Black-country overlord Justin K Broadrick (Jesu, Godflesh) blesses Regis' Downwards fiefdom with two tracks and a tightly sprung rework by Surgeon. Surgeon's remix of the title tune ranks among his best in many years. Trace elements of the original are extruded through swerving techno chassis recalling BMB and CUB classics, but streaked with sirens and vamped by a marching brass refrain that's just spoiling for war. The release marks a long overdue overlap between Downwards' and Broadrick's interrelated industrial, noise and techno circles.
