Abscido - Entertaiment In Another World
Harsh EBM, Dark Electro Today we are talking about Abscido, a young Swedish project that was born in 2012. Toni Holm Lovén, the one man band, is the author of the demo called 'Entertaiment In Another World'; it's a dark electro/harsh EBM project, even if Toni self-labeled it as Aggrotech, but there is very little of that.

The first demo of Abscido consists of eight tracks where there's an intro, an interlude ("Amblypygi"), a remix of SchutzEngel and a bonus track.

The intro is too long and boring, and instead of preparing your ears to listen, it diverts your attention. The first song's efforts puts every 4/4 as a slow preset. At almost one and a half minutes, there starts a little poorly voiced line. But, we must not forget that this is the first demo of Abscido, with potential to evolve and improve.

The most interesting songs are "No Longer Human" and "Burn In Hell". The dark and disturbing atmospheres have a good background of melancholy, but he should have a better mix and master. The tracks are trivial, lacking ideas and the lack of originality is repeated for the rest of the tracks with copy/paste. The songs have a strong influence inspired by Hocico. There is nothing innovative and Toni is only along paths already beaten and not in the best of ways.

The songs have catchy tunes sometimes, but you'll forget them as soon as you pass to the next track. The tracks are not dynamic, lacking clubby riffs and do not involve, much because the choice of sounds is not that great. The project has a technical base and it does manage to communicate the concept of hatred and anger that it wants to convey. The official video looks like a documentary of wrecked and abandoned houses, shot from a car, you can also see the rear view mirror at times. The concept design and artwork are interesting, which is not bad, but it's all done with smoke and mirrors. Never judge an album by its cover.

The project Abscido still has potential and a basic technique that should be developed.
