As the second artist announced on the roster, Tactical Module has a release coming very soon under the label. The solo project, headed by Michael Davis is moving forward with it's tunes, and has me excited for his next release. Read on to hear about his enhancements in the musical spectrum:

Now, I have reviewed world through my sight on Brutal Resonance, and it didn't quite sit well with me all too much. However, I noticed most recently that your free EP titled Resurrection had a lot of EBM inspiration. Why the evolution?

Davis - "Resurrection itself was about reinventing the project and the band and really taking things from a different approach and expanding on the use of EBM while still maintaining our trademark uses of metal, drum and bass, and digital hardcore and not alienating current fans as many bands tend to do. I just wanted to try some new things, really, and it made sense with the situation I was in."


Yea, I have to admit that even though the EBM infusion pulled through quite well, there was still a reminiscent of your previous style. Do you plan on staying this way?

Davis - "I would like to take it further but fully cross it over the metal sound but I'd like to explore more styles and keep progressing the project but definitely will keep using the EBM elements for sure."


One of the things that I noticed most about Tactical Module was your adamant use of the drums. Are they a favorite of yours?

Davis - "Well my two main instruments are guitars and drums. [In] my previous band i was a drummer and i like the more percussive approach to metal and also electronica as I'm a big drum and bass fan so combining the melodic aspects and the percussive aspects for me personally is what defines TM's sound and gives it the hard hitting aggression and crossover style the project is being known for."


Now, I suppose the biggest piece of cake that I want this interview to sink its teeth into would be your next release, Into Exile. I understand from your posts on FaceBook that it shall be coming soon. Any exact dates as of yet?

Davis - "It is coming very soon; october 4th via . Pre orders are now up. It is being released in digital and CD formats. Each format has a different remix track listing so it gives variation depending on what format you buy."


With the EP being evolved with more EBM roots, can we expect more of that from Into Exile?

Davis - " Into Exile itself explores more pure EBM tracks but also sees the return of our drum and bass, digital hardcore roots as well. It's a slice of old and new but also brings new elements such as dub step, drumstep, and hardstyle in the mix. You know it's expanding the pallet a bit more than what World Through My Sight did but also brings more metal to the front as well with breakdowns a lot heavier downtuned riffs to emphasize on the aggression within the lyrics."


I noticed that you've stated that you have a few remixes coming along with your new release; care to name off any artists that will appear as remixers? And did the process go well for you?

Davis - "Remixer wise we have Corroded Master, Detuned Destruction, Knife Fight, Defeat, Gaz from Ghost In The Static, DEP, and last but not least we have Ruinizer, which is a massive honour as CeDigest have been a huge influence on me and his remix of "Awaken" is hands down one of the brutalist remix collaborations I've ever been sent and is going to blow minds when it comes out and it was quite a simple process and came together pretty quickly. It was more a case of waiting to make sure that everything was there ready for the next steps of the process to finalizing the record."


And, now that we are at the end, I have to ask, do you have anything more to say?

Davis - "Check out Into Exile on the Juggernaut Media Group BandCamp. If you like the record buy a download or the CD and give the FaceBook page a like and support the remixers. They have great projects and also thank you to everyone that has helped me get this far; I really do feel grateful for it."

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
