"The return of Arcane Device! What other, better way to start 2015? A new release, a double one at that and even concerts a few weeks back. Most likely for the first time in close to twenty-odd years. Back in Vital 36, the supplement (and yes, boys and girls, we are talking here the paper version, from July 1994!), David Lee Myers announced the end of Arcane Device because it 'can no longer believe that the art we know is capable of leading toward greater knowledge, truth, or good, however one may define these terms'. There have been very few releases since then with his (real) name attached, but as far as I can remember not as Arcane Device. Which was a pity since I really loved his feedback music: a bunch of effects (delay, reverb) coupled together and playing this great, vibrant, electronic music.

Later on Myers re-issued some of his older works and Monochrome Vision (obviously! the true archivists of the late 80s industrial scene) released a double CD, which spanned 1987 to 2007 - so perhaps Myers continued to create music (see Vital Weekly 616) as such. Here he has two CDRs; one contains pieces created with 'the Noise Matrix' and the other with 'the Mini Modular with looper'. The latter has four long pieces and has overall a more ambient sound. Relatively simple, long sustaining sound waves intertwine each other and make some very nice yet intense electronic pieces of music. This is not the kind of ambient that is along the lines of say Brian Eno or something cosmic, but more the kind of forceful drone music that sticks right in the middle of your brain; providing of course you play this with a considerable volume, which I actually recommend. Perhaps only then the total immersive sound will be present. This is a great disc!

The other one has fourteen pieces and lasts also seventy-two minutes (!) and is occasionally noisier and chaotic, but here too we have similar processed feedback music, like in the old days. Here Arcane Device sounds like his own old days, electronic, forceful, harsh drones and a bit of industrial, although perhaps a bit less than in the old days. The balance here is more considered: Myers works it out in various directions and considers how to make a varied album. A bit of rhythm here, a bit of noise there, a combination of both somewhere else. I agree: it's a lot of music to digest at once, but it's a great comeback album. Hopefully to stay for some time."Frans De Waard, Vital Weekly
