Produced by Young Gods member Franz Treichler, Excess & Overdrive, the third album of Treponem Pal, remains the masterpiece of the band. After the 1992 Loolapalooza tour with Ministry, and Aggravation in 1991, the compositions of the band have now come to maturity. Mixing industrial, hardcore, and tribal music, Excess & Overdrive is a dark and powerful album. The vocal parts, deep and low, of Marco Neves may here be repellent at first for the listener not used to hardcore music, but the loud, intelligent guitars and the great quality of the songs will appeal to any industrial music lover.
