Overview

Blaqk Audio may be a pleasant distraction for AFI's Davey Havok and Jade Puget -- most side projects are -- but given the depth of Cexcells' tracks it sounds like a little more. And if the duo is swayed by sales -- the record is keeping pace with regular AFI albums -- it could head that way. Working from the dark electronic tones set free on AFI's most recent records, Decemberunderground included, Havok and Puget fully indulge their inner eyeliner-wearing '80s club kids here: "Stiff Kittens" and "Where Would You Like Them Left?" recall Depeche Mode at their most disturbing, while "Wake Up" and "The Fear of Being Found" tread more quietly but with no less determination. A couple of goth-tinged dance tracks, "On a Friday" and "Snuff on Digital," also deliver an authentically synthy experience, which may sound impossible but isn't. Havok and Puget borrow from their forebears but inflate these tracks with their own odd brilliance (and flourishes, and beats). Fans of AFI, and anybody who never heard a blackish blast of modern electronic music they didn't like, ought to investigate Cexcells.

A dark & chill electronic rock-synth sound: unique and separate from AFI, I definitely recommend checking it out. Jade Puget is a stunning song-writer and Davey Havok is as always, a lyrical genius. Songs from this album have been featured in multiple video games and movies. I also suggest checking out the instrumentals for these songs, they're just as wonderful.

This is such an awesome album...I would definitely recommend it for anyone who considers themselves as an AFI fan, (heck, it has two of their members in it!)...
