Genre/Influences: Dark-Electro, Industrial.
Background/Info: EVVLDVRK1 is an American solo-project driven by Aaron Henderson. He’s already been involved with music for more than ten years and self-released previous works under other monikers. “Total Destruction” features eight instrumental songs and seven sung ones.
Content: “Total Destruction” sounds like an unpolished Dark-Electro composition driven by simple, melodic, leads, pumping kicks and harsh vocals on top. Seven songs have been also featured as instrumental edits. The single cut left is an instrumental piece driven by Industrial-Techno influences.
+ + + : The work might appeal to fans of Mordacious; there’s a similar vibe running through the work and especially the simple melody lines carried by heavy kicks are quite noticeable. “Your Own Worst Enemy” is a cool track while there’s also something to say about the Techno-Industrial driven “Total Destruction”.
– – – : The instrumental edits have been added for those who don’t like harsh vocals. But
I’m definitely missing an essential element when listening to a rather simplistic, instrumental Dark-Electro format. The songs indeed are missing elaboration. I’m afraid it has all been composed with a lack of equipment.
Conclusion: A very few songs are showing certain potential but EVVLDVRK1 has to gain in professionalism.
Best songs: “Total Destruction”,“Your Own Worst Enemy”.
