Black Hole Nine - V2.0
Dark Electro, Electro-Industrial Black Hole Nine is a harsh electro band from originating from Venezuela, but recently moved to Mexico City.

The album 'V2.0' contains 28(!) tracks, but unfortunately this works mostly to their disadvantage. The first 19 tracks are purely instrumental tracks with samples instead of vocals. By looking at each track by them selves, you will find good melodies and powerful beats to get your groove on, but if you look at them as a mass, many of the tracks have the same structure and almost 20 instrumental tracks in a row get very, very tedious. I would recommend them to instead choose their top 10 tracks and release that instead, quantity is not always better.

But with track 20 something happens, suddenly we have vocals and lyrics to the tracks and this makes it much more interesting. It's easy to draw some parallels with Combichrist with their techno inspired harsh electro. I can't figure out why you would hide them in the last part of this over the top album release, these tracks should have been in the beginning and then go with the 20 instrumental tracks (if you for some reason need to release all 28 tracks at once).

Black Hole Nine need to focus their forces and not attack on all fronts as once. I would appreciate more a solid and focused 8 track album rather than a widespread 28 track album any given day.
