Deadcell - The Dark Side Of Light (CD Album - Zero To Midnight Records)

Posted on 11/05/13

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Genre/Influences: Industrial-metal.

Content: Already the fifth studio album for this industrial-metal band from Eindhoven (NL) that has been active since 2006.

8 new songs are featured plus an extended version of the intro "Ode To Fuck" and the video version of the previously released song "Unchained" (from "The Heart Of The Sun"). Heavy guitar-riffs and martial drums are the basic ingredients of this album (the band decided recently to replace the live-drummer again with a drum computer).

This album opens strong with a short intro that has a lot of samples and drums that sound like a firing machinegun. "Dog Of War" is also the first video that is released from this album and sounds like a mixture between industrial-metal and industrial dance beats, in the KMFDM-style.
On the next song "Fear Heaven Burn The King" (not sure if this has anything to do with the recently new crowned King in Holland) we can hear a riff that reminded us of "Let's Go" from Ministry. The balance between the calm parts and heavy outbursts make this song one of the best of this new album.

Track number 4 (and also album-title) "The Dark Side Of Light" sounds awesome and is played in a very tight way, like industrial-metal has to be. The next 4 songs are not as up-tempo but are more bombastic. "My Sacred House" has a very rhythmic drum 'n bass loop while "(Been Through Hell) Live To Tell", "Die Tomorrow" and "L'Anima Finita" all sound very melodic.

Conclusion: We can hear that Deadcell's biggest influence through all their albums is still Ministry. On this album it became also clear that Marcus Bodine's voice sounds much better with some effects on it. The songs are not too long and there is a variety which keeps it interesting to discover all songs in one listening-session.

Best songs: "Ode To Fuck", "Dog Of War", "Fear Heaven Burn The King", "The Dark Side Of Light", "(Been Through Hell) Live To Tell".

Rate: (WH:8/9)WH.
