This track collection was remastered exclusively from our original tapes in Includes six tracks presented in two different versions: the original mix, and a new "V2" or, "version two" mix. Additionally, there are three extended versions which have also been revisited. The "version 2" mixes are drawn from the same original multitrack tapes as the originals, but with a vastly improved presentation of the vocals. These mixes do not include any newly recorded overdubs, or any treatments that would not have been available when the original tracks were laid down.
They are true to the source material, but they project, for the very first time, the full intensity of the recordings. By the early 90s, there were countless industrial, and industrial-inspired, bands on the scene. Many, if not most, shared a sameness in the way their vocals were recorded and mixed. Just a couple of years earlier, that overdriven aesthetic still seemed exciting especially when it was delivered by the bands that helped pioneer the technique.
When we entered the studio in the fall of that year, we aimed to create an album that was more distinctive than our first. The material that DHI (Death And Horror Inc)* - Bitter Alloys / Pressures Collide brought in had been painstakingly assembled in advance, and we felt that our latest ideas instrumentation, arrangements, lyrics, and sound-sculpting demonstrated a significant progression from our debut.
The intention was to create less of a genre release, and more of a DHI album. But there was a question hanging over the sessions that would not be easily solved: If we — an industrial band — were not going to bury our vocals under a layer of distortion, then what, exactly, should the approach be? What treatment would do justice to the energy that was recorded in the vocal booth? DHI was still a young band at this stage. Still in our early twenties, and operating within the tightest of indie budgets.
Needless to say, there wouldn't be a big name producer DHI (Death And Horror Inc)* - Bitter Alloys / Pressures Collide staff to help expand upon our new, and more dynamic, vocal executions.
Working with such limited resources also meant that there was barely any time to experiment in the studio. Once our live performances were recorded, gears needed to shift directly into mixdown sessions.
The clock was ticking. And once a mix was done, it was done. There was no revisiting a "file" the next day to flesh things out further. After all, these sessions were done during a time when mutlitrack hard drive recording was a rare, and costly, endeavour.
The DHI tracks were tape recordings, mixed in single overnight sessions. After a mixdown reached a bleary-eyed conclusion at about 5 a. In the end, we felt we had an album that was more sophisticated and thematically deeper than our first. But the absence of DHI (Death And Horror Inc)* - Bitter Alloys / Pressures Collide proper budget left several tracks sounding somewhat unfinished, and not entirely representative of the power that we were capable of.
Beginning inwe unearthed the cache of multitrack tapes that we had recorded a quarter century earlier. Hitting the play button on the isolated vocal performances was something of a revelation: throughout all of the songs, the energy and sense of commitment was palpable. But at the same time, it was clear DHI (Death And Horror Inc)* - Bitter Alloys / Pressures Collide not enough of that vitality was preserved, or amplified, during the time-restricted mixdowns of This was a score that needed to be settled.
With the multitracks back in hand, the mixing desk was fired up once again, and now Pressures Collide is finally the album that it could have been the first time around. Vicar: vocals, samples, guitars, synths Nocturne: samples Graf: samples, airwave appropriation, power tools. DHI has a willingness to experiment, take a few risks and damn the consequences.
