Blasted – Anvil (Vinyl 12” – Depth.Request)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Industrial-techno.

Background/Info: Blasted is an Italian producer who already has released a few numbers of EP’s. He now joined hands together with Depth.Request to unleash this new work. Notice by the way the digital edit features one extra song.

Content: There clearly is a new techno-format that never stops to grow. Blasted belongs to this industrial-techno movement, which you can also linked to a dark-techno approach. The tracks are hard and arousing, leading the listener into a hypnotic sensation.

+ + + : I fully enjoy this industrial-techno approach, which sounds hard, dark, a bit unpolished and ultra-danceable. It’s a tough production made with raw sound treatments and resulting in a great title track.

– – – : “Anvil” is a cool cut, but maybe not a potential hit. I like the sonic ideas running through this work although I’ve already heard more convincing productions in the genre.

Conclusion: Blasted is a fully appropriate name for this rough and haunting industrial-techno format.

Best songs: “Anvil”, “Jawbreaker”.

Rate: (6½).

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
