Void Kampf - Severe Mais Juste
EBM 'Severe Mais Juste' is the debut album from French EBM act Void Kampf after releasing three CDr releases in 2001, 2003 and 2006. Part from the 14 original tracks, there's also six remixes to choose from.

I like a bit of raw sound in my EBM, but I do need that rawness of be of quality and unfortunately you will not find it here. The sound seems muffled and the vocals seem to be of key most of the time. There would be a lie to say that you need to be a great singer to be the singer in an EBM act, but this is not good enough.

Even though it is body, the album feels slow and un-progressive. There's really only "EBM Posers" that I remember from the album, the rest pretty much goes by without any notice. The remixes is better though, without saying that much. The Signal Aout 42 remix of "EBM Posers" is pretty okay, as well as the "Spiegel Mann" remix from Darkmen and the "Rock The Club" remix from Autodafeh, but they are still far from something to be excited about. The only track is really enjoy is Steril's remix of "Karmeliet", that one have some punch in it.

No, EBM still need some class and quality for me to fancy it. Still, I must say that I really enjoy the cover art though, one of the best of 2010 so far.
