Over the last decade, few have amassed as fine a catalogue of revivalist Italo-disco, EBM and synth-wave cuts than The Revolving Eyes. It’s because of this that each new release from the Belgian duo is worth a listen. Predictably, there’s plenty of dark and clandestine fodder to be found on The Nature And The Metal, their first release of 2018. Highlights include the foreboding horror chords, psychedelic acid lines and metronomic throb of “Beautiful Sadness”, the rising orchestration and clicking drum machine hits of “Monotrance” and the ragged and distorted, acid-EBM fusion of the titanium-clad “Ritual Serenade”. The title track, which closes the EP, is alo sublime: a clanking industrial workout smothered in far-sighted, futurist techno synths.
