Railwrx – Emergence (EP – Railwrx)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: EBM.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: “Emergence” was released last year and is the debut work by Pittsburgh (USA)-duo Railwrx. This band is driven by George Cicci and Ross Beall who already worked together in the 90s under the  bLaCKlaNDs-moniker.

Content: “Emergence” sounds like good-old and intelligent EBM mainly inspired by the Canadian school. The work features 4 cuts which are mainly driven by menacing bass lines, low sound treatments and ghost-like atmospheres with similar vocals on top.

+ + + : This band -and especially for a debut-EP, took me by surprise by a sophisticated EBM format. The songs are well-crafted and definitely reminding me of Frontline Assembly.

– – – : I regret this is just an EP; I want to hear more stuff from these guys.

Conclusion: I can only but encourage EBM lovers to discover this promising band.

Best songs: “Emergence”, “Corridor”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

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.
