Fatal Casualties-Psalm

Artist: 
Fatal Casualties
Release: 
Psalm
Label: 
Seja Records

Well,sometimes pleasant surprises do happen,for sure!And,luckily,such is the case here:Fatal Casualties are a Swedish duo,moving along the lines of ebm and electro music,in general.Do not let these tags deceit you,though-the sounds that can be found on "Psalm" have more in common with the early,original ebm scene-Front 242,in particular,or even Klinik would be good reference points.What makes this band stand apart though,is the fact that they can compose great songs.

[De:Ad:Cibel]-Globalized

Artist: 
[De:Ad:Cibel]
Release: 
Globalized
Label: 
Echozone

This is a band that has been reviewed,as well as interviewed by subexistance in the past.I wasn't the one that handled that review though,therefore I should start by saying that this project specializes into delivering electro/ebm for the most part.So,dancehall anthems is what someone would propably expect out of this album.

COVENANT

Probably the biggest Synth-pop/ EBM band in the world, Covenant, need no further introduction. Joakim Montelius, one of the founding members of the Swedish band gives subexistance a hearty interview, revealing among others their forthcoming show on the 25th of May at Gagrin 205! Enjoy…

Artist: 
The Dark Unspoken
Release: 
Beyond Your Control
Label:

Well,this is a band that I had once more reviewed in the past.To those who do not remember,their style is based on electronic sounds-ebm and synth pop,to be exact.

Ellipse-Verlorene Zeit

Artist: 
Ellipse
Release: 
Verlorene Zeit
Label: 
Echozone

The guitar-related images accompanying this disc,roughly gave me the idea that Ellipse would propably bear a strong rock/metal influence,to begin with.At least,these were my initial thoughts,since I had not listened to this project's music,thus far.Nevertheless,as soon as I began listening to this album,I realized that my impression was wrong,since this disc opens up with a pulsing,ebm synth line,soon to be followed by beats and voices that lead to an electro song,not that distant to the archetype of this sound moniker.

Minus Heart-The Big Idea

Artist: 
Minus Heart
Release: 
The Big Idea
Label: 
Echozone

Minus Heart was a completely unknown moniker to me,to begin with.This project seems to associate itself to the contemporary electro/ebm scene,for the most part,adding some industrial rock parts to the mix, as well.This band emerges from Germany,which is a country that has so far presented many groups and artists connected to the aforementioned genres.Another thing that certainly needs to be mentioned,is the fact that this band's line up has changed drastically before this release,since almost all members have changed,except for Diver,who seems to be the driving force behind this project

Conscience-Your Frequency

Artist: 
Conscience
Release: 
Your Frequency
Label: 
Echozone

Starting of,I need to state that the artwork accompanying this disc,is simply amazing!A beautiful digipack,in minimal,black and white overtones!Iknow,it is impossible to judge a book by its cover.Yet,my first impression upon seeing this cd,was overwhelmingly well,for that matter.Moving on,some needed information regarding Conscience should be given:this,in fact,is a solo project,led by Rudiger Illg,who started creating music,back in 1991.Which is a trully long period really,in during which he has released several albums,so far.

Bionic-Meadowland

Artist: 
Bionic
Release: 
Meadowland
Label: 
Echozone

If someone had to take a guess regarding Bionic's sound identity,just by looking at the artwork of this disc,he/she should simply have to take a look at the song titles.Let me explain myself a bit:apart from the title, each and every one of their tracks, is accompanied by the exact number of beats per minute(bpm), that it contains. Now, that certainly reminds me of a metronome! On a second thought, though, it would not be difficult to assume that this Teutonic duo specialises into delivering electro sounds, of some sort.

It is a fact that a new generation of promising artists/ bands have made their presence known in recent years. A bizarre fact perhaps,since the social/ financial situation both here and abroad seems to move in an era of disintegration.
