Cryo - Demo
EBM, Electronics Cryo, or Martin Rudefelt which is his real name, is the latest rising star on our Swedish demo sky. Martin describes his music as cold, monotonous, aggressive and mechanical with small glimpses of life and warmth. Cryo began as a one man band in 2002 and Martin does the entire music making and much of the video making that he shows on four screens in his live shows.

The demo consists of three tracks: "Vengeance", "Want it" and "The Pain". The first and the last track is similar in style and track construction: Common benign EBM that you could compare to a early In Strict Confidence or the first album release from VNV Nation with a slight mixture of some American EBM, for example Informatik.

The second track "Want it", stands out from the other two tracks. It leans towards harder electro and the voice has a classical robot-like sound. Nice, heavy and beautiful. The construction of the track reminds me of Reactor Skanner's (earlier reviewed here) work.

Witch way Cryo may choose, Martin does it all good and I hope and I almost expect that some record company will give Martin a chance to prove himself.
