Radio Massacre International - The God of Electricity. 1994 England
CD issue: 2000 Centaur
In effect, The God of Electricity is Radio Massacre International's earliest album, though not released until 2000. The album was recorded throughout the summer of 1994, and later pieced together, which is a bit different than the normal RMI protocol. It's a darker work, with synthesizers dominating the proceedings even more so than later in their career. The sequencers remind us once again that Baumann-era Tangerine Dream is the blueprint for all future RMI recordings. The God of Electricity is yet another excellent album from RMI, though I wouldn't recommend it as a starting place (better to try their actual debut Frozen North to get the true Radio Massacre International experience).
