5 stars And I quote: "Do not listen to 'Surrender' while driving a tank."

There are no words.

Another knockout by the maybe-Norwegians behind "Transmission", Metatag have decided to build off of the dark martial wave of "Transmission"'s "Peach Trees" to make a whole album of dour ethereals. They don't stick to the Bauhaus X Laibach formula most of the time, but this is album is distinctly new-wave-meets-dark-wave-meets-TD. It's like a lost artifact drummed up in '83 after listening to "In The Flat Field" and "My Life In The Bush of Ghosts" while on something mind-altering, and left forgotten in some record company's crawlspace after being handily rejected by a few execs who had the bejezzus scared right out of them by it. Yes, Metatag's albums are cassette only. This is as excellent and ethereal as ever for the duo, and here many of you never thought angelic darkness was possible. Highly recommended, a unique electronic document.
