Rave The Reqviem - MINIVIEW: Remix The Reqviem
Industrial Metal, Dubstep Though industrial metal has seen brighter days, artists such as Rave The Reqviem come around from time to time and absolutely thrash everything in sight, destroying all of our expectations and shattering our preconceived notions of what exactly industrial metal really can be. It's no secret that we (as well as many others) enjoyed the debut, self-titled release from the Swedish band, but at the time being we didn't get a chance to check out the second, remix disc aptly titled "Remix The Reqviem". But, now that I have it, and since DWA is a label known for putting out fantastic remixes with almost every single one of their artists' releases, it's time for me to tell why this remix album is awesome. 

You could automatically presume the album's epicness when you see names such as Faderhead, Grendel, and iVardensphere in the mix, but those heavy hitters aren't the only ones packing ridiculously awesome versions of RTR's songs. You have the metal influences of Thomas Nyholm, the constant changing electronics of W.A.S.T.E., the building momentum of Ruinizer's pulsing beats, Tim Ismag's modern EDM touch, NITRO/NOISE's magical harsh club sound, the sensual rhythm that only vProjekt could provide, DJ Arti-Fix's odd blast of Dubstep, AAIMON's witchery, and Animal Tag's hardcore input. Yes, that was a giant run-on sentence, but that just goes to show you what you'll be getting with this album. 

This is honestly just a short look at everything that is contained in "Remix The Reqviem", but I'll be damned if I haven't been blown away by another collection of remixes from DWA. Perhaps more impressive than some I've seen so far, this is an excellent companion piece to RTR's debut.

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.
