Diezel Xzaust - Move Your Head
TBM, Rhythmic Noise Diezel Xzaust is a band formed by Archie Lunatic and Alexey Mad. The project has been established since the beginning of 2011. This is a review of their sixth release an EP, consisting of two tracks and for remixes. So let's see how good this techno body music from Russia is?

The first track "Move Your Head" presents rhythmic drums from the very start, hard and loud and almost military like, and enough to frighten any enemy. With no option but to move your head, it's a natural reaction. The accompanying noize being also as rhythmic, makes it somehow danceable. Banging from start to finish.

The "Move Your Head (Freak.Dolls Remix)" brings a much faster beat and more prominent synths. Not so different from the original as maybe it should be. But I like it as a remix and at least they haven't ruined the original track.

Our third track is "Move Your Head (Anesthesia Ultradeath Remix)", a very different much more melodic start, a dark electro almost rave version which I very much approve of. Some nice effects included and a different drum beat making for a good dance track.

Next we have the second original track from Diezel Xzaust, "Schmerz". A much more power noize track but in places still retains enough rhythm to make it a dance track, but it's only the drum beat which enables it to be so. The rest of it is closing in on my pain threshold at times. Basically this is a different track but you are still moving your head in the main to this one, with the occasional moment where you want to jump out of the window.

The "Schmerz (Freaky Mind Painful Remix)" is a more TBM, even harsh electro version, with a great beat, and suicide inducing moments removed, and harsh lyrics added. Another good Freaky Mind dance remix.

We conclude with "Schmerz (Traumatize Remix)", I keep thinking one day Jacek will disappoint me but not today. It's dark electro and so full of sounds and samples right from the start, somehow these are kept clear without it turning into a complete mess. Well produced as is the whole EP. So much in this remix, I can find something new each time I listen to it.

Conclusion:
This EP is very much what Diezel Xzaust say it is, a mixture of TBM and Power Noise for their two tracks. It's rythmic noise at it's best , it has a rhythm and a beat, and you can actually dance to it. No glamour, no nonsense, pure energy with a powerful beat. My highlight from Diezel Xzaust is "Move Your Head", although I haven't got much to choose from with two tracks.

They also choose their remix collaborators very wisely. The remixes are good and different and keep the EP to a good standard, no one has let the side down. For the remixes I will choose "Move Your Head (Anesthesia Ultradeath Remix)", but only because I feel like dancing.

For those who don't know them Diezel Xzaust are very much a band to look out for.
