When we last left off with Dälek, they had released Absence, a dark and dirgy romp through hip-hop''s underground that left countless listeners and critics in awe. However, while it would probably be a good career move to replicate that album''s noisy charm, Dälek have once again reinvented themselves with their fourth and most accomplished full-length, Abandoned Language. "We''ve been making wall of noise records for a long time and I think with Absence we realized that was as far as we wanted to go with that sound," dälek (the MC/producer) explains. "That sound was just so heavy and dense, but the new one is about composition and notes we are playing. The layering is still there, but the instrumentation is totally different." In fact, from the sinister strings in "Lynch" to old-school hip-hop flavor of "Isolated Stare" to the heady melodicism of "Tarnished", Abandoned Language is complex enough for fans of avant-noise, but accessible enough for mainstream hip-hop audiences.
