Wynardtage - The Grey Line
Dark Electro, Aggrotech Wynardtage your typical German EBM band with nothing really new to add except a really bad female vocalist without any passion for the music or the songs she's featured on. I would like to summarize it like that, but I have to write some more indebt info about this CD right? 'The Grey Line' is an album that reminds me quite a lot of old Wumpscut, but worse.

The production is awful and the vocals are low and so distorted that you can't even hear in which language they are sung/screamed in. I like the idea of having both distorted and unedited vocals on songs, but only if the vocals are good, in this case they are not, "Leaving" is a good example of this. Also if you're going to have a guest vocalist, try and find someone who really enjoys making music and have a passion for it. "The Grey Line" is a song that feels much like a Blutengel rip-off but its so much worse, feels very uninspired and dull.

I can't really say anything positive about this album, the idea might have been good, but in the end it just falls flat.
