Background/Info: Devilsight is a Mexican dark-electro band that was set up as a way to exorcize ‘all the unjust things happening in their country’. After 2 self-released digital EP’s they got signed to Advoxya Records unleashing their debut full length featuring 10 songs plus 2 remixes.
Content: Devilsight sounds hard and into the familiar sound formula of dark-electronic music. I imagine this band as one of the most talented and promising ‘electro students’ at the high-school of (h)el(l)ectro where they got renowned teachers like Hocico and C-Lekktor.
It’s not only because of the songs sung in Spanish language, but still because of this particular sound DNA that characterizes Mexican band sin the genre. The songs are well-crafted and mainly carried by haunting melody lines. The furious vocals totally fit to the music. I also noticed a cool instrumental track featuring German samplings.
We get 2 bonus tracks, which are remixes and I here especially have to mention a terrific remix of “La Ceguera”, which was an EP-title song. The other remix was made by Stahlnebel & Black Selket who introduced Devilsight to their label.
+ + + : The power, rage and carrying melody lines are the main strength of this fully accomplished debut album.
– – – : This a stereo-typical composition in genre, which suffers from a lack of innovation.
Conclusion: Devilsight definitely belongs to the most promising new-signed bands of the Advoxya roster. This is a successful debut revealing multiple a**-kicking songs.
Best songs: “La Ceguera – Remix”, “Del Cartel”, “Renacer”, “Extranos En La Oscuridad F. Antigeno”, “Luna”.
