This is apparently a film soundtrack 'in collaboration with' SIGILLUM S. As such it does indeed have a certain dramatic feel to it, although the instrumentals themselves are often constructed electronica rhythmic pieces, with the occasional nod in the direction of CARPENTER (of course) and the "Terminator" themes. But to say that they take these as a direct influence, or lack sufficient individuality and inspiration is wholy unfair. And besides which there's a lot of noise-works here which seem totally at odds with such an influence.
Being a film soundtrack, you find that one or two central themes are repeated throughout, with cold, mechanical structure countered by warm deep bass. And the noise pieces, you kinda guess, must be incidental music.

Which gives the whole an uneven feeling. Not a bad thing. And having the central theme repeated in various different ways makes you feel this is an extended single featuring various remixes, rather than an album as such.

But the music is good. The rhythms are dramatic and darkly threatening, and the noise pieces crash and batter around like you've walked out of your sitting room and into an all out war.
