Genre/Influences: Industrial-Metal, Cinematic.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Neo Bellum last year released the newest album of his main music project Psyclon Nine. This EP is featuring remixes from songs originally released at “Less To Heaven” plus a few new cuts.
Content: The new songs could have been originally released on the last album; a powerful, dark and tormented debut cut while both songs left are moving into the Cinematic side of “Less To Heaven”. Other tracks are remixes from “See You All In Hell”, “Money And Sex And Death” and “Catastrophic” all originally released on the album. Remixes have been accomplished by Suicide Commando, Skold, Jay E, Snakes Of Russia and Pitch Black.
+ + + : Among the new songs I especially recommend listening to the debut track “For The Night Is Dark And Full Of Terrors”; this is pure sound terror with a tormented sphere on top. This one sounds as Psyclon Nine at its best. Among the remixes I recommend both remixes of “Money And Sex And Death”; one by Jay E and the other by Suicide Commando.
– – – : From a very personal point of view the songs that were chosen to remix aren’t my favorite ones from the album.
Conclusion: This a nice bonus to the last album although not the best work I’ve heard from Psyclon Nine.
Best songs: “For The Night Is Dark And Full Of Terrors”, “Money And Sex And Death – Jay E Remix”, “Money And Sex And Death – Suicide Commando Remix”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
