.com/kill - .com/kill (CD Album – Accession Records)

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Genre/Influences: Dark electro-pop, EBM.

Content: Behind .com/kill hides the frontman of Diary Of Dreams and frontman of Accession Records Adrian Hates and Gaun:A (also involved in Diary Of Dreams). We might speak about a secret project as .com/kill started to work behind the scenes since 1996. Because of the success of Diary Of Dreams it was not that easy to come out with this new band, but the songs have been finally achieved and are ready to unleash.

I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but “.com/kill” definitely is a very promising debut. The opening part of the album features elements of EBM although I’ve to say that .com/kill is not exactly what I can call an EBM formation. It’s just about an influence that has been merged with heavy crashing percussions, melancholic tunes and sophisticated electro treatments. “Das Blendwerk” illustrates the complexity in sound making all the difference with the typical and average 4x4 EBM-band. The melancholia and of course the vocals of Adrian Hates clearly reminds me of Diary Of Dreams, but .com/kill clearly sounds different. The writing is much more electro-orientated and especially when some extra pop influences are joining in. .com/kill sounds a bit like exorcizing musical ideas, which couldn’t be matched with Diary Of Dreams.

A song like “Who:ah!” even evokes some good-old 80s souvenirs while globally speaking it again sounds inspired by EBM elements. Some of the songs are moving into heavy, bombastic passages lead by raw melody lines. The melodies are mainly cold, but a very essential aspect of the production. You can’t get away from Adrian Hates’ typical timbre of voice, but I’ve to say that he also sings a much harder way on a few songs. “.com/kill” features 9 alluring songs. I can’t really say that there’s one absolute hit among the tracklist although multiple cool cuts. I think that “Das Blendwerk”, “Who:ah!” and “Out Of Control” are the most suited for the clubs.

Lyrically, the songs are not that elaborate like on Diary Of Dreams. We get a few sentences mainly dealing with the darker side of life like the simple, but clear question running through “Who:ah!” ‘Who will die for me?’. Hates is alternating between his Mother language and English.

Last, but not least we also get a video clip of “Monster Divine” as a little bonus. The clip is already posted on Youtube. It’s not my favorite song of the album while the storyboard of the clip maybe is the only weak point of this CD. It features a man dressed like a bear (referring to the front cover of the album?) entering into a bar where he’s getting drunk, crushing the guitar of a musician on the ground and finally pissing on the feet of a cop before finally getting arrested.

Conclusion: It all appears like .com/kills was waiting for too long in an imaginary antechamber of Hates’ mind and it would have been a shame to not have released this album. This is a cool electronic exploration from an artist we didn’t exactly expect to switch from Diary Of Dreams into pure electronics!

Best songs: “Das Blendwerk”, “Who:ah!”, “Out Of Control”, “Freaks Like Us”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.
