On this album, the band focused on the vision of enlarging industrial's scope rather than narrowing it to one style that could be easily described ... or dismissed. This time the mixing was made by Roli Mosiman from Swans. The industrial scene was at that time fully in bloom – the genre gained the proper respect not only in Europe, but also across the Atlantic, where bands from Chicago's Wax Trax label – Front Line Assembly and KMFDM – got extremely popular. The international media also begun noticing Treponem Pal – a band previously associated only with the underground scene. The attention was caused mainly by the excellent remix of Kraftwerk's "Radioactivity". Asked back then about choosing this track, which is totally different from the rest of the compositions on "Aggravation", Marco Neves commented: "I like the contrast. That's why we've done this song. It's a real contrast to Treponem Pal. Maybe in the future we will try to make some songs with more contrast… but in fact what we are doing is to make a contrast inside the songs."
