Genre/Influences: Industrial, industrial-trance.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Speed Injektion is a side-project of Alien Vampires members Nysrok Infernalien and Nightstalker. “Death’s Dance” has been inspired by the Covid-19 pandemic while the sound of this project is dancefloor-orientated.
Content: If alien vampires already took me by surprise with their overwhelming dark-electro & aggrotech sound, Speed Injektion moves towards a total sonic cataclysm! The opening title-song is a merciless fusion between industrial- and trance music. The track has been progressively built up, but the danceable vibes are constant. The other tracks coming up are still mixing influences, but also evoke the rough techno side of Empirion (cf. “Crept Into Your Thoughts”) while “Evil Wins Anyway” has something groovy-industrial like. This is also the perfect club song! The song “King Of entropy” features Hungarian metal singer Attila Csihar.
+ + + : Don’t expect those Italians composing ordinary industrial-techno music; the compositions are well-crafted and masterly produced. They reveal great sound treatments, which have something rough and clearly menacing. The title song is an absolute masterpiece for the way it has been built up and sound treatments that have been used. But “Crept Into Your Thoughts” featuring a few harsh vocals, “Apocalypse (Has Arrived)” and “Evil Wins Anyway” all are sublime tracks as well.
– – – : I don’t see real minus points at this EP.
Conclusion: Speed Injektion takes off with a phenomenal and overwhelming debut EP. This project has the potential to gain a similar reputation as Alien Vampires.
Best songs: “Death’s Dance”, “Crept Into Your Thoughts”, “Evil Wins Anyway”, “Apocalypse (Has Arrived)”.
