Absolutely essential, Panic Lift's newest album is a monumental collection of songs, nearly any of which could stand on their own as singles. With the concussive force of a runaway supercollider, Panic Lift exploded onto the industrial music scene in 2006. Word of mouth and their live shows across the Northeast and California saw the self released EP quickly sell out, leaving fans waiting in anticipation of a full-length album. And now NoiTekk Records is pleased to release "Witness to Our Collapse", a masterpiece of storming beats, memory-searing hooks and flawless production.Equally destructive on the dance floor as it is with more reflective listening, this album is a testament to the ideology that industrial music can be both agressive and epic, as well as carefully crafted. The song writing transcends the repetitive, predictable cliches of current cookie-cutter releases in the hard electronic scene and proves that the future of industrial music is here, and it's going to kick you right in the face. Pounding, chestplate-stomping beats and pulsing throbs of bass send convulsions through your body, while the razorwire synth lines and emotive fragments of piano and guitar pull a wicked smile across your face. Featuring more than a couple of surprises, this is not an album to be missed, and will set the bar irretrievably high for other acts in the EBM and electro-industrial scene.
