One release we've been waiting for to start the year is the new EP from Berlin-based, Russian artist Alexey Volkov. Cold Blooded Genius is the second installment on LINDA RECORDS and this young imprint continues to impress with its great selection of artists and thoughtful presentation. The latest vinyl offering is a beautiful translucent red 10'' with an lust-worthy accompanying poster by photographer Jan Zimmerman. The music doesn't disappoint either, with three tracks of raw, rhythmic electronics that shatters the boundaries between techno, industrial, EBM and more.
The record starts perfectly with the title track on Side A building you up with its heart pounding percussion and filthy, mechanical grind. Side B begins with the tension filled, warehouse destroyer "Unfriendly Nation" and "Curtains of Flesh" closes out the release with a massive introduction that bleeds into an infectious techno assault. To help launch the release, The Brvtalist is pleased to premiere the video for the title track, "Cold Blooded Genius".
