T.W.Z. - Serpent Column Portal
EBM You know that episode of Family Guy when Peter gets a tank and shot straight into Cleveland's house while he takes a bath and scream, the now classic, "No No No No Noooooo!"? Well, that's pretty much what I said over and over and over again during my listening to T.W.Z's new album 'Serpent Column Portal'.

T.W.Z's music is pretty dark and heavy industrial EBM that reminds me of bands like C-Drone-Defect and X-Fusion. The big difference though is that the later bands do it really good, but with T.W.Z I have some huge problems.

The singing is off beat, not particular good and you are only barely able to hear even the syllables. It doesn't get that much better with the female voice either and isn't working together with the music in a nice way. And while we are in the music department, I'm not to keen on that either, repetitive and boring.

I can't say that I'm disappointed, since I did not have any expectations at all. But am I impressed in any way? No, not at all.
