Boomkat Product Review:
Akkord erekt two imposing, concrète-sculpted techno abstractions on a furtive return to Houndstooth with 'Obelisk'.
'Monolith' sounds like a long-distance soundclash between rival pagan systems in the peak district, each limited to a palette of monotone bass, ghostly nyabinghi and grey drizzle. Followers of The Haxan Cloak or Demdike Stare will be in their element here.
By the contrast of light and tone, 'Megalith' sounds like the dawn after the ritual, waking up to a chorus of birdcalls and flinty 'ardcore jungle sparks under a pallor of drifting smoke and fog surrounded by rave zombies.
