There is something inescapable about Excepter's KA; something that is both hypnotic yet frightening; something that pulls at the deepest recesses of the mind and challenges them into a duel with their own fears. The often trance-inducing music thrives upon steady, manipulative and unconventional per.
There is something inescapable about Excepter's KA; something that is both hypnotic yet frightening; something that pulls at the deepest recesses of the mind and challenges them into a duel with their own fears. The often trance-inducing music thrives upon steady, manipulative and unconventional percussive elements that pulsate in and out with the music, slowly pounding their way into the mind and overtaking it. The vocals are no less eerie, combining layers of incomprehensible chanting alongside odd noises or female half-singing. They can prod intrusively upon one at first, seeming strange and foreign, but their power and placement is so effective, they eventually become an essential piece of the whole mass, enticing the listener to join in the edge-of-conscious atmosphere which pervades the disc. For all these reasons, KA is the dark side of electronic experimentation while at the same time maintaining an organic feel due to not only the vocals but the false sense of simplicity that reigns at certain moments. The fact that it becomes so appealing makes this all the more impressive.
