Genre/Influences: Dark-Electro, Aggrotech, Industrial-Dance-Pop.
Background/Info: After their last year released fourth full length album “Join Us”, German SynthAttack strikes back with a new EP featuring a title song, remixes and a B-side track.
Content: The success of SynthAttack is according to me due to their mix between different music genres. That’s what this new EP already illustrates. Some will recognize typical Dark-Electro elements, which are powerful and extremely danceable while driven by harsh vocals. Others will be captivated by the Dance/Trance catchy leads, which reinforce the dance format of the work. SynthAttack brings all these elements together. Remixes have been done by Reactor 7x, Noise Resistance and Device Noize. The B-side song moves a bit further into Industrial-Dance music.
+ + + : SynthAttack remains a real merciless project when it comes to compose dancefloor music. Even if the sound is harsh and dark, it also has something ‘commercial/dance’-minded, which will appeal for a wider audience. The title song is the ultimate fusion between all the aforementioned influences. Among the remixes I want to mention the great job done by Russian project Noise Resistance and the cool remix by Reactor 7x.
– – – : The B-side cut “All Of My Life” features a too ‘Dance’ driven chorus carried by a cheap and cliché like Trance-Dance lead.
Conclusion: The title song is a kind of earworm and a new club killer.
Best songs: “Harsh Will Never Die”, “Harsh Will Never Die – Noise Resistance RMX”.
