Feeding The Disease Harsh EBM, Aggrotech Decayed Reflection I don't know what's going on in the UK (Ironically), but Decayed Reflection (Ecko and Yasmin) aren't so much as jumping on the bandwagon, as much as they are riding it, and firing a Syringe full of Industrial formulae into the crowd. Let's face it, they've got the image, they've got the looks and the concepts. Do they have the sounds? Mutant-Tek are an upcoming label with some excellent artists under their cloak. Suffice to say, I've had my eyes on this 10 track album for a while... It's always great when Dark Electro does Intros, and "Prelude To Damnation" is no different. The Keyboards are gloomy and gothic (with a lower case "g"), and the chanting in the background is ethereal and mood-setting. Please, please be a sign of what's to come... As second tracks go, "Angels Crucifixion" has the title and the intro to make it stand out - immediately, I've clicked the "Love" button on my last.fm client, and this is as memorable and excellent as Xperiment and C-Lekktor. Ecko (Vocals,Synths and Production) has done an excellent job, these vocals are as distorted as hell, and sound as good as anyone leading the scene in 2011. Production? No problem! Very well done. Although I cannot differentiate between Yasmin's or Ecko's composition, it's fair to say that both of these artists have the merit required to make floor-filling harsh electro, and to think that they're fans trying to imitate their idols, is like calling a punch in the face a sexual act. (Insert fisting joke here). I'm not sure that 10 tracks and 34 minutes is sufficient for an album of this magnitude - I like my "00ntz" to last for nearly an hour, but that's pure selfishness on my part. Let's face it, I'm lapping this up, and i'm on track 3 "Nightmare". The duration of this will probably be my biggest criticism - this is as good as "Flat-Line" by Dawn of Ashes, and I'm already loading this album onto my play-list which I do NOT leave the house without. "But Nick!", I hear you cry. "You hype up a lot of albums, how can I take your word for this?" Well first of all, 10 Euros is a dirt-cheap price, and Disconexus are offering it for exactly that. Secondly, the Facebook page is laden with samples for you to listen to, and thirdly, I pull no punches - you've seen what I can write when I dislike something. If you need more convincing, look at the track titles : which of you into the harsher style of Industrial don't want to check out tracks entitled "Eyes of a Psychopath" and "Oblivion of Dark & Rust"? Jesus.Fucking.Christ. I didn't expect this. 450
