Voicians - A Matter Of Time (Part I)
Electrorock, D'n'B Those that know me, know that I am a big fan of the Electro/Rock Hybrid genres, and am always on the lookout for bands that can master the art of blending these two sounds into a coherent mix.

Bands like Celldweller, Blue Stahli and MiXE1 get my pulse racing everytime, and if like me you enjoy these bands, then Voicians are definitely one to check out.

Voicians is the solo project of Dan Voicians from Stuttgart in Germany, well known for his remixes of Celldweller, 5ubcultur3 and Komor Kommando, and in this EP entitled 'A Matter Of Time (Part 1)' he stamps his own identity onto the Electronic Rock world.

Featuring six brand new tracks, two remixes and a collection of instrumentals and demos as extras, this EP kicks some serious ass!

Featuring a blend of Orchestral, Electro, Rock, Dubstep, Drum and Bass and good old fashioned pop, Voicians has left us with a real humdinger of an EP.

The overall feel of the album is of an urban Celldweller mixed with a hint of grunge in the choice of guitar tone and riffage, with a wonderfully melodic vocal performance underpinning the outstanding song-writing and Production that is on display.

Stand out track "Prayer" is as good as anything you will hear coming out of Klayton's own work this year, with the frantic drum and bass rhythms thundering along backed with sparkling synths opening the track up beautifully over a roaring base of energetic guitar-work.

At times the choice of synth sounds, and vocal melodies hint at an anime influence, and I am reminded of soundtracks to games like F-Zero (Older readers will know what I am talking about).

To conclude then, this is a stonker of a little EP, and if you have any interest at all in Electronic Rock this HAS to be checked out.

This is an artist that I will be watching with interest going forward.
