Genre/Influences: Techno-body, industrial-body-music.
Background/Info: “Corruption Of Form” resulted from the common efforts between two familiar artists from the Sonic Groove roster. Rhys Fulber (FLA, Delerium, Intermix ao) and Joey Gonzalez (Blush Response) composed four tracks available as 12” and digital format.
Content: The tracks are characterized by a powerful and danceable fusion between industrial music, EBM and techno. The hard kicks will get people into dance and some passages are even leading into trance. “Federal Republic” sounds a bit more experimental-like while the last cut (cf. “Threat Perception”) is a pure body-trance sensation!
+ + + : The different ingredients featured are in perfect balance, creating a heavy danceable effect. “Threat Perception” sounds as the cherry on the pie! It’s a sophisticated track revealing great effects, a slow progression and a trance-like climax.
– – – : I’m not convinced by the rather experimental “Federal Republic”, but this is just one cut from the tracklist.
Conclusion: This maxi is an interesting collaboration between two artists who reveal to be complementary. So it would be interesting to see them renewing this experience.
Best songs: “Threat Perception”, “Dissipate”.
