Azlack – Metal Knight (Digital EP – Nu Body Records)
Genre/Influences: Techno-body, minimal EBM.
Background/Info: Lucas Ezequiel Luna is an Argentine producer active since 2009. This “Metal Knight”-EP might be an opportunity to discover this artist.
Content: “Metal Knight” is a phenomenal track, which appears to be a sonic hybrid between techno- and electronic body music. It also has something industrial-like, but the bass line will for sure appeal to true EBM-lovers.
We next get remixes by Ethan Fawkes, Son Of Chaos, Raul Parra and Grand Chaos. All the remixes inject a different touch to the song, but I especially want to mention the hard-EBM driven remix of Spanish producer Raul Parra.
+ + + : The title song left me breathless; this is the ultimate symbiosis between techno and EBM. The bass line is sensational, but there also is a hard industrial sound treatments, which will drive you mad. The remixes are great, but especially the one by Raul Parra.
– – – : This is the kind of EP that left me a bit frustrated because I want to hear more songs from Azlack.
Conclusion: There are artists you simply have to discover otherwise you just will have missed something essential! Azlack is pure sonic ecstasy!
