Devilsight - Del Cartel (Single CD Promo)
Harsh EBM This is a three track Promo from Devilsight, originally from Mexico City who in their own words are "Touching the rage of the national scene".

The track "Del Cartel" I believe is delivering an important political message which I welcome. But, although I like the dance beat, the vocals are completely incoherent, it would be better as an instrumental with a few samples perhaps. Although the synths at times do sound as if they are trying to emulate a Hammond Organ, and there is little variation. At the end of the day whatever the perfectionists or I say, the kids will dance to it.

The Hocico cover "Ecos", is far from my favorite Hocico track so should be interesting. Firstly that essential Hocico stomp is just not of even nearly the same quality. Although the vocals on this are a little better and synths are reasonable. My advice is don't do Hocico covers.

"Innominado", after listening once, my first though was this is too short at 2.15, so I went looking for another copy. The full version is 5.54 and so my review of this track is not of the promo cd but of the version included in "Extreme Sündenfall 11". This I find a big improvement in most aspects. Again a good dance track and the vocals are drastically improved on. Great drums on this one, almost like I am listening to a completely different band. Much is due to improved production, the promo CD sounding completely flat.

I then found the need to see if I could find better versions of the first two tracks, and this was easily achieved. Devilsight are really well on their way to becoming a Hocico clone, which personally I don't have a problem with and neither have the people dancing to this stuff. Apart from the part of me that realises that a great amount of talent is being hidden in Mexico because of this. It seems that the only way you can, "Touch the rage of the national scene" is by being a Hocico clone.

Conclusion:
I am going to mark this rightly or wrongly on the promo CD, although I also think it only right to give the reader as much information as possible. Giving equal weight to all 3 tracks, at a push I can just give 3 thanks to "Innominado".

My advice is if you get a copy of this promo, take a note of the track names and then bin or melt the CD and listen to the tracks on "YouTube", I would score 6 listening on there, but bare in mind always it's only 3 tracks.
