Sadiztik:Injektion - Beta Version World
Harsh EBM, Trance You could count the reasons this is an unlikely success on two hands. First of all, Turkey is not the country you would expect to find a Harsh EBM project to come from. Secondly, despite the (in my opinion) decent project name, Deliberate misspellings in the scene have their critics.

Regardless, back in 2008, Samet Ozgur (who IS Sadiztik:Injektion) released this album, which is a little known predecessor to 2010's "Global Genocide". Unfortunately, fans seem to have missed the memo, and most have no idea that this release exists. I cannot stress how much of a concern this is, as this release is easily as good as, if not better, than the follow up.

The album is a dark, loathsome circuit of Robotic Disregard; Machinery breaking the fourth wall, and destroying itself, while issuing warnings to Humanity. Exactly what you'd expect from this genre. So much better than singing about Blood and Gore.

After the eerie intro, the first "proper" S:I track is "Plastyk Narcotik" - a fast paced number, with great Drum synths, and more importantly, that unique sound that Samet delivers. It sounds like Lasers being fired, and there's so much "Robot vs Human" going on here, that I almost wanna whip out some Asimov. Yet to hear some vocals, though...

"Experiences Has Died" (sic), is a more impressing number - it's slower, and has those chord progressions to make you feel that something important is going to happen. Indeed, towards the end, this track builds up, and it is more of an interlude, to anything else, yet fits in nicely as a fully-fledged album track.

"Religious Experiences" is one of my favourite tracks on the release (and in fact, the entire S:I Catalogue). It is everything Harsh EBM should be, not only is it fast as sin, with extreme and memorable hooks, but it is the first track on the release to feature full Vocals, and they are not disappointing!

An artist making this style of music has to be super careful not to end up making each song sound similar to the other - each should have memorable enough "Melody" to differentiate between the others. What I do love about this release is the innate ability to not only do that, but to include Interludes, Ambient moments, things to make you sit back and really absorb the concept being promoted. "Elektro:Terror" is nothing short of enjoyable, and the album continues on a tangent of pure genius at best, to foot-tapping at worst.

I have to give special note to three tracks here:
"Rise of the Death Machines" which (cool title aside) is one of my all time favourite tracks representing the genre. It is EVIL as you can imagine, with the synth so aggressive and deranged that I can feel my head melting under the intense scrutiny of a thousand Death-Cyborgs (worst term I've ever used in a review).

"Humachine" which is a much re-mixed favourite, and finally "Terroriztik Noize Machines", which is a disappointment, and the albums one weak point. It is intended as an outro, and is an extremely quiet track, with frequent clicks, glitches, and drones, but sadly, it does nothing to really interest me, and at Six Minutes, is far too long.

Regardless, this rare album is soon to be re-released, and about time!

Strong Points:
Memorable Tracks
Powerful Hooks
Clever and Successful Ideas
Putting Turkey on the Harsh EBM map is an achievement!
