Genre/Influences: Industrial-rave, dark-electro, industrial-EBM.
Content: This new EP by Seraphim System is meant as a teaser to the new full length album “Automaton Assisted Anihilation”.
Seraphim System remains a total sonic enigma as this formation likes to intermix multiple influences with each other than really belonging to an established music genre although I’m sure it will mainly appeal to lovers of dark-electro and industrial-rave music.
“This Is Invasion” rather sounds like a warning! The title song is a hard and merciless, pumping cut revealing elements of industrial, EBM, dark-electro and even dance-trance music with zombie-robotic vocals on top. Some elements remind me of early God Modulate, but let one thing be clear: this is a band with a unique sound and style.
The “Bass Invasion Version” digs a bit deeper into sound exploration resulting in some d’n’b elements getting the song pretty furious for its rhythmic element while globally speaking this version is more experimental as well.
The last two songs are devastating remixes by two genius sound architects. I think it’s the right song to get remixed by Noisuf-X and Jan L. once more takes the listeners by their bollocks! This remix is pure testosterone and dance energy. The typical hard kick of Noisuf-X and multiple sonic treatments will get you wild.
Iszoloscope injected a boost of industrial power to the song, but here again we can speak about a devastating remix. This song stands for total industrial-rave composed with unique sound treatments. You’ll find this remix also on the CD-format of the album.
Conclusion: “This Is Invasion” maybe is the best EP of 2015! This is a brilliant title song while both remixes stand for perfection!
Best songs: “This Is Invasion – Iszoloscope Remix”, “This Is Invasion – Noisuf-X Remix”, “This Is Invasion”.
