This LP features seven songs from the Editor's Violence album, originally produced and more recently mixed and finished by Blanck Mass. It includes the unreleased track "Barricades" from the Violence sessions, which is a full Blanck Mass production mixed by Alan Moulder as per the rest of the original album.
These synth-based doppelgangers amplify the digital dread and anxiety, paring away much of the guitar groove and live drumming from the originals while slathering atmospheric layers over it all. The original post-chorus squall on 'Hallelujah (So Low)' transforms into a bright exploration that frosts down-tuned guitars with icy synths, resulting in a blend that might be the offspring of Bastille and Nine Inch Nails. Other highlights include a fuzzed-out take on 'Nothingness' that echoes a Radiohead B-side and a towering reimagining of 'Counting Spooks' that is split between an epic opening half that descends into electro-pop bliss reminiscent of a Depeche Mode remix... As a sonic complement to Violence, Blanck Mass Sessions offers a fresh perspective on one of Editors' finest albums to date.
