Desolation - Doom Trooper
Industrial Hardcore, Rhythmic Noise After the excellent album 'Fields of Victory', French noise maker Desolation returns with a six track EP on Noisj. While 'Fields of Victory' was full on industrial hardcore and darkcore, this EP has much slower tempo and is as such more a typical doomcore release, much in the same style as Embrionyc. So expect ultra heavy hard bass drums, frightening dark ambient like soundscapes and many breaks and stutter beats.

The EP opens with the solid "Learn To Obey" but we get the first high point and dancefloor demolisher in the second "God Lies". "Fracture" is a tad faster and more in the style of the previous album. Title track "Doom Trooper" simply destroys. If a DJ plays this on a traditional industrial party it will be total shock and awe for the poor little cyber goths. With choir's spooky vocals and melodies and the harsh bass drum this will be a staple track for hard dancefloors.

Same goes for the next two tracks "Depressive Brutality" and "Slave To The Haze". The latter also hints strongly on the rave sounds from 90's hardhouse classics like "Dominator" or "James Brown Is Dead".

Desolation surely delivers with his new EP. Six tracks which will all do good on the dancefloor. No filler, all killer. Easily one of the best harsh industrial releases in 2014.
