DEN.C.T.BUG - Glaubensfrage
Electro Alright, let's take this MF'er on. I've been avoiding doing this review for quite some time now, but since it's the oldest one in my to-do list, I guess I have to kick myself in the butt cheeks and get it done.

The reason for the delay is not that it is particularly neither bad, nor a stonking good release either. It's in the middle ground, a dangerous place to be, especially if you are the one reviewing it.

I have never heard DEN.C.T.BUG before, so 'Glaubensfrage' will be my first contact with this artist. The first thing that strikes me, and probably have struck everyone ever listened to this artist, is that the singer sounds exactly, and I mean so exact that it is spooky, like Till Lindermann. You know the singer of Rammstein, the guy that could rip a tiny Sweede like me in half. I love Till's voice, but here I can't make up my mind if I think it's cool, or if has a bit of impersonation dorkyness around it.

On this EP, there are 9 versions of "Glaubensfrage" with remixes of Funker Vogt and Reaper to mention a few. My favourite by far is the first version you will hear after the intro, "Genesis Version". It got a floating, almost synthpop alike melody that works great together with the Till sounding voice.

The track "Krezzug" is using the same ingredients, high pitched melodies in a kind of fast paced electro landscape. The track "Nächstenliebe" is using more classic Folk inspired approach, a bit like Heimataerde, but less Harsh.

The remixes of "Glaubensfrage" gives you a wide range of styles, where both Funker Vogt and Reaper have given them their very unique touches, still, the "Genesis Version" is the way I prefer the track.

All and all, I'm curious of what DEN.C.T.BUG might bring to the table in a full length album release. Might be worth checking out.
