Ad Inferna - Trance n' Dance (MCD EP Aural Music)

Posted on 16/10/09

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Ad Inferna's self-described mix of harsh EBM and gothic metal is unusual and at times successful, and even when opening with a rendition of Visage's immortal "Fade To Grey", one immediately gets the gist of this motif. Asphodel's slightly accented presence drifts between half-spoken malevolence to black metal snarls, while propulsive bass and arpeggios find themselves entangled with sharp power chords and the aloof wail of their female vocalist. Though choppy riffs and explosive drumming dominate some moments like the speed metal infused "SM For SM", generally their marriage of EBM and rock is pretty even-handed. For example, Asphodel's baritone disdain is well paired with his operatic cohort in "Suicide Girl", and even its icy pianos and oscillating warbles find a nice synchronicity with their gruff guitarmanship. Concluded by four remixes, Beborn Beton's barren IDM mix is intriguingly minimalist, yet Reaper proves to have the best grasp on Ad Inferna's concept. With charged guitars buzzing aggressively alongside a ruthless bass punch, its pacing and syncopation is surgically precise. Overall, Ad Inferna's crossover is interesting, but as Reaper's sublime mix proves, it could still use a bit more polish.
