The album opens with something between an intro and a song. In that aspect, the title track 'Human Rage' is an excellent start for this album. You can feel the fury building up while you're slowly being lured into the world of Ambassador21. 'Fear Level Red' follows and brings in all the elements that make this act what it is. With hardcore beats, fierce vocals and a murderous tempo, this song rages on, soon followed by some more. 'Revelation' is the single, which might indeed be the most radio-friendly song on this album.
Well, the sound from Ambassador21 is quite far away from being radio friendly, but they do seem to follow recent directions and novelties in the electronic scene. 'Metal' is another harsh, industrial dance track that seems to incorporate some modern sounds. 'Cannibals' starts out as an electronic version of 'Eye Of The Tiger' before turning into a Skinny Puppy meets Morbid Angel's 'Illud Divinum Insanus', something like that. 'Scream Your Name', one of my favorites, and 'Before We Die' even come up with some dubstep beats. Not a lot, but some.
That being said, yes, there are quite a few Thunderdome-style hardcore beats to be found here, but somehow I think even some of the most hardcore gabbers will fear the dark noise that Ambassador21 bark out. The atmosphere and tempo of the album are simply asphyxiating, They never let your rest, never let you lick your wounds but instead maintain the immense beatdown track after track. 'Do Or Die Time' and 'Empire Must Fall' might be the most "metal" tracks. I really dig the guitars in these, like Slayer meets Neophyte, maybe.
The album closes with 'Black Dot', another smasher which ends in pure noise. And if that isn't enough electronic brutality for you, you can always get the limited 2CD version with remixes by Nullvektor, Hydrone, Monkey 13 and some reworked versions of ep-tracks. Who I recommend this to? Well, first of course to all Ambassador21 fans out there. They can blindly trust this act to deliver the goods. Second, I'd like everyone who thinks electronic music can't be heavy, intense or brutal to check this out, you might be surprised...if you survive...
