Freakangel - The Faults of Humanity
Dark Electro, Industrial Freakangel, is the spawn of Dmitry i, the mastermind behind the band Suicidal Romance. Freakangel is an Aggrotech/Industrial band with heavily distorted vocals and aggressive beats combined with melodies and a background guitar. 'The Faults of Humanity' is the debut album from the band.

The first track "God's Blind Game" is a really nice track with a chorus melody that sticks to your brain. This goes the same for the track "Under Code" with is also one of the better tracks but it's a bit more monotone than "God's Blind Game" on some parts. The only track which I don't really like is "Crawling in the Dark" its very slow and feels a bit flat compared to the other tracks and it's lacking something which I really can't put my finger on.

The album has a really fresh sound that combine a tiny bit of metal together with Aggrotech/Harsh EBM and even some trance influences. There are strong melodies and beats that makes your teeth clatter. I really like bands that have a lot of club tracks and Freakangel is a band meant to be played in clubs. These days it's hard to be new and innovative and some bands just try too hard. In my own opinion its better to make something you like to do and do it good and Freakangel does that.

This could be what Psyclon Nine should have been, a combination of electro and metal in a good harmony and not just trying to be something it isn't. The only downside is that on a few tracks the guitar is maybe a tiny bit too loud and should maybe have been placed a bit more in the background and also on the track "My Darling Bullet" the melody seems to disappear behind all the other sounds.

The production of this album is really good and it's been mastered by Jan L from X-fusion productions so you can expect a really high sound quality.

I am already looking forward to the next album and hope it will be even better.
