Cubic Nomad - Seeker
Rhythmic Noise, Techno Abou a year ago i was looking for new stuff for DJ sets, and i was looking for good stuff since the dumbing down of the industrial scene put me off considerably. I was aware of the Industrial Hardcore scene but i deemed their stuff to fast. Its mostly 160-180 BPM and i wanted 120-140 BPM.

I did find some cool stuff and through that i found this Dutch label called Dark.Descent. who released exactly what i was looking for and it was frikking awesome as well. Much to my surprise i found out i had the owner on my Facebook already because he was fan of my industrial band.

What these guys release is a crossover between rhythmnic noise and industrial hardcore which is generally called "Doomcore". It slower, around 130 to 140 BPM, and its extremely danceable, but also very hard and brutal material. This stuff dwarfs electro-industrial to cocktail jazz.

Cubic Nomad is one of the acts on the label, and this six tracker is his new EP, and as usual with this label its very good material. Soundwise its among the hardest Hands Productions and Ant-Zen acts, but its also very techno oriented making it the ideal stuff for dance floors who like it really hard and dirty. The beats are amongst the most brutal you will ever hear, and dark pads and sounds are hovering over the music giving it a very eerie dark atmosphere. Freaky voice samples in the breaks, and a buildup which reminds of the best techno out there. This apocalyptic new genre of industrial is miles ahead of everything we now know in our little scene.

'Seeker' is not the first release from Cubic Nomad. He also has a few EPs and an album out. These are all worth picking up, but this EP is till now his best. Its also out on vinyl, but that version only has the first four tracks.

Currently we have the trend for "demanding better" in Industrial. Well guys and gals: Here you have better. And it is more then you could have hoped for, because this stuff is so fucking good it will make you cream your pants.
