Beyond The Fallen - Re:Fall
Industrial Metal Beyond The Fallen has been teasing this EP for quite some time now. After watching and listening to two of the remixes via YouTube, I've been practically shitting myself waiting in anticipation for the moment of its release. And, well, Halloween rolled around and thus the album came out to the masses on the dark holiday. A fitting moment, I suppose, but I wanted to wait until all the commotion from everything else that released on Halloween to give "Re:Fall" a proper amount of time in the spotlight. This EP is absolutely rocking; four tracks from "You Rise, We Fall" are given new remixed life while a fifth cover song is added on just for fun. 

Nero Bellum's (Psyclon Nine) rendition of 'Unleash The Beast' is like an absolutely unholy joint of his jamming sessions from "[Order Of The Shadow : Act I]" and BTF's more electronic ebbs. The result is an absolute devilish blast of slamming drams and distorted noise. It was wonderful. 

The Lore remix of 'Disconnected' will throw almost everyone off who has ever listened to BTF in the past. The remix completely breaks down the song and transforms it into an electro banger. The screams are still there, but the house oriented beats brings the song into completely new territory. Fans of the hard sound that BTF is known for may not exactly enjoy this tune, but it pleased me. 

'Final Solution' endures a remix from Sakon, synth master of BTF. What plays out is a dancey tune that sticks to a harder edge. This would play well in clubs, but would not be for the mainstream party-goer; this is still more or less a Gothic affair. For all of you with a dark soul who still want to jump around on the dancefloor, this mix is for you. 

Kristof Bathory of Urilia delivered an absolutely heavenly remix of 'A Place to Hide'. Catering to both BTF's strengths of dark and penetrating beats and riffs and Urilia's unholy yet spiritual sounds, Bathory managed to forge an extremely epic sounding ballad with his remix. This is the type of music you listen to right before you crush your enemy in a fight for your life. Or, at least, this is the song I would listen to if that moment ever came to be. 

Lastly a cover of Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance' is done by BTF themselves. Some of you might roll your eyes at the thought of another band doing another cover of what is arguably Gaga's most well known song. However, I do not stutter when I say that BTF has managed to crank out the best cover of the song that I have heard thus far. Give it up for this industrial quintet, because they have once again proven to everyone that they are some of the most talented mother fuckers the scene has come across in a damned long time. 

Beyond the Fallen's "Re:Fall" is a gorgeous package of fantastically done remixes, and a cover song that will blow your mind over and over again.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
