Diversant:13 - The End of Days
Aggrotech, Harsh EBM Diversant:13 definitely demands some form of attention from all of you aggrotech enthusiasts around the globe. Their previous releases have been great, and they continue to follow that trend with The End of Days. The artist self describes this piece with the following quote: "Let's die today, not tomorrow when we are dead, you're still alive in this nuclear winter, and after that it's a long road to the last return from this circle of decay".

Each song delivers something unique to the formula, and it's not only thanks to Diversant:13's talent, but also to the skills of fellow musicians within this dark category. Freakangel, Diffuzion, and Darg all bring into the game their hard work, and help along with Diversant:13's track list.

Not to mention that, but also the ear orgasm-inducing use of both trance laced synths with heavy guitar work just fine. Their vocals take a more distorted, spoken, and distorted approach working for the better in songs such as "Nuclear Winter", which features Darg.

However, what made "Nuclear Winter" even that more powerful for myself was the fact that as I so happened to be listening to it, I was walking in town, iPod blasting, and I found myself in the middle of a winter wonderland. And I found my hair sticking up, as the song fit perfectly well within the nature of the ice cold temperatures, and I could picture everything decaying around me with the pleas of mankind going unheard. That was a bit deep, so let me move on.

The remixes didn't bring much more to the table, as I found myself enjoying the original tracks more than the remixes. This is not to say they were bad, in fact they were quite well done, but I just felt as if they were tacked on to just for the sake of having remixes within the album. And, sometimes, an album such as this does not need remixes for they have the possibility of spoiling the original song.

Well, now that I have a favorite track in the form of "Nuclear Winter", how can I say anything other than I have found a new musical love affair with this album? I have limited space on my iPod, but I made room for this album on it. Each song is different, and each song leaves you wanting more. The remixes may not be as good as the original songs, but they do add to the length to the album, and are a bit more club like for those of you who enjoy more bass heavy songs. With talents such as TraKKtor and Freakangel backing them up on this project, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't buy this album. It's an early favorite of mine for the year.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
