AllMusic Review by

If Genghis Tron’s frayed and sparking mix of aggressive mathcore and electronics wasn’t innovative enough, they’ve embarked on an ambitious multi-label remix project following their first album, BOARD UP THE HOUSE. The fifth and final edition is a limited vinyl pressing on Crucial Blast Records. The three tracks on display come wrapped in layers of distortion at once atmospheric and damaging. Tim Hecker’s take on the title track is a slow thaw of icy electronic texture, and the Nadja remix of “I Won’t Come Back Alive” stretches it out to fifteen minutes of buried drum hits and chilly synths.
