`Xiescive – Nexus (CD – Nilaihah Records)Posted on 26/01/12
Xiescive is a rather new project set up by Trevor Weeks who was previously involved in Boundless and Symboint. You might remember both projects that were signed on DSBP. After a CDR released in 2010 (cf. “Vs”) Xiescive has now definitely been put on the rails releasing this official debut CD on Nilaihah Records.
“Nexus” brings harsh doses of dark-electro and EBM. Harsh and enraged vocals are directly gripping you by the throat. The pumping and merciless rhythm assaults will for sure terrorize the dancefloors. But in the end I’ve to say that Xiescive doesn’t really bring anything new. “Nexus” is based on stereotypes in the genre. That hasn’t necessary to be seen as a negative point. The songs are quite efficient, but especially “Waking Vision” and “Bloodwork”, which both are my favorites kick ass. “Bloodwork” might even evoke some good-old Funker Vogt souvenirs. The link with Funker Vogt makes sense on a few other cuts like “Just A Dream” and “Sex, Drugs & Electro” although in a less powerful format.
The last part of the CD features the usual remixes. Among the 4 remixes I was deeply impressed by the pure, but terrific “Cutoff:Sky Rmx” of “Time To Die”. This is the kind of song that will get any dark-electro audience in motion.
I can’t say that I’m holding the best Nilaihah release from 2011 in my hands, but let’s keep this band in mind. It all appears like there’s much more potential in it.
