Surgyn – “Vanity” New Album Release – Viva Music Review


Beauty (Intro) * Sever * The Stranger (Vanity Mix) * Code Black * Aesthetics (Vanity Mix) * Faceless (Vanity Mix) * Hemmorhage * Speak No More * Hit The Nerve * Agony (Outro)

Before reviewing the album, a signage caught our eye on the SURGYN website: “items are guaranteed to hide up to 90 percent of all hideous human flaws”. This line, referring to merch from the SURGYN shop, surely makes sense if you think of a hoodie that is branded with one of the band’s taglines, such as “fake what you lack”, but it also makes like total sense when applied to each of the songs (i.e. items) from their debut album “Vanity”. Released on an ominous Friday the 13th just less than a week ago as a digital download (and with a forthcoming physical disc release to be announced), SURGYN’s first album creates quite a vanity case with their medispeak inspired industrial music. Between the intro “Beauty” and the outro “Agony”, what is showcased is a world that is adamant to attaining beauty via processes of deconstruction and reconstruction again. (more…)

Scotland’s leading practitioners of Hard-edged Medical Fetish Industrial, Surgyn, are about to release their debut album “Vanity” digitally on Friday 13th, with a physical release soon afterwards. Sharp as a scalpel making the first cut into plastic flesh, peeling away the layers slowly and methodically, this is an album that will literally get under your skin. (more…)

Centhron’s Dominator is out today. The album review!

Filed under: Album Reviews — Tags: , , , , , , , , — admin @ 7:10 pm

A couple of days ago we were all thrilled about CENTHRON’s new album release – now that it’s here, we are even happier with their release. To crown their decade-old activity, the Bremen musicians come up on April-01, 2011 with a new release: “Dominator”, a full-length album with Scanner, the label that backed their most recent album, “Roter Stern” in 2009. Their label fidelity seems to work just wonders for them, since the sound both “Roter Stern” and “Dominator” come with is a mature mist well supported by electro and industrial geometry.

The album in itself comes with numerous gems. You can rarely find an album that starts off at full tilt, but “Dominator” is surely your kind of album if that is what you have in mind. “Leitwolf” does not only come as a surprise because of its being the first track of the album, and a generous one for that matter; but also because it conveys atmosphere in a diligent and well-wrought way. One would think that touring with AGONOIZE gets you all the emulation powers you need, but no, CENTHRON’s style is not at all cramped by their influence – they do stand out.  (more…)

Fractured ‘Beneath the Ashes’ Album Review

Earlier this March, FRACTURED’s official site released a couple of B-side tracks prior to the release of “Beneath the Ashes”, their sophomore studio album. The B-side tracks, which FRACTURED’s Nick Gorman called “a bit incomplete”, are ever since unavailable on the site: a re-release, after the thick of enthusiasm caused by the new album release wears off, is scheduled for late 2011.

The B-side tracks, a coveted memorabilia for FRACTURED fans already hailed a great album preview: ‘Beneath the Ashes” is indeed a masterpiece, and VIVA MUSIC is happy to shortlist it for an album of the year nomination on our site darkwave.ro. “Beneath the Ashes” comprises 12 tracks and was dually released by Metropolis in the Americas and Dependent for Europe on March-25.

Cum surprizele nu lipsesc nici de la aceasta editie, va prezentam un invitat special – DJ Luca EW (Italia), totul fiind posibil cu sprijinul Viva Music.

[scroll for English version]

Luca este un DJ binecunoscut in Italia si totodata cel care a dat nastere unui webzine/ forum dedicat muzicii electronice, in special industrial/ebm – ElectroWorld. Placut impresionat de reactia publicului, a infiintat alaturi Alberto Brandi (DJ Nox) Italian Body Music, o serie de compilatii muzicale ce au reusit sa insumeze tot ce poate oferi Italia acestui gen de muzica. Compilatiile lor cuprind formatii precum Dope Stars Inc, Alien Vampires, :Bahntier//, XP8 si multe altele.

Invitatul nostru nu e strain publicului din Romania. El fost DJ-ul oficial al festivalului Darkwave.ro III (Project Pitchfork, Rabia Sorda, Tenek) din data de 29 ianuarie, organizat de Viva Music si a incantat simturile auditive ale participantilor printr-un mix reusit, ce includea numeroase formatii ca And One, Combichrist, X-RX, Covenant etc.

DJ Luca EW va mixa alaturi de DJane Malice (Tanz Die Revolution) si DJ No Request, avand grija ca publicul sa primeasca o seara de neuitat.

Tanz Die Revolution este un party cu specific electro-industrial, ce inglobeaza atat stiluri ‘80s cum ar fi synthpop-ul, cat si ritmuri actuale, foarte dansabile de genul ebm/aggrotech, totul fiind presarat cu celebrele hituri goth si cu riff-uri agresive de chitari.

Suprizele insa nu se incheie aici. Cu aceasta ocazie anuntam lansarea site-ului Tanz Die Revolution (www.tanzdierevolution.ro) si un cadou din partea formatiei Frozen Plasma!

Intrarea este libera!

Come and join us to the new sounds of the underground!
