De_Tot_Cor - Dead Heart
EBM, Industrial I have read Nick's demo review of De_Tot_Cor and he gave it 10 out of 10, so least to say, I had kind of big expectations and was really excited to review this EP. Either Nick pulled a prank on me and should be punished in the eternal flame with a rocket launcher up his bum, but probably the more rational thing to think is that this EP simply are not as good as the demo.

For most part, De_Tot_Cor is an instrumental industrial dance project, even though there are actually some vocals in the song "Der Letzte Tango". The music is pretty good, got a nice rhythm and flow to it and it makes you want to dance, but it should be more viewed as good music if it where vocals too it. "Aha!" you say, "What about the song you mentioned with vocals a couple of rows up?", well, it does not count, since the vocals on that tune don't do it for me. This would have been perfect if De_Tot_Cor found himself a great singer like Andy LaPlegua (Combichrist) or Daniel Graves (Aesthetic Perfection), harsh vocals without distortion. If that would happen, then De_Tot_Cor would easily become one of the most shining stars on the industrial electro sky. Still, it manages to reach about halfway there.

Part from the six original tracks on this EP, there's also five remixes. As always, I threw myself right into the Soman Remix, which usually is pure kick ass from start to finish. This remix have a pretty wicked beat to it and somehow got me thinking about LSD crazed Teletubbies. Wah, spooky, I know! I should probably mention that the "Lost in Love" remix by Statik Sky of "I Love You" is pretty awesome.

Despite all the ranting, I somewhat enjoyed listening to this EP, it got some great dance tunes and all and all it is worth checking out and I remain curious of what the future will bring.
