Too Dead To Die - Murder On The Dancefloor
Dark Electro, Aggrotech Eehmmm, this is seriously released on a label like Out Of Line? This perfectly proves the German dark scene has no idea anymore to stem the tide of dwindling sales and visitors and throws everything they can find to the audience in the hope something sticks. The idea is probably something like: "Hey, lets try this Russian mediocre version of Aesthetic Perfection! The kids love Aesthetic Perfection! They will love this as well!". Completely forgoing the fact that Daniel Graves actually has talent. This guy has none.

The only thing which is good on this album is the rather clean production. It really helps to show the rather unoriginal choice of softsynths and sounds. The songs are something of a mix of electro and aggrotech but mostly lacking in actual good songwriting. Songs don't stick and it all sounds like it has been thrown together. The vocals are mediocre at best and the lyrics are filled with cliches. Apart from Aesthetic Perfection this dude also tries to emulate Faderhead, but the result is the same: He only manages to reach a level far under the worst Faderhead songs.

There are many reasons why the audience has been turning its back on the dark scene, but releasing crap like this is a big contributor. Out Of Line should really get their A&R sense back together, throw out this garbage, and sign some decent original artists instead.
