Synopsis

Amazon.com
This debut features a sparse blend of clanging percussion, aggressive bass riffs, and impassioned screaming. In spirit, the music is industrial, yet it manages to avoid the cliches critics associate with the genre (such as overly processed vocals, and megadistorted guitar sounds). The songs dispense with traditional notions of melody and harmony, focusing instead on percussive innovation and rhythmic variation. Although monophonic synth lines comprise the only tonal instrumentation, the upbeat tempos, relentless vocals, and percussive embellishment prevent the arrangements from growing tedious. --Michael A. Massa

This album is rather interesting due to what Ebb developed into. Only for the fans.

TIMELESS

"There is no comparison of That Total Age to any other musical work from another artist. It is NITZER EBB at their purest. It's perfect -- unrelentingly aggressive, timeless and poignant. It's as relevent today as it was when recorded. If your're looking at this recording you've already made it this far, enduldge yourself. Research their catalog and profile, they are worth it. Go see them too."

"My favorite album from the Industrial Age of music. I love every track and sometimes I feel winded after hearing it because I've wanted to jump out of my office chair when it plays.

I heard the tracks at clubs when I was in high school and I remember the joyous mayhem on the dance floor. The energy from the crowd was awesome. I feel sorry for kids these days who only get rap, hip hop, or pop at their clubs."
