REvenge Electro-Industrial DISTRUSTER This review was commissioned. However, it bears no weight on the score or decision. All reviews are written from an unbiased standpoint. Distruster is back with their brand-new single ‘REvenge'. This sultry duo is not afraid to explore their sexual nature as seen in their previously released double-single “Naked Violence // Aerobicide” which featured a rather filthy and dirty music video featuring ski-mask clad individuals making out covered in blood. That, and one of the members of the band goes by the name of Electro Slut. Fetishization, here we come. Anyway, I quite enjoyed their previous double and that trend is continuing with ‘Revenge’. This little number features quite a few guests including Ghost of G.G.F.H. on vocals and lyrics, Kaytwo of Neuroptix and Sleep Chamber, as well as Lucas Marchetti of Sound Together Studios providing mastering services.REvenge by DISTRUSTER The result from this collaboration of talent is another raw but slammin’ industrial romp through infected synthesizers. Quite a few old school vocal samples run rampant through the song chanting out religious propaganda and other such nonsense as experimental sound effects screech and crawl over the bassline. It’s as if you’re going through a haunted house of leftfield sound effects that never really cease or let up until the last second of the song trickle off into the abyss. I can’t say the vocal element was absolutely riveting as it borrows off of plenty of industrial tropes; digitally altered whisper screams that cannot be understood. Other than that, however, it’s a pretty fun industrial piece.  450

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.
