Geometrik presents a new reissue (2009) of a classic album by influential Spanish industrial cult band Esplendor Geométrico. Veritatis Splendor (1994) is the first Esplendor Geométrico album recorded in the '90s, after their split release with Most Significant Beat. It sets the beginning of a new period for the band, where the incorporation of digital technology, synths and rhythms can be felt. Veritatis keeps the typical characteristics of E.G.'s sound but with greater production and complex rhythmic structures, achieving an original and personal fusion of classic industrial sound with elements of tribal music and avant-garde techno. It has a bigger variety of registers than in their newer repertoire, ranging from the hypnotic "La Radio Al Día," the classical sound of "Poder De Ruptura," and the bright dance rhythms of "Ensayo De Compresión," or "La Meta Del Servicio," an exciting sequence that is really surprising, including some tribal screams. Another noticeable element is the constant presence of radiophonic emissions throughout the entire album. This classic of the genre has been sold out since 1995 and is now finally available again, remastered and with different artwork.
