Boomkat Product Review:
Heart-swelling and matured electronic pop from one of Germany's most endearing modern songsmiths. Four years since his acclaimed 'Walls' LP and the widely loved Moderat album with his MDSLKTR pals, Sascha Ring comfortably fulfils his status as a foremost composer of majestic electronic pop with 'The Devil's Walk', consolidating myriad electronic styles under the Apparat moniker with an unshakable emotive sincerity and elegantly classical yet fresh production style. We can largely attribute that sense of classicism to the prevalence of strings on many tracks, from the opening flush of mandolin on 'Sweet Unrest' to the pomping orchestrations of the Göteborg/Berlin String Theory on 'Escape', or the tensely rising crests of 'A Bang In The Void', but they're always considerately balanced against exquisite electronic backdrops, or vice versa, keeping the vibe timeless yet modern. At times you could be forgiven for thinking you're in the midst of a Radiohead side-project, especially with the quivering restraint of his vocals on 'Your House Is My World', or again at the towering highlight of 'A Bang In The Void'. But then again, he's somewhere between David Sylvian and Morten Harket on the stirring 'Song Of Los' and 'Ash/Black Veil', so essentially he's just got that sense of grand pop melancholy down to a fine art, and the collaboration with gothic Austrian songwriter Soap & Skin is little short of inspired. Recommended.
