Less than two minutes long, the first minute is very 00s Europop with a twinkling piano intro, but suddenly bursts into the most unpredictably filthy death metal. Moreover, they truly upped their game in “We Got the Moves” by combining a rave-themed breakdown with a conventional one. In this track, the amalgamation of genres supports one another without one dominating the other or making the track feel overwhelmingly messy. What was once a band buttressed solely by the dim star of 2010s electro-metalcore is now a significant force, and as is probably expected, the timeline of how we got to this point isn’t the clearest. It’s a happy, psychedelic ride that occasionally turns into a nightmare, like the beautiful chaos that is “Mindreader,” arguably the heaviest track on the album.

The band changed the word 'Eskimo' to 'Electric' because it can be seen as a derogatory name for Inuit and Yupik people of the Arctic. Putting a focus on the punky riffs, it opens with Nico’s clean vocal section drawing us in with his alluring performance and evolves into an unexpected love song about falling for a girl whose friends think you’re a, well, read the song title again! Still, no matter how chaotic things get, every single song eventually becomes an anthem to sing along to, be it in your car, on a boat, or during the looming zombie apocalypse.Yes, the critic hat unfortunately does have to come back on and the party has to stall, because for as entertaining as Tekkno is, that’s not enough to fully slide it outside the realm of issues that hold it back from much more. A new name, a renewed sense of style, and clearly they were having as much fun as possible when making this.

You don’t get lines like “Shaky, shaky, sweaty, sweaty / You make my spaghetti ready” from Tekkno Train by any band under the illusion of playing it straight. As good as the vocals are on this track, there would be a danger if they went down this route in future, they would become a Linkin Park tribute act.Unfortunately, compared to what they’ve discovered in the rest of Tekkno, these are the weaker points. Metalcore (or metallic hardcore) is a fusion music genre that combines elements of extreme metal and hardcore punk. At times, it takes you right back to the anthemic pop days of the late 2000s/early 2010s, and at other times it pulls you into the modern day with its djent-splattered metalcore. And on their sixth effort ‘Tekkno’, it’s no different – as they once again blend brutal metalcore riffs with bouncy EDM synths and rhythms.
