Inertia - Lies
EBM, Electro With their latest release coming back in 2012, it was just a matter of time before we got a remix EP from the electro rockers. The EP focuses mainly around the track Lies from Universal Blood, and contains remixes from the likes of Panic Lift, Angelspit, and more to fill the roster.

The first song mix is extremely heartfelt and personal, which allows Alexys to reflect on the attack she suffered in late 2012 by a gang of gals. Tying in themes with the murder of gothic girl Sophie Lancaster, this song hits pretty hard. Not only that, but the original song is pretty sexy on its own; the mix only turns up the heat.

Panic Lift takes a stab with the next mix, inputting some harder beats which really stand out during the chorus. The Mark Gemini Twaite Mix of Streaming makes use of some heavy guitar, and really drives out the electro-rock influences of the band.

Komor Kommando, the well known industrial act, also puts in their two cents into Lies. Making it very electronic centered, but also adding a lot of repetition within this mix served up one of the lesser mixes. Angelspit's mix of Blind was weird in a sense. I want to enjoy it, as it has a sort of catchy rhythm to it, but, in the end, it sounds all too chopped up to be remotely enjoyable.

The Ionnokz Mix of Lies put things in better persepective for myself. While the song differed from the original greatly, the combination of more electronics with the guitars worked a lot better than the prior two remixes. And the last mix on the album was Cortex Defect's work of Streaming. Their futurepop influence was definitely shown here, giving the synths some loving and exercise.

So, this is a decently presented EP. While two of the mixes weren't to my exact tastes, the rest worked for me in one way or the other. I'd have to say that the S.O.P.H.I.E. mix worked the best, as it was a lot more personal than the rest and has the potential to become a heart throbbing song. And the rest of the EP works alright, too; I just don't think this is the best remix release I've heard in my time.

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.
