"Praise The Fallen" starts elusively slow with a spoken word piece that builds to blistering dancefloor electronics that are the architecture of this album. Offering a salute to Swedish Electro masters Covenant, VNV Nation design powerful club tracks with simple basslines, deft drums, short programmed loops and crisp vocals. Unlike their Northern European counterparts, however, VNV Nation are vying for a hostile takeover of dance clubs across the world. The thick bass drums relentlessly pummel all opponents into submission and the punctuated synthesizers over run all resistance. VNV Nation raise their marker on the flagpole of the international Electro scene and will take on all contenders. One warning, if you cannot handle the occasional Synth-Pop influence, avoid VNV Nation, as they love to throw in a few rogue musical elements to distract the opposition.
