Akanoid - Civil Demon
Electrorock The music that streams through my headphones remind me of soundtracks to some action movies from the late 90's or early 00's. There are heavy guitarrs mixed with singing that sometims borderlines to shouting. I the middle of this you can also find som really nice electronic bits and pieces. All together this sums up to a quite nice pop/rock-album with some electronic influences.

If you only like the blippity bloppity or harsh/noisy electronic genres this is most likely a bad choice, but if you like music like todays rock/pop-acts and wonder how they would sound if they started using their synthesizers a bit more. Then I think this album is for you.

Personally I like it quite alot. The music has a sound that I'm not that used to and it's obviously quite skillfully played. To mention something negative, the guitarrs get a little more space than I like but with Akanoid's sound this seems like it has to be or it would turn into something else.

If you have a wide and mixed taste in music, then I think you will enjoy this album.
