This is Dramacore Goth, Industrial Evestus Evestus hails from Talinn/Estonia and is a one man band that mix a bit too much of everything. 'This is Dramacore' is the third album from the band (he actually calls it LP in the promo package) and consists of twelve tracks. First off I would like to say that the promo package I received was very impressive and one could see that he put a lot of effort into make it. With that said lets go over to the music shall we? As you might know I usually pick out three tracks that I really like a lot. But on this release there aren't any that I like a lot. 'This is Dramacore' is a album that is a bit too weird for my taste actually, it sounds a bit like drum and bass combined with American industrial metal influences like Nine Inch Nails and top that off with some Hip-Hop and Rap influences of the vocals, also a bit of Goth. I know Evestus wants every album to sound different and he wants to be original , but there is a fine line between original and going too far and just make it weird and boring. Yes the production is good and the vocals sound clean but the mix of styles is too much and becomes hard to listen to, at least for me who prefers pretty straight forward stuff. In some case more isn't better, less is. In this case I would seriously recommend it. This kind of music has a powerful sound , but you need to be in a specific mood to enjoy it. The main problem I had with the tracks is that they feel a bit repetitive even with the guitars and orchestral parts. This is not a bad album if you like this music, it's just not for me. 350
