Arian 1 - Immersion
EBM, Techno Arian 1 is an electro duo from Peru and they have been making music together since the beginning of the 90's. However, their first official debut album was not released until 2009 and was named 'Evolution'. 'Immersion' is their follow-up album and that's also the one we are going to take a closer look at.

They are probably best described as a bit harder Futurepop mixed with industrial sounds and some EBM. I really enjoy Eduardo's voice; it's nice to listen to and goes together with the music as the last piece of a puzzle. I spent many days listening to this album in my car to work as well as during work. I can?t say that I ever grew tired of it.

The first track, which also gave its name to the album, "Immersion" is the best track of the album. The chorus is just great and the melodies are simple, but wonderful. Fortunately it doesn't stop there; the good tracks just keep coming. "Sigma", "Wake Up", "No Time" (also a huge favourite), "Change?" there's actually just three tracks I do not find great, and those are the three harder and more upbeat tracks "Stompers", "Ionic Body" and the more or less instrumental track "U209". They are simply not fitting in with the great picture and seem a bit odd to me compared to the rest of the sound.

If it was not for the three mentioned tracks, this would be a 9. This is however a great album, so you should check it out. I will most definitely keep my eyes open for coming releases from Arian 1.
