CVRBON DECVY & ANTHONY [H] : O is for Orgasm (feat. Evilyn 13) : 7.5 out of 10
Continuing on their trend of sexually charged themes meeting epic cyberpunk beats comes CVRBON DECVY. A delicious slice of heavy dancefloor material complete with a pulsing bassline and classic dirty samples. Perhaps a bit too heavy on the spoken word vocals repetitiously saying “O is for Orgasm”, but can’t deny that solid framework and beat. This comes from the same producer of spankthenun, so it’s no surprise it’s a hit for me.
Pale Ash : Silence : 8 out of 10
Coming from the founder of EBM project Urban Matrix. Certainly a step in the right direction as far as side projects go; don’t expect the heavy basslines found within Urban Matrix on Pale Ash. Instead, it’s a dance soundtrack to the end times seen through the lens of dark disco, new wave, and a touch of new beat. This also marks the first time (I believe) we hear the voice behind the project as Pale Ash / Urban Matrix speaks on the track ‘Le Monde Est Vicieux’.
SØLVE : THE DARK & THE WICKED : 8 OUT OF 10
A somber and meticulously crafted bout of dark electronics. Meditative static noise rolls through most of the songs, as if discovering a long lost and cursed vinyl that should have never had the needle dropped on it again. Industrial, neofolk, a bit of classical; an all around delineating path for SØLVE that is wholly unexpected. A three-track piece perfect for night time relaxation, or a haunting, gothic approach to anyone living in an old, dimly lit Victorian mansion or castle.
Neon Insect : REWIRED : 8.5 out of 10
It feels like forever since Neon Insect released something, and yet it’s only been about four years since their excellent album “New Moscow Underground” dropped. Nonetheless, he’s back with a brand-new single titled ‘REWIRED’. Warped industrial beats in a noisey soundscape complete with glitched out aesthetics. Picking up and yet evolving from when last we met; guttural cries of post-apocalyptic torment. This already has me excited and I’m hoping some physical merchandise comes alongside the release of his forthcoming album.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
