B.T.D.O. - Homebrew
Anhalt EBM B.T.D.O formerly knows as Butaprendisko is an Anhalt EBM project formed in Poland. He has previously released a promo-album 2010 and is now back with a 15 track album called 'Homebrew', the album is available for free download.

The tracks are well-produced and get your stomp on though the lack of vocals on the album sadly brings it down. B.T.D.O. states that he's looking for a vocalist which I really hope he does because all 15 tracks hold promises of some great deeds.

The album in its current state is difficult to review since the music in itself although spiced with interesting sounds still bears the monotonous beat of Oldschool EBM and gets quite dull without vocals. Some genres can produce instrumental albums without anyone raising an eyebrow, even in genres like Anhalt, Oldschool EBM it has been known to add one or two instrumental tracks on a full length-album. 'Homebrew' with its 15 instrumental tracks proves as I wrote before, too much to handle. For the hardcore Anhalt EBM fan it might - just might - pass but for the regular fan I'm afraid it wont do.

I really hope this album will be re-released with vocals shortly, it will be very interesting to hear the final product, especially "Frau Panzerfaust" and "It's a good day for the RIOT".
