Die Braut - World of Lies
Aggrotech, Harsh EBM Die Braut is a dark electro/harsh EBM band from Chile and 'World of Lies' is their second release. I was checking their MySpace for some info and it stated that they have such good language skills that they can create tracks in Spanish, English and German. The funny thing with this statement is that the vocals have so much distortion and chorus on them that you can only hear a word or two so technically hearing what the tracks are about is impossible.

And now over to the music...

The first track "No Rules" is your typical straightforward club track, but offers little difference and surprises. While production sounds good it's a boring track. The second track "World of Lies" is a much better track with a better punch and much nicer chorus melody, this would have been the perfect opening track instead of "No Rules".

Die Braut is your typical Latin American harsh EBM/dark electro band and offers very little new and innovation to the scene and there are plenty of bands like this from the same continent that does the same equally good or even a lot better.

The thing is that I think it's hard to move away from that typical Latin harsh EBM sound which you can hear so clearly. There are two bands that have managed to do this to a very large extent, but Die Braut isn't one of them. Right now you might be asking yourself "does he hate this band and style?". The answer to that is no, but this wasn't a band that offered me any great sensation or anything else.

It's not bad it's just not that good and I think it was a bit boring for my taste.
