"The Apoplyptic Manifesto" is a collection of Apoptygma Berzerk's greatest hits taken from all of the older Apoptygma Berzerk singles, EP's, and albums up to, but not including "7". As a result of the material being taken from across a five year back catalogue, many of the tracks sound disparate when placed next to one another. The older material such as 'Ashes to Ashes' and 'Burning Heretics' has certainly begun to show it's age mostly due to the cheap equipment it was recorded on back in 1991. Apoptygma Berzerk also utilizes a great deal of Synth-Pop elements in their music, which has been a major complaint I have had with Scandanavian Electro artists for years. Regardless, die hard fans who have been hunting for long out of print 12" singles will certainly enjoy this release due to the appearance of several rare tracks.
