Sonik Foundry – Explosive (CD – Nilaihah Records)Posted on 28/07/12
I was already convinced and conquered by the previous album “Parish Of Redemption” by Sonik Foundry, but this new CD surpasses my expectations.
“Explosive” seems like announcing the re-birth of this band. While I really enjoyed the previous work, I think Sonic Foundry still was in the imaginary grip of their influences. “Explosive” sounds more personal, like the accomplishment in the quest of finding their own sound. The style of music remains pretty EBM. The album is dominated by impressive leads. Sonik Foundry are masters in the writing of heavy, carrying leads. The only little regret I have is that most of these leads are quite similar in sound making the songs sounding a bit too similar. But it doesn’t really hurt when it’s kicking don’t you think?
“Explosive” totally stands for its content. We’re getting a non-stop number of cool songs. From start to finish, Sonik Foundry moves into pure and powerful body music. No time for an intro, but the impact of a sonic bomb that directly comes to explode in your ears. It’s impossible to give you all the songs, but there’s especially one that caught my attention as the absolute hit. I’m referring to “Fuse”. This is pure power and pure joy!
This song also brings me to speak about the unavoidable last part of the album featuring 3 remixes. Assemblage 23 did a noticeable and more future-pop/VNV Nation remix of “Fuse”. I especially enjoyed seeing an artist like Tom Shear remixing this band.
“Explosive” stands for the total accomplishment of Sonik Foundry’s work. This is the kind of album a band might be proud of!
