Project Pitchfork – Quantum Mechanics (CD – Trisol)

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

A few months after the excellent “First Antholgy”-DCD Project Pitchfork launches their newest opus (which must be the 15th album in history and I’m not counting in the ‘best of’ and ‘live’-releases). “Quantum Mechanics” appears twenty years after the “Dhyani”-CD. I think it’s quite interesting to analyze the evolution between both releases. The global production definitely became more professional, mature and especially showing a refined sound, but you can still recognize the typical dark touch with bombastic parts and the alluring vocals of Peter Spilles. After having released a new album of Santa Hates You, Peter Spilles seems to be in a very prolific year.
“Quantum Mechanics” sounds like a rather typical Project Pitchfork-CD assembling all ingredients the band has used throughout the years to gain their status of being a leading electro band. The new songs are in a similar vein of their previous two albums (cf. “Dream, Tiresias!” and “Continuum Ride”). The songs feature dark, carrying melodies, bombastic rhythms merged with danceable tempos, wafting atmospheres ending into pure reverie and on top of the music the still efficient timbre of voice of Peter Spilles. The lyrical content is once more dealing with social items, but also about love and hope, “Radical Business” being a quite cynical reflection and “Run For Cover” with a poetic approach expressing anger.
Musically, I was seduced by several songs, but I especially recommend “Freeze In Silence”, “Lament”, “Run For Cover” for the great choirs on top, “Mute Spectators” and “Splice”.
Project Pitchfork did a good job, but I can’t get away from the idea that Peter Spilles switched on the automatic pilot to achieve this album. If “Dream, Tiresias!” and “Continuum Ride” were a bit like a look back to the past and the original sound of Project Pitchfork reinforced by a touch of modernism, “Quantum Mechanics” is definitely the least surprising and innovative album we can add to this list. On the other hand I got the feeling that “Quantum Mechanics” might be the most intimate album from the past few years. The music moves more into parts of reverie, accentuating some emotional content although it never becomes really poignant.
Don’t get me wrong, this is an excellent album, but not the most surprising one in the history of the band.
