Pittersplatter - Frozen
Electronics, Industrial So, just in time for the wicked holiday of Halloween, the masters of dark electronic music has decided to grace us with a free present in the form of Frozen. Now, this single originally took part on the album of the same name, however, along with the original title we are brought forth an orchestral version of the song as well, and Pittersplatter has not failed to impress me at all.

Now, the original version of Frozen is absolutely fantastic. It stands out to me as my first favorite song on the album of origin. The vocals aren't exactly haunting in any sense, however, you can easily tell that they are tormented emotionally. And that serves as an excellent impact on the album. Throughout the song, we also get these moments of deep pitched hums. Serving well in this song are all the electronic elements that pulse through your veins. It honestly is a glorious way to start a Halloween day.

Now, the orchestral version of the song is not as good as the original in my eyes, but it's still able to hold its own. Replacing all the electronic elements comes exactly what the title suggests; a remixed version of the original replacing most of the electronics with instruments. The vocals, for the most part, stay the same, however, when it comes to the later half of the song, we are delivered a pretty awesome layering of chords.

And, so, without really sparing anymore of your festive time, I shall say that this is definitely worth as a freebie grab. For those who have already purchased Frozen, you can half expect what will come along with this release, but as Pittersplatter is a sort of cult-band, I can assure that those diehard fans out there shall not be disappointed.

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.
