After the great 2CD remix album "2:40 AM," Tommy T and his project Diverje are back with another brand new 2CD album entitled "Amphibian." All the usual traits of hard and sometimes mellow electro sounds are present as well as some new influences. The new CD revolves around the theme of amphibians with interesting use of frog samples and manipulated sounds. "Amphibian" also features some creative drum programming (just listen to the hard hitting tracks "Broken" and "Amphibian"!). The drum programming on "Amphibian" is just one of the many evolutionary steps shown by Diverje on this new album.
Disc 2 features remixes from Aghast View, The Mercy Cage, E.S.R., Bio-Mechanical Degeneration, Auspex, Data Rapa, Fr/action, Tecnoman S.F., Babel-17, System Syn and Crocodile Shop.
"Amphibian" is a very unique and solid album full of interesting percussion and electronics. Recommend to fans of previous works.

The forth studio album AMPHIBIAN from Alburqueque’s Industrial all-stars DIVERJE should easily satisfy all DIVERJE fans. AMPHIBIAN is definitely more synth and beat driven than effects. I think the progression of DIVERJE releases has definitely continued throughout each album as the band matures gracefully. This could also be a result of the numerous collaborators that core musicians Tommy T Rapisardi, Mike Whitten, and Cyboburnt bring in on each release.
The somber melodies and ethereal chord progressions make the concept album AMPHIBIAN tangible to all electronic fans. The proof begins in the melodic album opener "Broken" and continues right through the last track "PolliWog". Even the more aggressive in-your-face tracks are melody-driven rather than saturated with samples and effects. The title-track "Amphibian" demonstrates the most fascinating vocal work and vocal layering I have ever heard.
Tracks such as "In2The Trap" and "Red-Eyed" display classic Industrial/EBM menace with WUMPSCUT-esque rhythms while sticking to the melancholy melody and harmonies of the remainder of the album. Tracks such as "Images" and "Final Conflict" reveal the darker painful visions of DIVERJE, while tracks like "You Suck", "Siliconed", and "StepbackUP" demonstrate the hatred that genuine worthy folk have to tolerate everyday.
Similar to the previous studio album ON SKIN, AMPHIBIAN is an excellent display of diversity, skill, and experience. DIVERJE, as well as other DSBP labelmates, have really pushing the envelope of sound and redefining what the Electronic standards should be.
