The whole album set preserves a remix quality pretty much following the standards from the 80s-90s techniques, basically oriented beat worshipping later transcending into bits of break beat and amplifying the groovy experience from 808s sequences. Enhancing the sound mix for the pristine Neoclassical parts and giving more danceable punch to the whole repertoire.
Cold, austere darkwave electronica gets an injection of human soul with the music of Attrition. Their programmed sounds vary from urgent, tight patterns to subtler, almost ambient, rhythms. Medieval, plainsong melodies are the inspiration to Attrition's vocal facet. On "Cold Genius (Polaxe Remix)" they go for the real thing, including the work of baroque English composer Henry Purcell. Their exquisite juxtaposition has the possibility of being majestic at times.
