Transmission Started Electro, Electro-Industrial Electroniak I really love when electro releases turns up from places you ordinary don't expect them. We get releases from Germany, Belgium, Sweden, England, Mexico, United States and that is what we expect them to be, so when a release turns up from the capitol of Peru, Lima, I'm a happy camper. Personally, I hate to travel. I love to see and experience new places, but I love the comfort of my home even more, so this is my way to experience the flavours of the world, through dark electronic music. For being a South American release, it has a very German/Belgian sound to it. Modern Old School influenced Dark Electro. It's to modern to be compared to Orange Sector, yet to Old School to be compared to Hocico and their likes and it never gets as dirty as Suicide Commando either, it's cleaner than that. The music is what Electroniak gets absolutely right. It's a high speed chase on a motorway with some quirks. Often high tempo, hard beats, nice melodies and a wide soundscape. Check out the tracks "Live to Dance", "The World That You Destroyed", "Don't Let Fear Win", "Last Word" and you will see what I mean. However, what do need work is the vocals. I have no troubles with dialects and often think they are part of the charm, but if you do, you need to stay off this album. Often it's quite alright, but every now and then it's hard to realize that it is actually English words you are hearing. The vocals themselves though are flat and not that great, and it takes away from much of the experience. The music is fine, but by spending most of the effort trying to up the vocals on the next release, Electroniak could be quite the surprise. "Live to Dance" and "Don't Let Fear Win" are great tunes and many of the other tracks in this 10 track digital release are actually pretty good. I just wish the vocals where up to speed. Still, probably worth your time checking out on Bandcamp or iTunes. 450
