Promo Tracks Electro, Industrial Ethan Fawkes Without breaking the chain of 50,000 amazingly good Electronic bands from Belgium, Ethan Fawkes is the latest DJ-come-Artist to make a splash on the underground scene. Not content with sporting the greatest facial hair since Jesus, Ethan Fawkes draws on a rich tapestry of musical experience to create this Half-Industrial, Half-Metal, fully-fledged Promotional Kit. A man with many mixing desks, many influences, and a Guitarist is always going to be a winning combination. The aggressive, hardcore-inspired "Why Accept you" is a stompy (sic) piece of hate, with a riff that actually rhymes me of bands like KMFDM and Ministry. One problem with the Belgian Electro scene is that no one wants to be a follower, and everyone wants to be the leaders of the next era. Ethan Fawkes is a possible contender for leader, and when he makes a track called "Let me Shout", You do exactly that. You listen. Without directly falling into a dictionary-perfect sub-genre, there is recognisable influence throughout this release to appeal to fans of everyone from Front 242 to Suicide Commando. The Psy'Aviah remix is well worth the time it takes to shut up and listen to Ethan. Just like you should. "I burn your Brain" is a good repetition track, which actually manages to do exactly what it says on the tin. The other track on here, "A Pain in My Head" is what I like to call a pulser (sic). Slow intro, pulsing rythym, and overall feeling of pressure building on your temples. Ethan has certainly tapped into the cranium of the target audience, and when a guy with his Metal background, and massive, massive beard plays you music, you feel compelled to listen. Good job I did! Another great new Belgian act. 450
