Die Sektor - (-)existence(+)
Electro-Industrial, Dubstep Finally, after making it at number 16 on our collected album of the year list, we have a review for the epic (-)existence. I only wish this were reviewed when it first released, for it deserves huge acknowledgment on any site worth reading. The four men behind this extremely respectful act have found an amazing close in the Void Trilogy, all which began with 2011's Applied Structure In A Void. Sit back and prepare for an emotional journey, because Die Sektor is pulling off a full frontal assault on all your senses without cranking back the notches.

This is most apparent within the first song, kicking it slowly, but pouring in so much bass and synths that you can't help but get goosebumps as the track drives you through the turmoil through the very end. The vocals are still strong and distorted, nearing perfection with their harsh tones, I find it hard to find any one band that can compete with these strong and digitally enhanced chords.

Each song shifts in pace and tempo through each and every second. You can expect one thing or another, but, I swear on my mother, you won't expect half the beats that come after the next. There were points where I would expect a song to breakout and go crazy, but instead I was treated to a more quiet sound. And then there were other moments when the frenetic energy of any which track dissipated, broke off, only to return after a few moments of quiet time. It was a fantastic listening experience through and through.

Honestly, it's hard to find a single song on this album that I appreciate more than the other. Each has its own strength, drawing upon the electronic mastery of any of the men behind the album, proving that, once more, Die Sektor is prepared to deliver an album that'll kick us in the face as we beg for another.

Also, on this fantastic album, we are treated to twelve very respectable artists. BlakOPz, DYM, Sin D.N.A, Nitro/Noise, Cynical Existence, Frontal Boundary, Die Braut, Cease2Xist, Studio-X, Cryogen Second, Sirus, and Dream Recall all make a stand on the album. And, if you aren't too dim in the brain, you may as well guess that each and every one of these remixes are fantastic in their own right.

When one is given an album, yes, they hope that it's good. But, sometimes, even after listening to the same band over and over, you're given something that exceeds expectations. Because that's exactly what happened with me on this release. I am already eager for more Die Sektor, but I just hope I can avoid the fanboy status by not shoving their works in everyone's face that I meet. Seriously, I think people that I don't know might find it strange if I run up to them and shove this CD down their throat.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
