The Electric Groove Temple — Sequence Me
(Trichone TCNCD004, 1996, CD)

by Peter Thelen, Published 1997-02-01

Sequence Me Cover art

We're in heavy techno country here — intensely rhythmic, and like the Ozrics, EGT use real drums to augment the electronic based dance-beats, as well as additional percussive elements (congas, hand drums). No clues to the lineup are given in the scant booklet notes, but more than likely this is a five-piece of guitars, synths, bass, drums, and percussion. No vocals, with the exception of some spoken samples here and there. There is great guitar work everywhere, both in a textural / rhythmic sense and in some impressive soloing, as well as some great guitar driven effects; more than anything it's the guitar that makes this project as interesting as it is and takes it out of the standard techno realm. Tracks vary in length, some far longer than they need to be, but overall these guys are doing it right. Anyone who thought Strangeitude was the Ozrics' finest moment should find plenty in EGT's sound to hold the interest.
