Patrick Maiwald lvl's sophomore album made him one of my favorites in electronic music. Less flashy and aggressive, but more melancholic and introverted than the debut. Tracks like "Open Mind" and "Home" have some truly addictive potential, while other tracks intrigue with their complex rhythm arrangements. The bonus tracks on this 2017 re-release version are also well worth it! Favorite track: Monophase.

Chris Swain lvl really had something special with this album. I truly wish he didn't run into so many issues with the hardware these songs were stored on. I'm assuming that is also why the track "Reaching Out" didn't make it on this release. I'm just happy I have the actual CD it was released on! Hopefully one day lvl might show up again in the music scene but until then I'm ecstatic to have his complete collection of tunes! Favorite track: Monophase.

about

Denial is lvl’s 2003 follow-up album to Devil’s Advocate. Denial marks a transition from the project’s use of chugging guitars and evolves into an elaborate adventure of electronic programming and synths. Originally released in 2003, the album’s 14 tracks have been remastered and upgraded with 6 rare/unreleased bonus tracks.

Denial ranges from synth pop tracks like "End Title" and "Open Mind" to the dance floor energy of "Home," tribal chanting of "What Free Is" to the live-bass/guitar intensity of "Decide." The album’s bonus tracks include rare vocal tracks "Monophase" and "Instinctive Reaction" and a mesmerizing beat & synth driven instrumental "Holding." The final bonus track once again reunites brothers Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust, Scandroid) and Dan (lvl), as their musical projects collide in the Celldweller remix of "Home."
