Using only analog equipment, Radio Massacre International forges huge atmospheres and a sound that fits perfectly in the new-millennium digital domain. While their sound recalls the Berlin school of the early '70s, it also stands proudly with modern digital e-music. Republic contains three long-form compositions that cross all borders. Radio Massacre International is able to perform deep minimalism, experimental sci-fi passages, and dark ambient atmospheres. They compliment and surround those elements with the dense sequences expected of the Berlin school. This is excellent evolutionary Berlin school electronica. Radio Massacre International is on a plane with Ron Boots, Ian Boddy, Klaus Schulze, and Paul Ellis.
