Bloody-Disgusting – EDITOR’S CHOICE 5/5! “I am absolutely besotted with this release … Perturbator has shown enormous growth and maturity with The Uncanny Valley. There is clearly a mind-boggling amount of thought that has gone into each track … skillfully [weaving] an album that is intricate and absolutely fascinating.” – Jonathan Barkan
MetalSucks.net – 4/5 “The Uncanny Valley is akin to a great, lost John Carpenter score. Influences range from early Wax Trax industrial … to post-disco Moroder … to Jan Hammer soundscapes. The rare vocal track like “Venger” might have snuck onto the Drive soundtrack. The more cinematic moments here evoke Daft Punk’s brooding Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
Echoes And Dust by Daniel Chavez, “Perturbator takes hard synth back to the days when it was dangerous, when it had a demonic soul to crush your ears and erotically intoxicate your spirit.”
Alex Coulombe, SLUG Mag
“This is a brutal journey into some original, thought-provoking music from a man who knows how to fuse his love of quality sci-fi/horror films and quality music into nothing short of true art.” –
