Background/Info: Thomas Gäbhard who’s mainly known as the driving force behind Arcana Obscura -and running Consequence Records, started with the side-project Disastrous Din in 1995. Several full lengths were released but “Hell On Earth” is the first released studio work in more than ten years.
Content: The opening title track is a hard and dark piece of EBM-driven music with enraged vocals on top. Both cuts left are instrumentals carried by bombastic arrangements and some Industrial sound treatments.
+ + + : Disastrous Din strikes back with a heavy title song which will definitely appeal for lovers of dark EBM. I especially like the bombast of the production.
– – – : It would have been cool to get vocals on all the songs.
Conclusion: “Hell On Earth” is a cool title song while other songs sound like B-sides.
Best songs: “Hell On Earth”.
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.
