While taking almost eighteen months from the original release date of this album until it actually hit the stores, "Tactiq" is well worth the wait. Not only has the Colorado trio returned with a volume of new material since they changed their name from the Watchmen to Society Burning, but they have drastically reworked all of the older material present on the album. The first thing that long time fans will realize is that guitars have taken a much more prevalent role in the overall mixing of the music. However, don't panic, Society Burning hasn't become a metal hybrid band, instead they have realized that a guitar is not an instrument to be feared for it's lack of original sounds. Instead they have chosen to incorporate the instrumental cornerstone of American rock music in a new and different manner. Electronics, vocals, and percussive take the forefront of the music while the guitars are used as primarily rhythm instruments and filler to keep the music from becoming too minimal. So if you have had a chance to listen to their previous EP "Entropy Lingua", or their independently released "Disease", you'll still enjoy the new Society Burning sound. By not choosing to remain stuck in a musical rut, the band has chosen to stride forth into new musical territory without forgetting their original musical roots. This is definitely an admirable trait that manifest's itself on this, their debut album on Re-Constriction Records.
