Estramay Aleph is the third release from the UK band Void Construct. I would define the album as electro EBM - VERY electro, but that is definitely not a bad thing. Void Construct have put together a simple album, that has a very grand sound. Even though there are only 3 to 4 layers on the whole, it does not take away from any song. Each song is filled with a raw energy that makes me think they would be an amazing band to see play live. The movie samples are perfectly placed (even the excerpt from Alien:Resurrection), the best being excerpts from Pi in the song "Construct". Unlike most industrial bands that seem to struggle to put together a solid album from start to finish, this one stands out, hands down. There are no weak points on this album.

One of the most noticeable things about this album is that the songs start slow, build up to a crescendo, and release with a near orgasmic intensity. This is not to say they cannot slow it down. When they do, like in "Construct", you do not want it to end. I have had this album for about 5 years now and it has not been out of my regular rotation for more than 3 months. This is a very harsh album but very enjoyable. This album is a definite must in any industrial/ EBM collection.
