Pathological Electro-Industrial The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse are back with a new single and follow-up to their debut 'Parasite'. In case you missed our review of 'Parasite', I can provide a brief introduction to the band: they are three gentlemen by the names of Chris (The Creeping Man), Tom (Divider Line), and Jason Herrboldt. Their goal in life is to make electro-industrial dance music suited for underground clubs. From what I have heard on their debut single, they succeeded. Their new song, 'Pathological', is more ambitious by not only providing the original mix, but an extended dub mix as well.The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse · Pathological PreviewThe Seven Whores of the Apocalypse do not change up their vocal style for this single, which is a good thing. The hushed whispers found on the song are none-too intrusive and provide an eerie mark to the otherwise bouncy song. While on their debut single 'Parasite' I found the vocals and music at odds with one another, I feel as if The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse have remedied that complaint. I feel as if they compliment one another with ease and don't sound out of place paired together. The music is the main draw, to me, however. Once again displaying a natural knack for electronic beat making, The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse manages to make a five-and-a-half minute song more than just a chorus, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, verse ordeal. What we're given is a song that's broken into various parts. For example, at the three-minute mark the song breaks out italo-disco sounding beats for only a brief moment, before jumping back into dingy EBM territory. It's fascinating how the project is able to move through so many different layers and effects while maintaining a similar sound that keeps 'Pathological' together. The extended dub mix is also available, but out of the two I preferred the original version. The dub mix sounds stripped down and atmospheric. While not entirely a bad thing, what I loved about the original song just wasn't here in full-force. So while The Seven Whores of the Apocalypse manage to kick up their production on the original version of the single, the dub mix is okay. Nonetheless, I can't sit here and tell you to not listen to this song; the project is onto something and it's wonderful. Seven out of ten!  450

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
