savage tracks on this wraith like manifestation. Starting off with the beat of heavy tribal overtones it
twists and turns into a jacking frenzy, followed up by an intense militaristic march, ending with such annihilating terror it
perfectly epitomizes the full spirit of bone crushing techno.
WARNING: BEWARE OF THE PHANTOM, IF NOT BANISHED IT WILL SEND YOU BERSERK
