Genre/Influences: Dark-electro, EBM.

Background/Info: “Ikarus” is the second EP taken from the last and successful “Wastelands”-album. We get 2 versions from the title song, 2 new tracks and one revisited version of one of the band’s biggest hits ever “Tragic Hero”.

Content: “Ikarus” was one of the album’s best and most kicking songs. We get a “Single version” and a harsher “Crashed Mix”.

Both new songs are in the ‘violent’ and ‘merciless’ vein of the new album. Especially “Dogma” is a heavy sonic assault mixing dark-electronics and EBM. Last, but not least we get a “Neumix” of “Tragic Hero”. The main ‘new’ element is Chris L who’s now singing this great hit.

+ + + : “Ikarus” is the perfect EP! Next to a cool and efficient title song, this EP also reveals impressive B-side cuts. But I can’t speak about B-side cuts when listening to “Dogma” and even “The Last Stand” is a great piece of music. I especially like the irresistible EBM bass line running through “Dogma”. The updated version of “Tragic Hero” reveals a singer who now has perfectly integrated the Funker Vogt commando.

– – – : “Ikarus” is a solid EP without any real minus points. A must have for the fans!

Conclusion: The “Wastelands”-album already revealed there’s a fresh new breeze running through the Funker Vogt camp. They sound harder and more aggressive than ever before and that’s what this new EP seems to confirm.

Best songs: “Ikarus – Single Edit”, “Dogma”, “Tragic Hero – Neumix”.

Rate: (8½).
