Angelspit - Larva Pupa Tank Coffin
Electropunk, Industrial I think that perhaps this remix album, 'Larva Pupa Tank Coffin', was not the best way to experience Angelspit for the first time, since many of the remixes feels like the approach was to toss in as much cool industrial sounds as possible into a mush pit and let shit get brutal. Therefore I took the liberty to listen to some of the original tracks and even if I find them better than the remixed version, I simply can't ignore the fact that I get a strong feeling that it sounds like a modern, slowed down version of Atari Teenage Riot.

There's a little of singing generally in this album, more aggressive talking from the vocalist DestroyX and more harsh whispering from the keyboardist ZooG (sometimes a bit to quiet to even hear the lyrics properly). Even though there's suppose to be somewhat of a revolting undertone in the vocals, I can't say that I feel that they are passionate enough to transfer the feeling to me as a listner.

Even though Atari Teenage Riot made an awesome gig at Hultsfredsfestivalen 1999, they where far from a favourite band for me and the same goes for Angelspit. It gets too freaked out, to mashed up, to little sense or simply to difficult for me. Sometimes simplicity is the key to my heart. Alltough, "Sleep Now (Dave Forman)", is worth checking out.
