Alien Vampires - Harshlizer
Aggrotech, Dark Electro Alien Vampires is a band that doesn't need any real introduction, they've been around for quite some time and are known for delivering aggressive beats and vulgar lyrics.

And so it's time again for them to release a new album called 'Harshlizer'.

Musical wise not a lot has changed with Alien Vampires, it's still the same type of music that the last CD offer, but this doesn't mean it's not good. Overall the sounds of the tracks are nice and you got some really nice melodies and baselines. The thing with Alien Vampires is that it almost seem like they have a filter on some of the tracks to make them sound a bit dirtier and less clean than other bands in the same genre. This is both good and bad, depending on what you like of course. I am a bit split when it comes to if I really like it or not.

There are some really nice tracks on this album like "Lies" and "Death march" with it's distorted guitar and heavy baseline that make you want to bang your head so hard it probably will fall off.

The downside is that the vocals are too low and fall behind the music and the effects make it hard to really hear what the tracks are about, but if you just want something aggressive to dance to then it's perfect for you. This is a party album and I like it. It's far from flawless, but it's still a good release none the less.
