Hellbent must be the Revolting Cocks bastard child of the nineties. Someone has assembled all of the influential coldwave musical talent of the past five years into one concrete autonomous unit. With a careful listen and a trained ear one can pick out each section of the album and who was responsible for each component. The final commodity is a exquisitely tuned finite element state machine which hums along with a groove all of it's own. The best way to get a solid grip on this album is to grab three turntables, slap Chemlab, 16 Volt and Haloblack on the pads and try and mix the three together. It can't be done you say? I think that Hellbent is a living proof that it can be accomplished with only minimal of effort. My only regret is that this album is exceedingly short and hence doesn't seem to completely satisfy the palette. I suppose one shouldn't be overly picky when concerned with side projects since the majority of Hellbent's musical cousins have been aborted excuses for maxi singles (Acid Horse, 1000 Homo DJ's, etc). So, enjoy the music in the small easy to swallow doses as to avoid any addicting qualities.
