Krystal System – Rage / Limited Edition (DCD Album – Alfa-Matrix)Posted on 28/04/13
Content: Krystal System strikes back with their 3rd full length to date. This Parisian duo impressed me from start to finish releasing the amazing debut album “Underground” and confirmed their strong potential on “Nuclear”. “Rage” sounds like a promising title and reflects the essence of the new songs.
Krystal System sounds more cyber-punk than ever before. There where their previous releases were hiding some kind of electro-clash influences, which were mixed with the heavier guitar riffs “Rage” sounds more guitar-orientated. “Rage” directly moves into the main spirit of the record, which is a furious, merciless and uncompromised cyber-punk sound carried by harsh guitars. Did Bonnie and 7 (the 2 members) got raped by a bulldozer? One thing is for sure they became harder than ever before, sometimes losing their magic electro treatments that made them that successful. “Rage” is a kind of sonic stream train that has lost any control. It comes to hit you hard right in the face on their hardest pieces entitled “Paradise”, “I Wanna Be” and “Parasites”. The last mentioned song even moves on the edge of metal music.
Another part of the album reminds me of their earlier work. The guitar parts still are extremely powerful, but the electronics are more explicit and important here. “Hurricane” is a great song in the genre, but I’ll also mention “La Lame Dans Ta Main”. A few other songs reveal more balanced electro- and guitar parts. “The Next Light” is a quite noticeable track in the genre while “Fantôme” sounds pure cyber-punk minded.
Bonnie’s vocals are moving from a wild and enraged witch-style of singing to very sensual parts. Most of the songs are sung in English, but her French Mother-tongue is quite efficient on a few other songs.
The limited edition features a bonus disc with 10 songs. This is an opportunity to get a nice cocktail of remixes and a few exclusive songs. The originality of this extra disc is that Krystal System took care for all of the remixes and new songs.
The style of music doesn’t sound that different. We get a new heavy assault made by guitar and electronics. We get a new crazy, but efficient exposure of the Parisian punks resulting in a few more great songs. “Hurricane – Hurry, Hurry” sounds pretty cold and devastating. The new song “Walk With The Undead” is a quite noticeable song for a possible wink to Sheep On Drugs. Another new song entitled “A Nos Vies Passées” brings us back into pure sound aggression. “Sanctuary – Unbroken One” is a kind of look back to the previous album transforming the original version of the song into the last heavy assault of this limited edition.
Conclusion: “Rage” stands for pure power accomplished by pure contemporary punks! They don’t repeat themselves, but sound like raping, hitting and terrorizing anything that crosses their path.
Best songs: “The Next Light”, “Hurricane”, “La Lame Dans Ta Main”, “Fantôme”, Hurricane – Hurry, Hurry”, “Walk With The Undead”, “Sanctuary – Unbroken Done”.
