Soul Is in the Software" has less of the pleasant Overlords vibe
that surrounded "Serenity Is the Devil". Aside from that rather
disappointing fact, things have remained basically the same for the Norwegian
combo. Icon of Coil still moves through familiar future pop territory
with mandatory fat base drums, driving rhythms and energetic techno melodies.
Apoptygma Berzerk is still what they remind me most of, but "The
Soul Is in the Software" has more visible classic EBM roots and less
of a dance techno edge.
