Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Suicide Commando strikes back with a special EP. He reworked two ‘old’ songs from his repertoire and added two new cuts as well. “Deine Herz, Meine Gier” was originally released in 2001 at the EP “Love Breeds Suicide” while “Blood In Face” got released in 2000 at the legendary album “Mindstrip”. Notice by the way the CD format has been limited to 999 copies.
Content: “Deine Herz, Meine Gier” was a kind of B-side song from the EP “Love Breeds Suicide”, but it became an instant dancefloor killer. This “Reanimate 2020”-version has been boosted and adapted into some modernism while holding on the original ingredients of the song. “Blood In Face” is a song I had forgotten, the “Mindstrip”-opus featuring much more famous tracks. This reworked song sounds more into an atmospheric perspective even revealing a cinematographic synth part.
About the new songs, “Bunkerb!tch” is a hard-hitting and enraged new cut, which will not miss its target when played at the clubs while “Belief” is a kind of EP filler.
+ + + : This EP is not entirely new and yet it features reworked versions. Especially the new version of the title song will again hit the dancefloors while “Bunkerb!tch” reveals the most evil and enraged side of the Belgian Electro master. So in the end we get 4 songs and that’s for sure an appreciable aspect for the fans of Johan Van Roy.
– – – : “Blood In Face” is a somewhat unexpected song to get reworked 20 years later and honestly not the best Suicide Commando-song in history.
Conclusion: I was a bit skeptical about this ‘reworked’ version of “Deine Herz, Meine Gier”, but this successful cut now finally got its deserved EP-title song format.
Best songs: “Bunkerb!tch”, “Deine Herz, Meine Gier – Reanimate 2020”.
