Yes, this is that 1996 Coptic Rain album which I consider to be the best in their whole discography (and one of my all-time favourites in general). This album is dominated by cathy energetic songs like "The Haunt" or "Cortex Wave", which I'd rather call "industrial punk" than "industrial metal", although it's diverse enough to have even one acoustic ballad ("And All I Loved"). Katrin Radman's slightly distorted vocals sound cold and robotic, yet energetic and touching at the same time - a perfect kind of vocal work for such kind of music. The best song on the whole album, "Rejoice", makes up for its name as I become inexplicably happy each time I listen to it. Highly recommended!
