Genre/Influences: Electro-industrial, industrial-EBM, cinematographic.

A.T.MödellBackground/Info: A.T.Mödell is a Spanish electronic band active since 2010. “Epic Nightmares” is the 4th album from the band. From their previous work you might have heard of the “Apocalyptophilia”-album released in 2013 by Danse Macabre.

Notice by the way that this album is available on the band’s homepage as a free download!

Content: The debut songs don’t totally convince although they reveal great industrialized sound treatments. It’s not exactly what I would call a common electronic style while the vocals are enraged and sometimes a bit into punk.

Quite progressively the work unleashes remarkable sound treatments and judicious arrangements revealing raw sound treatments and cold sequences. There also is a kind of electro-rock touch hanging over the work.

There’s a kind of intermezzo somewhere in the midst of the album, which reveals a cinematographic approach. After this kind of break A.T.Mödell sounds like unleashing all its demons and brings us power and energy. The tracks get harder and especially more efficient resulting in a few outstanding songs. It’s an efficient mix between raw electronics sometimes reminding me of Combichrist and a kind of dark-EBM approach.

+ + + : This band is not exactly reinventing power-electro and dark EBM, but features a few outstanding and well-crafted cuts. The industrial sound treatments are great.

– – – : The debut part of the album sounds a bit hesitant and not totally convincing.

Conclusion: A.T.Mödell is one of those ‘little thumbs’ active at the wider fields of dark-electro and EBM who can start competing with bigger bands. There’re a few brilliant songs at this album.

Best songs: “Enjoy Your Time”, “Proud Of Us”, “Razor Steel”, “Hypno-Murder”.

Rate: (DP:8)DP.
