Last Seconds E.P Electro-Industrial V.e.N. Hungarian electro-industrial outfit V.e.N. (Virtual Explorer of Noise) have released a 5 track E.P. 'Last Seconds' consisting of four versions of the title track and a demo "Half Dead Life". The first three remixes of "Last Seconds" are all good in their own right, but for mine the "Industry Mix" is the best of the bunch. The fourth track is a fantastic instrumental demo "Half Dead Life" and shows where V.e.N. are musically. The last track is the first version of "Last Seconds". My only annoyance is the Sci-fi weapon firing noise (best description I could think of) in the 2013 edit. Citing Suicide Commando and early Grendel as influences, listening to the songs does remind you of both the bands mentioned but not in a copy cat kind of way. Clipped beats, rolling basslines, screamy vocals and the requisite orchestral stabs through the chorus make this a good listen. More a single than an E.P. as far as I am concerned, but I am interested in where V.e.N. goes from here. 3

I've been DJing for 30+ years and been lucky to have done Dj support for Assemblage 23, Grendel, Nachtmahr, Shiv-r, Psyche, Icon Of Coil, among others. As Digital Anodyne I've written and remixed, Retrogramme, Leaether Strip, Rational Youth, Psyche, Pluvio, Arkyus and so forth. I'm a music fan of electronic music with a thirst to hear new music as often as possible. Writing for Brutal Resonance for the last 5 years gives me the opportunity to share that passion. music//DJ\\remix
