Crystal Castles - "III"

2012 release, the third album from the Canadian Electronic/Experimental band, the first of their albums to be produced entirely by band member Ethan Kath. ''We wanted the album to sound like a completely different and new experience'' says Ethan. ''We'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea,'' By ditching their old synthesizers and keyboards used on I and II, Ethan enforced a 'strictly no computers' rule in the studio and began recording everything directly to tape. Together the Canadian duo has conjured up a collection of songs that are as raw as they are well rounded. As `(Ill)' unfolds, each track will take you to greater heights and equal lows, as you enter the sometimes plagued and often polarized world that is Crystal Castles. Recorded mostly in Warsaw and Berlin, the album also boasts the haunting and euphoric 5-minute mind-bender 'Plague' that quickly caused a cyber-storm amongst fans and media when the band unveiled it via their soundcloud page this summer.
