Days Without Sleeping Industrial Eternal Nightmare German Eternal Nigthmare (Nils Sinatsch) released his debut album back in 2007 called 'Between The Worlds' with a more electronic sound than is presented on his latest album 'Days Without Sleeping'. With a load out of gritty and dirty guitars together with a very raw sound, it got a very 90's industrial sound to it. The problem is that the rawness of the sound makes it sound less well-produced, it almost has a demo sound to it to some of the tracks, landing far from my taste. I'm not saying everything needs to be overproduced or mixed until deconstruction; I'm just saying that the feeling of hearing something that was recorded in your mother's laundry room does not speak in favor, at least not in my book. There's a breakup in the industrial mass with the 5th track "Mothearth" with heavy influences of the Front Line Assembly sound from the end of the 90's. It?s easily the best track of the album. The vocals could use some work as well, since it sometimes sounds flat and ill fitted, not to say out of key. There's also this strange divide between the music and the vocals on some of the tracks. It's like when I'm singing to a track while listening to it, I know the melody and lyrics goes together, but singing sounds like it has been forced into fitting, like piece of a puzzle that has been cut slightly off in the machine. All and all it falls way off from my liking, with a tighter production and cleaner sound; it could have been a completely different story. Even though I don't have any problems of getting some dirty sound on my shoes, I'm not a fan of going knee-deep into the mud. 250
