Homicide Industrial, Electro Suicide Inside Suicide Inside is the side project of Natasha and Alexey Protasov of Ambassador21. The album begins with "Goodbye My Love", Suicide Inside's interpretation of Maurice Ravel's "Bolero". The album according to the artists is intended to "showcase a sort of uncensored vision of love as mechanism of life and death.' So perhaps we should be thinking the movie 10, when the character played by Bo Derek asks "Did you ever do it to Ravel's Bolero?" Or maybe the great passion of the characters of "Les Uns et les Autres", showing a more painful love. However, I can still greatly feel Ravel's own conception of the work, the open air setting, and factory in the background. The music is still magnificently mechanical as was intended by Ravel and makes for a very exciting intro. "Snake H" has a pounding industrial beat, it's heavy but still very rhythmic and suitably provocative. Great hard electro music with excellent harsh powerful female vocals. Also a definite floor-filler with the club beat and slogan like female vocal combination. "Razor" continues in much the same hard and oppressive way. I like the heavy breakbeats which are almost acid in nature, and the vocals once again make for a great track. "Homicide" the title track follows, still much the same format but with much more melody. The slogan like vocals taking very much centre stage. "Go Zonkers" is somewhat of a variation on what has gone before, reminds me of rockabilly, making for what could be an insane club floor-filler. Natasha's vocals make it just 'mental'. "Till the End of Time" has a subtle change of direction once again with something of a synthpop sound, but they still manage to make it blend with those vocals. "Say Yes" is the final track, and finishes the album off hard and heavy and makes you want to say just that 'Yes'. Remixes: This review is of the limited edition with remixes. Remixes are supposed to be different and these are. Most notable are those by Implant, Aesthetische, Krystal System, Kant Kino, Acylum, Memmaker and Caustic. Aesthetische turned what was one of my least favorite tracks of the album "Learn to Swallow H" completely around. The "Call Girl" remixes by Acylum, Memmaker and Caustic are also worth mentioning specifically. Again it was not one of the outstanding tracks I mentioned in the main body of the review but has made for some excellent remixes. Conclusion: Leaving the intro apart which I find outstanding, Suicide Inside do hard and heavy best. But the softer sounds are by no means weak, and add depth as well as variation. Overall it's well constructed, powerful and the excellent aggressive and provocative female vocals give it an extra edge. Its' got dance beats, sex and everlasting love albeit of the sometimes at least painful variety. So if you the like the sound of that and the genre I thoroughly recommend it for you. 450
