Metropolis is a project from Dutch producer Nick Lapien, who is best known for his involvement in the Artefakt project that enjoyed recognition with a recent release on Delsin. On the evidence of ‘Unify’, maybe it’s time that Metropolis shared the limelight. Both ‘Uberall Polizei, Nirgendwo Gerechtigkeit’ and ‘Kriegdienstverweigerer' are grungy, ebm-influenced tracks, littered with cold bleeps, slurred vocals and discordant riffs. Only on the title track does Lapien hint at the Detroit techno influences that characterise Artefakt, but even here the discordant swagger of Metropolis rumbles magnificently throughout.
