Menschdefekt - Projekt Tremor
Harsh EBM, Dark Electro Menschdefekt's 'Projekt Tremor' is a self-produced EP and beside the limited hard copy digipack edition of 25 copies, it's a digital release that will be sold at CDbaby.com.

Usually self-released works means shitty sound and garage recordings, but the first thing that strikes me is that it's no way to get the feeling that this is not a regular commercial label release, so don't let the "off label" stamp scare you off.

The sound of Menschdefekt is far most your ordinary German EBM and though they are not revolutionizing the genre in any way, they do what the do in a good way. You got a steady and pounding base for the dance floor, some really great melodies together with distorted vocals that will get most electroheads excited. Even though I like the melodies, it sometimes feels like they are a bit copy and pasted and a bit unvaried, maybe cut them down a bit during the verse and really let it explode during the chorus to get a greater sensation.

"Flames", "Slave" and "Dekadenz" is my favourite tracks with good balance and will leave you humming while I think "Schizophrenia" is the downside of the EP since it's quite the struggle between the chorus melody and the vocals.

This is really a strong non-instrumental debut and I'm convinced that Dominik and Fredrik don't need to release their next work off-label.
