Anamadim - Dymphne Sanctis
Aggrotech, Dark Electro The Mexican master of harsh EBM melodies, Anamadim, is back with his self-released EP 'Dymphne Sanctis'. In my review of his demo, I stated that he would win a lot by getting a vocalist to his great instrumental tracks (had a few vocal tracks on the demo though), and so he have done. But he did not look very far; he simply kidnapped Fredrik from Project Rotten and Menschdefekt that featured on one of the tracks of the demo, "Armageddon".

In this EP release, we actually get a mix of "Armageddon" in a 2010 edit version. We get great samples, great bass lines, good vocals and most of all, great melodies. Everything you would expect from Anamadim by now. And this story goes on throughout the EP with the tracks "Destroy, Erase and Rebuild", "Vixen", "Nothing Left" and finally my favourite track of the album, "Mutation". It is surely a great tune and you will also hear Fredrik sing, for real, in the chorus, and this creates a great ying and yang effect on the vocals.

The part where this production is lacking is the production quality. The audio is very compressed and demo like. If he is going to go from a demo artist to release real releases, he needs to amp the quality up. Otherwise, great Harsh EBM that is really worth checking out.
