IIOIOIOII - Rising Sky/ Stardust
Ambient, Industrial You know, if there's one thing that I absolutely adore about EPs, it would have to be that they (if they're good) are teases for what's to come in an upcoming release by an artist. And, when those circumstances are met, the EP just becomes one giant cock tease. And my cock is being teased a whole lot right now, for IIOIOIOII's Rising Sky. This four track beauty contains two tracks (Rising Sky and Stardust) that shall be released with the forthcoming album, Sun, while two of the others (Could Have Been and Good Night) are exclusive to the EP.

And the EP hits us straight off with Rising Sky, which is by far one of my favorite tracks I've heard in a while. It's honestly an addictive song, completely playing off 80's inspired tunes that is touched with early electro-industrial. The vocals are very soothing, and there's a charming synth line going throughout the whole song. It's an inspiration through and through.

Stardust is another nice song on the EP, however, it does not hit the high mark that Rising Sky left in its wake. Needless to say, the chimes in the background playing over the song are nice. Up next we are hit with Could Have Been, and although it sounds similar to the previous tracks, the synth work is different and makes it enjoyable instead of making me feel as if I'm listening to repetition.

Now, the final track on the EP is Good Night, which first appeared on a demo by IIOIOIOII, and is a remastered version of the original. It is also by far the most unique song on the album. Trading in his regular, almost talking like vocals, we are given a creepy whisper. Coupled with that with a pretty moody beat, and we have a song that ties with Rising Sky.

So, from a pretty unknown artist, we are given a damn good EP which I really hope will boast promotion for their next album. The songs on it are really good, as stated above in different phrases and different, I thoroughly enjoyed this EP. And, furthermore, after having listened to it twice more, my cock is teased even greater than before. I feel as if my orgasm is building, and is ready to shoot. However, I need to wait until Sun releases to experience such erotic pleasures. Until then, I shall sit here, and wait, all while relistening to this again.

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.
