Listen to it in the dark (with headphones) and enjoy the best sequencers, mellotron and guitar sounds in electronic music since a long time. This music reminds me of Tangerine Dream works during their best period (IMHO 1970-84). Man, I was happy when I discovered this group. Good music for dreaming or driving (not both at the same time;-) Run for it! (and take REPUBLIC too) EN

I really think Radio Massacre International is simply one of the finest electronic acts since Tangerine Dream in their glory days. Frozen North is RMI's debut, from 1995, and I wondered why these guys passed my radar scope for all these years? It wasn't until 2007 when I discovered these guys, when I heard how their music was described, and purchased Emissaries (2005) and was not one bit disappointed. So of course, I had to purchase many of their CDs and CD-Rs. I would have probably had a much easier time purchasing their back catalog had I knew them since Frozen North came out in late '95.

How did RMI pull off such a great debut? Simple: they already had over a decade and a half experience. In the 1980s, the group was previously called DAS, without the guitar input of Gary Houghton (DAS stood for Duncan and Steve, that is Duncan Goddard and Steve Dinsdale). With the probable exception of a privately issued cassette in 1980 called Earthdeath, no other DAS material surfaced at the time, although some of their stuff did surface on the occasional RMI release, like much of the first disc of the Lost in Space CD-R box set and the last cut on Zabriskie Point. So the group was more than prepared when they came up with Frozen North.

The group wasn't exactly the most modest of guys out there. They often had a habit of doing extended compositions that can last up to nearly an hour long. And for a debut, it was a double CD, but they had enough great material to warrant such a thing. They obviously took full advantage of the CD, something TD obviously couldn't do back in the '70s, since CDs didn't exist, so they had to stick to the time constraint of the vinyl LP, meaning many of their compositions like that of Rubycon were interrupted by Part One and Part Two for each side of the LP.

I was lucky enough to here and see the band on the chill out zone on mtv. if u are into 70's and early 80's electric music then these are the top band, great sequenced based music, best listerned to in the dark,great sounds and interesting bass lines recommended to all with a taste for T.dream Klaus Shultze or Cluster

Fantastic electronic music. I saw this band in the UK and they were great. Last year they toured the US and did some great shows. The best way to enjoy is to blank out the outside world and let it envelop you (dark room/ headphones). enjoy!

Radio Massacre International are essentially the Tangerine Dream that should have been. This album, although a debut 2-CD set, is a brilliant collection of atmospheric sequencer-driven pieces that harken back to the golden era of electronic music. Having heard TD's Rubycon or Phaedra, one always wonders how much farther these albums could have been taken. The answer lies squarely in the Frozen North. RMI's music here is reminiscent enough of the '70's experimentation, but it also brings the maturity of a retrospective look 20 years on. Every piece is an homage and at once an expansion on the foundation built by TD and Jarre. Physical copies are hard to find nowadays, but the album can be purchased and downloaded on MusicZeit.
