Genre/Influences: Power-noise, industrial.
Background/Info: “Sacrifice” can be seen as a kind of sonic addendum to the new album “Ferocious”. The Norwegian sonic ogre Nichlas Shermann reveals four more exclusive cuts.
Content: The influences and sound formula haven’t changed. “Sacrifice” stands for a sonic tornado mixing pure and somewhat vintage-like power-noise together with a brutal and unpolished hardcore techno touch. It’s the kind of production creating a kind of gateway between both genres.
+ + + : “Sacrifice” stands for pure power-noise; the kind of sound that makes no compromises and just moves straight forward. The violent and distorted sounds are making no prisoners. I like the little ‘shamanic’ touch, which mainly emerges from “Bonus” and, which clearly brings hard-industrial and hardcore-techno together.
– – – : The sound formula used by Distortion Six brings nothing really new and rapidly becomes repetitive. Conclusion: Distortion Six is the kind of project that will mainly appeal for the power-noise die-hard fans. This EP is pure power while the album is more diversified.
Best songs: “Bonus”, “Erect”.
