[deleted] This is the second full-length release from Cologne-based techno duo Sven Zalac and Matthias Freund. Codec & Flexor have been ranked among the absolute outsiders and infant terribles of the dark electronic/new wave-pop underground for a long time now. Killermachine is replete with tech-y beats, dirty guitar riffs crowned with spherical vocals and superior hooks. With this second album they take a more pop-like line, though strictly continuing their merging of indie rock and dark techno/electro. Highlights among others are tracks like "I'll Be Gone," harkening to mainstream references such as Depeche Mode and Northern Lite, amongst others. "Surface Of Sorrow," dedicated to the deceased Christian Morgenstern, impresses with black, atmospheric pattern.
