My Dear Killer - delusions
Dark Electro My Dear Killer is a dark electro solo act from Jason Hepburn that was formed in 2005-2006. And, this release came out in January of 2013, and it's alright, in my opinion. I refuse to say it's uninspired, as all music that's created is inspired by something or another, but it just isn't all too great.

I don't often commentate on the production quality of albums, but this one was definitely lacking. It just sounded muddy and pretty bad in all cases, as if it were dug up from archived materials from the nineties off of a tape. While the instrumentation is decent, I just feel as if some things just fall out of place or are just an oddball in comparison with everything else.

And, well, there aren't really any songs on this release that I can recommend to anyone. As mainly an instrumental album, I'm sure that one could easily find another instrumental album in the dark electro scenery where it sounds better. However, I refuse to put all negatives on this album. There is talent here. I will say that much. The beats can be catchy at times, and with some cleaning up and more revamped sounds, I'm sure Hepburn will easily be able to grab the attention of listeners.

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.
