Project Pitchfork was to the 90s what bands like Front 242, The Klinik and other Nitzer Ebb were to the 80s! The German band set up and leaded by Peter Spilles became one of the absolute master bands from the 90s. The band went on, but didn’t always convince me the same way. But just at the point where I thought they were at a point of no return, they released the album “Dream, Tiresias!”. Project Pitchfork there confirmed all their creativity and maturity and now they’re already back with a new splendid opus. “Continuum Ride” is an album revealing Project Pitchfork in good form! The band sounds like the perfect successor to “Dream, Tiresias!”. What I especially appreciate in their sound is the very unique style. Project Pitchfork can’t be compared to any other band while it’s quite difficult to put their music in a known and established layer. The sounds remains however electronic revealing dark influences next to wave elements and other gothic flavors. “Continuum Ride” can’t be seen as an innovative release rather than a typical ‘Pitchfork’-CD with numerous carrying and efficient songs. The easy recognizable rhythmic, the cool sound research and the cavernous vocals of Peter Spilles with intelligent and sometimes poignant lyrics remain the main ingredients of this new release. Besides these familiar receipt I also noticed sublime string parts. Just pay some attention for the strings on “Way Of The World” and the quite Gary Numan strings on “Supersonic Snakebite” to realize the strength emerging from the synth lines. “Supersonic Snakebite” really sounds like carried through the strength emerging from its synth line. This is a great piece of work that stands for the complete CD. From the more darker-pop sounding “Stacked Visions” to the more catchy “Dead Cities” to the quieter and dreamy “Continuum” to the refined “Full Contact” Peter Spilles and his acolytes confirm all their potential. The song “Ghosts Of The Past” is already another experience, where they walk on the soundtrack path. This instrumental piece could be a possible wink to the past and especially to their possible fascination for The Klinik. The song doesn’t sound Klinik-al at all, but contains samplings that were used on the famous “Sabotage”-LP from The Klinik. There’s definitely a lot to experience on the new ‘Pitchfork’, which appears to be one more production that will possibly go down in their history!
