Draconic Elimination Projects - Draconic Elimination Projects
EBM, Industrial Responsible for a really awesome band name and a huge part in the recent 'British Industrial' compilation, Guildford's Mark Haigh is responsible for D.E.P. - better known for the recent split release with MiXE1 and the aforementioned comp.

This self-titled EP is his debut release, and the first foray into his self-labelled combination of 'dark sci-fi Electronic'.

We begin with 'For Those That Follow', which starts on a disciplined Drum sample, met with a sample : 'Time is running out for the Planet Earth'. It's followed by an eerie synth progression that loops itself for the short duration that this intro track runs for. A nice little number to introduce us to D.E.P.

"Digital Revival Matrix" is the first track proper. It has an automated female voice narrating over the top of it (which I swear has been used many times before, but I don't recognise this particular monologue). The vocals are extremely distorted and evil - it's spoken word but met with a growling vitriol and slight distortion.
Funnily, I usually find sci-fi themed releases to be as enjoyable as a punch in the grapes, but this track is right up my avenue - seriously heavy and enjoyable.

"Kescore" builds on the momentum, it's closer to Trance than any other track on here, and it carries the most melody. It's the drum sequencing I find most sustainable on here, but Mark's approach to repetition and isolation just works for me very well.

"The Waiting" keeps the heaviness of the EP in full flow, and at the end of the song, a glance at the tracklisting shows us that the final track is a collaboration with Caustic. Oh shit, things just got seriously loud.

Bit like an alien invasion, really. An act to watch.
