Aesthetic Perfection - The Dark Half
EBM, Electro-Industrial Aesthetic Perfection releases 'The Dark Half' after a successful full album release of All Beauty Destroyed and proves that his influences and musical style remains strong and ever dominant in this musical scene. Ripping from the cores of Industrial and twisting in a whole new sound, Aesthetic Perfection displays his timelessness and continuous stepping forward from release to release and each time allowing for something new and refreshing.

"The Dark Half" is the title track of the album and is followed by four remixes. The classic sound of 'All Beauty Destroyed' follows through the album but as expected takes on a dark element which flows effortlessly and gives me great hopes for how the next full release will sound, especially with the additional track of "Dead Ringer" as the final track of the release. "The Dark Half" is a hugely captivating track with edgy lyrics and surging sound resonate well within the both harsh and softer musical fan within me. Mixing vocal styles of deep shouts and softer melodic tones much like those within 'All Beauty Destroyed'.

As far as the remixes on this release go, the ∆aimon remix of "The Dark Half" really rises above every remix on this release, while the others hold their unique qualities and are equally listenable, I still found this ∆aimon remix to be above par in atmosphere, mood and overall sound and execution of style. A pure mix of darkness and fear truly resonates through this remix and blends perfectly well with the original track.

I highly recommend this release as more good things are sure to happen as you'd expect from Aesthetic Perfection.
