Suicide Commando - Cause of Death:Suicide
Dark Electro, Harsh EBM After his big hit with the latest album 'Axis of Evil', which were placed in the top of all the alternative charts, Suicide Commando now releases his latest floor killer in some different forms. You can really say that there are some very well known bands who have their remixes on this single.

On this 34 minutes(!) long CD-single we find a club mix from Johan Van Roy himself and three remixes of the title track from bands like Feindflug, Converter and Grendel. You also find the b-side "Disposable Paradise" and one remix of the eight track Sterbehilfe from 'Axis of Evil', but here in Hocico's style.

Suicide Commando's own club version feels unfortunately a little bit too slow because the lacks of the explosive pressure which the original have. Feindflug have as usual manage to get the right feeling with their charismatic sound in their "Autointoxikations Mischung" remix of "Cause of Death:Suicide". The noise band Converter has done quite well with their "Try Again RMX"-version and their progressive beats are most satisfying. Still I have state that I think Grendel's remix goes highest and only that one can be compared to the original.

The new track "Disposable Paradise", which is exclusive for this single, does not have a new sound and it only reminds me of almost every track from the latest full length album. Still it's not bad track.

Johan Van Roy and Erk (the singer from Hocico) have found each other in their lifelong love for the harsh EBM and it is not that surprising that Hocico has a remix on this single as well. Erk did also perform as a guest artist together with Johan during his gig at M'era Luna a couple of weeks ago. The remix is very good and you are really able to hear the Mexican feeling behind the Belgian beats.
