since the beginning, a distinguishing feature of iscoloscope has been the addition of intelligent and unexpected details to the basic ingredients that industrial music is known for. this, the project's seventh full length album 'false vacuum' raises the already high bar yann faussurier set on his previous releases in a most astounding way. within these nine tracks iszoloscope is establishing ties between a myriad of different styles ranging from solemn orchestral constructs and rich dark ambient soundscapes to sequenced hard-hitting technoid industrial rhythms and fast remorseless drum and bass beat structures. mighty pulsating sub basses and loony melodic curls, hypnotic percussion and carefully placed bursts of electronics evoke highly energetic atmospheres of power and tension that resonate inside the listener's mind. accompanied by many personal changes it took iszolocsope nearly four years to complete this opus, and after taking a deep view everyone will agree it was worth waiting for. highly recommended.
