Persona Non Grata - Trail Of Galactus
Industrial, Breakcore I selected Netherlands for this release, but i do not know where Persona Non Grata comes from, but this EP is on a Dutch label so Netherlands will have to do for now.

As usual with all the material released by Noisj, this is next level industrial hardcore with very fast tempo's (160-180 BPM), lots of distortion and heavy pounding beats. Currently this style seems pretty much on the rise, and i see more and more DJ's from the industrial and EBM side incorporating sounds from acts like this in their DJ sets. Not suprisingly because with the old industrial/EBM scene pretty much dying off, and producing more and more stale mediocrity, DJ's out for quality cutting edge hard dancefloor material automatically end up in doomcore, hardtechno and industrial hardcore.

This EP holds four tracks which will make every dancefloor bent on very harsch material go wild. Opener "Melancolie" is very breakcore and crossbreed in its execution. A lot of breaks and beatstutters which isn't my favorite in hard dance, but it's a cool track.

"Vitra" is for me the toptrack of this EP. Very steady extremely hard beats with some tuned breaks. Lots of noise, and freaky percussion. And a somewhat slower tempo somehwere in the 150-160 BPM range. I am sure this one will go down well with the crowd.

The other two songs are much in the vein of "Vitra" only faster paced. All in all a great EP of this for me unknown producer. Maybe there is someone known behind this, because its hard to make out sideprojects and such in Industrial Hardcore, but if this a debute we have another great producer to fuck us up with sonic violence.
