Background/Info: Electro Fear is a Polish duo set up in 2012 and inspired by old horror movies. This album is their debut work featuring 11 songs plus 5 remixes. The digital version of the album has been released on Dark Tunes Music Group.
Content: The sound clearly reveals a dark-electro sound mixed with horror-inspired melody lines. It makes the originality of the band while at the other side you might notice influences reminding you of Suicide Commando.
+ + + : Electro Fear clearly tries to bring a personal touch to the dark-electronic style. They recovered their songs with spooky melodies and haunting effects, which clearly make the particularity of the band. You will also notice a few EBM-influences. The best part of the work comes at the end. The songs are more elaborated while the remixes section reveals great contributions from Cube-X, but especially Orbicide and Reactor7x.
– – – : Some of the spooky melodies are a little bit cheap. It also sounds like this album was made with less equipment or at least you’ll hear a debuting formation, which has to improve most aspects of their production. It says enough when the remixes are much more efficient than the original versions.
Conclusion: Electro Fear needs more experience and maybe a producer who can help them improving their sound. This is just a beginning, but not really a convincing one!
Best songs: “Profondo Rosso”, “My Revenge”, “Carnival Of souls – Reactor7x Slave Mix”, “Housze On Haunted Hill – Orbicide Remix”.
