Genre/Influences: Experimental, industrial.

Background/Info: I didn’t find that much information about HΣRMΣS, which seems to be a new project.  

Content: The work features 2 songs and 2 remixes. The work of HΣRMΣS is driven by an experimental taste mixed with some industrial influences and driven by linear rhythms. The track “Cirrosis Mental” also features a kind of horror-like vocals. The other track is somewhat bombastic and revealing a kind of anarchistic industrial style.

Among the remixes you’ll find Samuel Kerridge.

+ + + : The main strength of this artist is the very personal approach in sound. It’s a sound you can’t really compare with other artists and that’s always positive as it reflects creativity. From both tracks I definitely prefer “Cirrosis Mental”, which has something anguishing. The remix by Samuel Kerridge is even more dark and staggering.

– – – : The B-side track “Ayer Era La Muerte” and its “Caos + Inmediatismo Remix” can’t convince me.

Conclusion: HΣRMΣS clearly stands for an unusual industrial format. I can’t say that I was impressed, but it however reveals an interesting approach.

Best songs: “Cirrosis Mental”, “Cirrosis Mental – Samuel Kerridge Remix”.

Rate: (6½).
