Darkmen - Guilty E.P
Old School EBM, Anhalt EBM Darkmen's debut EP 'Guilty' should probably be better labelled as a CDS, since this EP really contains the two tracks "Stop the Machine" and "No Future", but since we can find four different versions each of the two songs, you get eight tracks of Belgian Old School EBM. There's a few good remixes on this EP, but my favourites are the two opening ones, both with the extra add-on title "Transmission Edition" and that's the two tracks I'm going to focus on.

I grew up with artists like Pouppé Fabrikk, Ionic Vision, Nitzer Ebb and other typical old school acts and you get a taste of each and every one of them in Darkmen's music. In recent days we also where blessed with Spetsnaz debut album 'Grand Design' and it's not to far fetched to see similarities with that masterpiece.

The two tracks are a fast paced highway without any bumps and stops. No slow old school, this is hardcore stomping that will leave no arm pits dry after a session on the dance floor. I really enjoyed it and can't wait for the debut album to be released in the end of the summer.
