Genre/Influences: EBM, dark-electro.
Background/Info: Two years after the “Humanterror.Com”-album Polish duo Anti-Terror strikes back with an EP (kind of mini-album) featuring 6 new songs.
Content: The sound remains driven by typical EBM-elements and dark-electronics. Deep, resonating sound and solid bass lines have been mixed with cold synths. The ghost-like vocals are matching with the music.
+ + + : Anti-Terror clearly confirms to be a band with an interesting potential. Their music doesn’t bring anything new, but the tracks are well-crafted and efficient. I like their icy sound treatments and the permanent mix between EBM and dark-electro. This band clearly belongs to this DIY generation and clearly don’t spare any effort to release a professional-like production like the artistic digipak format.
– – – : The spooky vocals are cool for a while, but I sometimes miss a little bit more passion and rage in it.
Conclusion: Anti-Terror is a band without real surprises, but composing cool EBM-like songs.
Best songs: “Rat Race”, “Sick Soul”, “Next Generation”.
