|1.||Ancient Methods - "Bunkerterror" (5:37)|
A gnarly double header up next on Dominick Fernow's notorious Hospital Productions, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary. He dons the reverb Vatican Shadow moniker for his take on "Bunkerterror" a blistering example of 'war techno' if we've ever heard it. This steely and pitch black epic reachers near tribal moments with spitfire military rhythm arrangements. On the flip, Ancient Methods provides his take on the track and other than the occasional metal strikes, his version is less industrial and more hypnotic style techno with its grumbling monosynth bass and heads down/strobe-lit feel throughout. These two cuts were said to be inspired by their occasional back-to-back live and-DJ sets, with Fernow providing the "New York" side (naturally) and Michael Wollenhaupt (Ancient Methods) obviously turning in the "Berlin" side. Dangerous gear right here, handle with extreme caution!
