DeadJump - Animus Necandi
Dark Electro, EBM Harsh EBM act DeadJump is from Brazil and is a one man band by Alexandre Ramos. DeadJump have previously made a number of releases on labels like 4D Records and Resistance Beat Music before he was picked up by Advoxya in 2007.

His latest release is called 'Animus Necandi' and that's the album we are going to take a closer look at.

Generally the music is your pretty standard Harsh EBM/Aggrotech with a mix between European and South American styles. The music is hard and pounding, the vocal effects are pretty good and you are able to hear the lyrics, something I enjoy.

The big problem with this release though is somewhat of a mastering issue. The general sound of the album is if all the music was recorded in a box with a substance that sucks out all the sound and treble from the music, like it's been distilled through foam rubber. A good example of this problem is especially noticeable in the third track "Glass Eyes", but this is a general problem throughout the whole album. This is very aggravating since I actually quite like the songs, but this issue makes it makes it annoying to listen to the tracks.

Hopefully this issue is solved to the next album, this could have been a 7 rating, but because of this issue, it slides down a couple of grades.
