Bleeding Corp. - The Black Heart
Harsh EBM, Aggrotech Teasing their forthcoming debut album, Bleeding Corp. has released The Black Heart, their latest single that will be featured on Infected Sounds. The single itself comes along with another original track, and then three different mixes of the title song.

In comparison to their previous EP, you can expect less electronics, and a new, more focused industrial metal approach to their music. This was immediately apparent with the inclusion of guitar work and drums. The vocals have also been reworked to be more scream-worthy and are less defunct than in the previous EP, meaning that they're audible and not as fucked with. If this is what their next album is going to represent, then you can already consider me excited.

The Dirty Version of The Black Heart takes the band back to aggrotech, getting rid of the guitar and replacing it with harder electronic sound. Depending on your preference, you'll either enjoy this, more electronic centric version or the previous, more industrial metal version; I found myself appreciating the canonical mix more.

Long Street gave me a joy ride through a thick, dance ridden track. A bit repetitious at points, but, still was able to change up every so often to make it refreshing. I wasn't too huge a fan of around the three minute twenty second mark. The sample used in the song was just so out of place that it kinda made me cock my eyebrow and not really appreciate the effort.

Stahlnebel & Black Selket came along for the ride to remix The Black Heart. Lighter in flavor throughout the first two minutes, the mix really started to slam out after that time period and became an absolute thrill. Stuka 696 also added in another touch to the same song, glitching the guitar frame and making a bit more of a noisier track out of it all. Both remixers did a good job.

I repeat myself when I say I'm fairly excited for the next album by these guys. I'm hoping they can follow on the success of this single and make their album even better than what was presented here.

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.
