Genre/Influences: Industrial-Pop, Experimental.
Background/Info: Five years have passed since Entrzelle last album “Total Progressive Collapse”. Preparing the third full length album “Dust On A Razorblade” David Chamberlin delivers this EP as an appetizer.
Content: The title song is a well-crafted piece of intelligent Electronics, which once again reminds me of Haujobb. The “Club Edit” sounds as the title indicates; pure dancefloor driven Electro. Remixes have been accomplished by label mates Aesthetische and Neikka RPM. We also get another new song (cf. Tax On Modern Life”) and another new one (cf. “Let Me Be A Memory”) remixed by another label mate, Llumen.
+ + + : I have to admit Entrzelle is a project I lost touch with, but this EP is a stunning comeback. The title song is a great piece of music, revealing the intelligent approach in sound. It’s hard to define, but accomplished with cool sound treatments and a great atmosphere supporting the song. There’s also something to say about the rather clear production of the vocals. The “Club Edit” is a true attention grabber. Among the remixes I like the familiar bombastic drums created by Neikka RPM.
– – – : I was less convinced by “Tax On Modern Life” and Llumen’s remix, “Feeling Heavy These Days” being the true title song from the EP.
Conclusion: This EP stands for a great comeback of Entrzelle and I’m really wondering how the new album will sound like.
Best songs: “Feeling Heavy These Days – Club Edit”, “Feeling Heavy These Days”, “Feeling Heavy These Days – Neikka RPM Remix”.
