Destroid - Silent World
Electro Destroid have released two albums prior to this EP release and the man behind the project is Daniel Meyer, more known to many of you as a part of Haujob. Before this, I hadn't heard of Destroid, neither have I therefore heard any of his material. But I'm very happy that I did, because this is a lovely EP.

The first track is called "I Walk Slow" and is a pretty low paced and slow track. I find it a bit strange that the first track is not the faster second track "Silent World" and the title song, but "I Walk Slow" somehow set the mood for this release. Like I said, the second track is faster and is sure a delight as well. My favorite track on the EP is the third song called "Leaving Ground", it's hard to differ it from Assemblage 23, but I do not care, it's amazing.

The fourth track is a cover of Sisters of Mercy's old classic "Lucretia My Reflection". Not the most obvious song as an electro band to do a cover of, but it's a perfect mix with a new electronic feeling to it, without removing the old flavour of Sisters of Mercy.

There's also four remixes on this EP. Assemblage 23's remix of "Leaving Ground" is great. I especially like the slow motion part a minute into the song as well as pounding sounds that somehow brings my mind to the old track "Flat Beat" by Mr.Oizo. Strange, I know.

The remix of "Silent Ground" by [:SITD:] is alright, a bit plain and without any surprises at all. Very much what you'd expected. There's also a remix of "Bird of Prey" from their latest album 'Loudspeaker' and since I haven't heard the original, it's hard to compare the two, but I do like it, I can tell you that much. There's also a remix of the Sisters of Mercy cover, but the first version is way much better, this second version is just to monotone and scaled down.

Finally there's a live version of "Let Me Leave", also from 'Loudspeaker'. A powerful and fitting goodbye to a really great EP. I can't wait until a new full-length release and until then I will make sure I get my hands on the two first albums from 2004 and 2007.
