Ad Inferna - There is No Cure
Dark Electro, Industrial France's finest, Ad Inferna, is back with their new album 'There is No Cure', a hard hitting piece of harsh EBM. The album is released on Nilaihah Records and is their fourth album in just two years. While it shows no lack of dedication to their art, it's also an alarm bell with the risks of releasing everything you got as soon as you have it finished, though I must admit I find very little of such in this creation.

The vocals are well varied between distorted and undistorted, as well as female and male vocals. In the Harsh scene, the common thing is to use the same effects with the same way of singing throughout the album, so this comes as fresh as a spring wind. I would suggest some work with the undistorted male vocals since they tend to fall a bit flat.

During the run time of this album you get the feeling that you are being teased, teased with great tracks like "Seventh Heaven" (without connection to the American Christian drama series), "French Kiss of Death" and "Sex Spell". Luckily you'll not be left undone, since it all comes to a screaming climax in the eight track "Resurrection". Pure Harsh perfection. A perfect melody, a perfect beat and a perfect chorus. All I need (still, not so easy to accomplish) to fall in love with a track.

Since the Ad Inferna's earlier releases have fallen into the hands of other reviewers, this is my first real taste of what they offer; bringing me to understanding of the high ratings the band has got in our review history. Vive Ad Inferna!
