Umberto & Antoni Maiovvi have teamed up once again for a release under the name “Law Unit” as part of the “Death Waltz Originals” series.
There’s been word about this for some time but we’re finally getting the details. A press release from earlier in the year stated thatÂ UmbertoÂ and Maiovvi’s visionÂ for the release was to move from “the retro-futurist works of their individual solo releases to explore a world of early industrial and experimental music.”Â However, this album comprises of someÂ re-edited material from their first album, “The Hook and Pull Gang,” so it’s not completely new.
The music itself can be a bit eerie at times. I’m getting aÂ retro-futuristic meets horror flick feel with its variousÂ dissonant synths, hard beats and ambient pads.
The LP isÂ available in the limited “Pink Pearl” edition as well as the standard orange. You can listen to a few tracks here.
Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to bring you an all-new aural experience via the latest installment of the Death Waltz Originals imprint. LAW UNIT is a brand new creation by maestros Umberto (PROPHECY OF THE BLACK WIDOW, NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND SCREAMS) and Antoni Maiovvi (YELLOW, DELTA CITY), an original concept that in the composers' own words âmoves past the retro-futurist works of their individual solo releases to explore a world of early industrial and experimental music." The resulting album is made up of ten dangerously cool and evocative cuts, the kind of tracks that put you in the mood for LA circa 2019, or the Detroit of 1987.
LAW UNIT feels like exactly that; to paraphrase a certain TV show, âa lone crusader in a dangerous worldâ. Like a one-car journey into the night of Hades, dissonant synths and intent percussion surrounding you at every move. The cacophony at times is terrifying, the apocalyptic feeling echoing through distant electric guitars and sampled vocal chorus, following you, hunting you. Or are you hunting them? But what makes this record doubly worth your time are the snatches of beauty, of wonder, hidden within Reflective synth lines, guitar, sometimes ambient, other times in the foreground. LAW UNIT is a masterpiece of hard beats and harder synths that you'll want on your stereo when you're making that next trip into the dark unknown.
