Australian 4-piece cyberpunk act SIRUS are back with a breathtaking new album that exceeds all expectation and almost defies description. In their homeland, SIRUS have opened for bands like Combichrist, Hocico, Grendel, Aesthetic Perfection and God Module – and this year made their European live debut to a rapturous reception at Resistanz Festival UK. An energetic fusion of contemporary electronic styles, “Satellite Empire” is a superbly futuristic-sounding production. From the opening salvo of “Surveillance State” and “Full Scale Revolt”, through to the mournfully beautiful closing ambience of “Surfacing”, this is an album that truly defies simplistic categorization, and which redefines the boundaries of what “industrial” can aspire to be in this 21st century.
An intricate album that segues smoothly and effortlessly between styles and tempos, some-times even within many of the songs themselves, without ever missing a beat. There are not many acts out there capable of reaching this level of ingenuity and production quality, let alone sustaining it over the course of an entire album of epic song-structures averaging 6 mins. Each – but SIRUS have come of age, and their empire is at hand!
