. Collectively, the musicians have been at the forefront of new music-making, amid variable flavors and shades, bordering on the avant-garde, jazz-rock, electronica and other intertwining genres. Here, the WD-41+2 unit expands upon applications and concepts, first evidenced on the 2009 effort.

But the differentiator here pertains to the musicians' portrayal of a portentous storyline, which could serve as the soundtrack to an avant, sci-fi video game.

-like blasts, to coincide with Laczko's harrowing lines, the program offers a foreboding outlook composed of oscillating ventures into a vast neural network.

The band spawns a whirlwind abyss of fractured themes and scowling accents. On "AA-5," Laczko's stilted notes lead the charge atop a slowly climactic series of events, contrasted by loops, and the guitarist's deft single note attack, while Deane and Amendola execute unearthly underpinnings, often laying out a broad spectrum of ethereal treatments.

Each track bleeds into the next, mainly from a contextual standpoint. It's a program steeped within a deviant, ambient-electronica factor. Oteri and associates research diametrically-opposed angles and a swirling architecture, extending similar frameworks, rendered by others, into a herculean endeavor, offset by a take-no-prisoners approach. They accelerate the roads previously traversed into a frenetic cosmic experience on Temi Per Cinema.

Track Listing: U-5; Bb-2; Q-1; W-1a; W-5; W-1a; t-6; Aa-5; Q-2; Aa-4.
