Following up on their acclaimed 2016 album, “Pitch Black Mirror”, the Canadian duo return to Sonic Groove with four new tracks based on their improvised live performances. These are dance floor tracks with an experimental edge and a pervasive sense of dread, emphasizing the project’s decades-long commitment to fusing techno and industrial music in unique ways. Elements of EBM, electro, and rhythmic noise blur together as serpentine basslines twist through shifting layers of percussion and modular dronescapes morph into agonized voices of suffering and defiance. Another powerful weapon from the Orphx arsenal. - Sonic Groove

To listen to Orphx is to listen to masters of their craft at work. They don’t just cross sounds and genres, they mix together different moods and directions, effortlessly and seamlessly... There is a spontaneity, a constant flow of ideas, in which everything finds its spot and place. If you call yourself a fan of industrial-tinged techno music, you can’t miss this release. - Flux

Sophisticated songs revealing elements of IDM, industrial music, and even EBM are carried by solid dance beats. Orphx is one of those bands which even throughout the years never stops to improve their sound. They’re truly sound wizards reflecting an avant-garde vision of industrial-techno music. 9/10 - Side-Line

A sonorous penance that perfectly balances high quality functional production with cryptic and reflective content. - Collapsed Orgon
