The Horrorist – Fire Funmania (CD Album – Things To Come Records)Posted on 13/03/13
Genre/Influences: Minimal EBM, electro-technoid-experimental.
Content: Oliver Chesler has just unleashed his latest full length on which he exorcizes his minimalistic electronic ideas. The Horrorist is a project that doesn’t need a further introduction. Chesler is a renowned musician and composer who has been often linked with hardcore, techno, EBM, electroclash ao. I think it simply proves he first of all is an electronic music addict dealing with multiple electro influences.
“Fire Funmania” delivers an interesting exposure of this multi-influenced and inspired arsenal of electronics. The fans already got the opportunity to hear some EP’s preceding this album. I’m thinking for example of the heavy “Haywire”-EP. Chesler holds on his trademark made of great, minimal body bass lines, raw technoid and analogue sounds and a typical 80s touch. From the first notes of this album he brings the listener into his specific and revisited EBM-core. The Horrorist also reminds us of his particular sense of humor like illustrated on “Kissing Anne” on which he makes the rhyme ‘swastika, America, Ikea’.
After a solid debut, we get the very surprising “The Darkness That Was Meant To Be”. This song is a kind of acoustic guitar ballad, which reminds me of early Dead In June. “Haywire” coming up next moves back into heavier fields reminding me of electro pioneers like Suicide and even Throbbing Gristle. The lyrics of this song are decadent and like illustrating a kind of “Trainspotting” made in New York.
The songs remain simple, but damn efficient. The Horrorist is a sound wizard confirming his genius on “Starving For You”. The 2nd part of the album features a few more solid pieces. The EBM minimalism and technoid treatments are once again emerge, resulting in songs of pure lust. Some of the lyrics are again featuring some cynical –or simply funny parts.
Conclusion: The Horrorist has deployed his entire battery of electronic creativity which resulted in a new fascinating and diversified opus.
Best songs: “Kissing And Burning”, “Heart Of Steal”, “Haywire”, “The Man Master”, “Enter The Sex Game”.
