Converter is best described as an icon of the label ant-zen, which promotes itself as industrial music, chilling ambient, technoid rhythms and power electronics. Indeed, Scott Sturgis is one of the few highly talented electronic music producers able to mix all these styles on a single record and, even better, on a single track. If you have any doubts, listen to the track named Denogginizer, which is actually one of the very first noisy tracks I have ever heard and that got me hooked since. Converter per se is a universe of stunning atmospheres, sonorities and rhythms; Shock Front is one of its masterpieces, the most powerful in my view. It may sound weird or funny, but Converter truly means its name; listening to tracks like Cannibals, Sacrifice, Memory-Trace and Deadman may change the way you perceive subtle daily ordinary sounds like refrigerators, air traps, mechanical stairways, etc. (I’m still sane:) I would also mention the restricted use of short vocals that is just deadly efficient on some tracks: ‘All obsessed with the taste of flesh’ …
