Founded in 1999, Seattle based Tau Factor is a solo project that truly shows promise in this, its second release. Carsten P., the harnessed brainwave behind the programming and recording of Second Stage Ignition, has succeeded in creating an album that has a full sound, something you wouldnt expect to hear in a project with one member. Using an interesting array of synths and vocal processors, Tau Factor has created a great classic sounding EBM album that is infused with modern day trance elements.
