Godheads have changed their style a bit on this album. They use to sound like LeŠther Strip with guitars and now I feel that they sound a lot like Christ Analogue. The band has matured slightly with their sound and structure, but still not as much as I would have liked. The electronics are a bit hidden behind the clean singing vocals, heavy guitar and harsh drum beats giving this album more of a commercial electro rock sound. Every song found here is tight, polished and catchy. There are no slow songs, instrumentals, remixes, or filler taking up space. This is hard rocking angry and aggressive music that plays at a fast pace. It's a bit straight forward for the most part. There isn't a lot of experimenting going on here. Some songs do mix a little more variety in them with slower melodic parts that turn into pure rage, but it's still all very structured. This is basically alternative rock or metal music with electronics. If you're a fan of cyber-core bands such as Christ Analogue, Hate Dept., 16 Volt, and Unit:187 then this album is a must for you. It's nothing new or different, but it's still good and does rock.

This is a German cyber-core band. There are similar styles to Bionic, Devoid, LeŠther Strip, Oomph!, Second Skin, and Steril found in this music. The vocals are slightly distorted and have an apparent German accent. The guitars are heavy, and the electronics are very noticeable. There is nothing new presented here, but it's still done very well. This is a very solid album. Most of the songs sound fairly similar to each other, but a couple do stand out. The best songs to be found here are "Eternal Youth" and "The Promised Land". They are fast paced, aggressive, and just flat out rock. My main complaint with this album is that there are only eight songs. I could have handled more. But these are great, and make this album a must for fans of German industrial music.
