C-Drone-Defect - Dystopia
Dark Electro, Electro-Industrial C-Drone-Defect released his debut album 'Neural Dysorder Syndrome' back in 2001 and the follow-up 'Nemesis' was out on the market in 2004. Time went by and everything was quiet until 2009 when it was finally the release of Marc Horstmeier's third album 'Dystopia'.

There is a red line that follows throughout the album. One part is that all the tracks are named in Latin and the second one is the doomsday-choir-alike sounds that are included in most of the songs, a truly great effect that gives this album an edge of time feeling.

After the slow and heavy start with the opening title "Rebellis", my favourite track of the album "Morituri Te Salutant" begins and here are the choir effects at its best. The title is the phrase the gladiator's of old Rome said to the Caesar before they started their fight until death. The English translation is the famous "Those who are about to die salute you".

The album don't get better than that, but there are some other good tracks to mention, "Orpheus" (which is a classic figure in Greek mythology and known as the "chief of poets and musicians"), "Mundus Vult Decipi" (meaning "The world wants to be deceived") and almost like a harsh ballad with a great refrain called "Tempus Fugit" (meaning "Time flees").

Overall, the album has some really good tracks and some that do not stick to you that much, still it sure is a good album worth checking out.
