Background/Info: Voster can be easily introduced as a side-project between iVardensphere members Scott Fox, Jamie Blacker and Yann Faussurier. They already released an EP entitled ”World War V” in 2013 and are now back on track with this new EP, which ‘follows the survivors in the rubble in a world dominated by VSTR’.
Content: After an intro cut, the trio reveals a powerful techno-body sound mixed with harsh vocals. This is the sound of modern EBM. The production is powerful and revealing impressive sound treatments and –manipulations. Filtered sequences and heavy dance kicks will incite the audience to dance.
+ + + : Behind this project is hiding an infernal sonic trio, which no longer has anything to prove. Their experience has definitely helped them to create this efficient techno-body approach. I like the global sound treatments, the powerful production and the harsh vocals. “Atomic V” appears to be a real solid track.
– – – : The intro and the last song, which doesn’t really reach a climax are the only minus points about this work, but there’s no reason to complain when you’ll discover both other cuts.
Conclusion: This is a powerful and alluring EBM format and I can only wish Voster to strike back with new work!
Best songs: “Atomic V”, “The Second Voming”.
