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

Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop, Future-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Ego Bliss is a Mexican solo-project set up in 2019 by Mario Monk (also involved with Para/Normal). He claims to be inspired by Electro-Pop and EBM. This is the debut-release featuring eleven songs.

Content: After a dreamy debut song, the album rapidly moves towards a rather classical mix of Electro/Future-Pop. The songs are pretty danceable and refined, but still featuring darker passages. The vocals are sometimes half spoken – half sung. This is an album appealing for fans of Frozen Plasma, NamNamBulu ao.

+ + + : Ego Bliss accomplished a noticeable debut-album. The production is mature, featuring well-crafted songs with delicate sound treatments. It’s a fully enjoyable album, which even features a potential hit entitled “The Savior”. This song is carried by a solid bass line and robotic vocals.

– – – : I’m sometimes missing a bit more passion in the production of the vocals.

Conclusion: Ego Bliss sounds like a promising newcomer to the wider fields of Electro-Pop music.

Best songs: “The Saviour”, “2 Victims Of Deceit”, “The Darkest Hour”, “Strange Belief”.

Rate: (7½).

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.
