Freakangel – The Faults of Humanity (DCD – Alfa Matrix)Posted on 01/09/10
Welcome to the darker side of the act suicidal romance, and when I say darker I mean dark! From the very intro one notices this is very different from it's parent project which is a good thing. Quite possibly this is where God Module should be as opposed to becoming more campy. Each track is full of excellent programming and sounds the kicks no matter the BPM are all brutal with great bass runs and synths to keep the listener going. Every track up to the remix part of the CD is filled to the brim with great energy from the synthlines. The CD kicks in smacks you in the head and stays fluid the whole way through with all the tracks. Where the parent project is more of a loving aspect this side is angry, abrasive and just plain old mean which is what you want in your terror EBM. Maybe a bit too late to catch the terror train, maybe not where as some acts are getting old hat Freakangel is a breath of fresh air and new life. Not just that but these weaker new acts from this sub-genre can get an idea how to do it right, maybe some of the older acts that strayed like one mentioned previously will get it back together and on the right track. Now on to the remixes featured on the 2nd disc of which a varied list of acts participated in. We didn’t get real famous names, but quite promising and young talents like Psy’Aviah, C-Lekktor, Angels On Acid, Shiv-R, Mummy Hurt My Head, Centhron, or yet Kant Kino. Each remix has a different feel from electro pop to rhythmic noise, most of the remixes are great some, not so much and shouldn't have even participated in remixing. All in all this is quite possibly the best terror EBM release this year!

You have sampling and sampling. In the industrial scene it's quite common to sample quite a lot but most bands re-use the sample in such way that the original source is unrecognizable. Not so with the Italian hard style duo Clockartz who nicked a complete chorus from the a cappella version of the track 'Virtual Gods' by Belgian electropop act Psy'Aviah for their new single. (...)
