Ad Inferna - Ultimum Omnium
Dark Electro, Industrial If a salesman would do a sales pitch about Ad Inferna, he would probably emphasize the music, because if it's something Ad Inferna really can do, it's some truly great dance music. If you think I am full of sh*t about this face, take a listen to their new tracks "Hell Within", "All Shall Die", "Madone" (the almost string instrument like sounds are amazing) and "Extinction" (especially, what a melody!) . I'm sure you'll fix me up as Most Honest Man 2012.

Where Ad Inferna would use some work to emerge as top of the class, is at the vocals department. Generally it's somewhat above average, especially while screaming (the regular "singing" in the opening of "Hell Within" as an example is, well, less than great). Don't get me wrong, I've heard worse, a lot worse actually. What I am doing here is somewhat finding the little bugs that needs to be tweaked and corrected. What I do enjoy though is the variation of the vocals, and by keeping it varied, they keep me interested. It's just some parts that need to be tuned and you got something truly great on all fields.

Where many Harsh EBM acts lack nowadays is to make something that feels unique for them, even the slightest touch. However, Ad Inferna have managed to do so, you can here it's them instantly and the great melodies is their motto. They are no longer "some Harsh band", they are Ad Inferna.

Ad Inferna have made a name for themselves, and by all right. They keep high standard on their releases and they release on a regular basis, not letting you forget about them for even one second. If you liked the 'There Is No Cure' album from last year, you surely are going to enjoy 'Ultimum Omnium' as well.
