ESC - Eight Thousand Square Feet
Harsh EBM ESC (which stands for Eden Synthetic Corps) is releasing their third album 'Eight Thousand Square Feet'. This is your typical harsh EBM band with everything that you could probably think of that comes with it. Distorted whispering voices, pumping beats and melodies.

The album consists of twelve tracks with two that features the singer Jan L. from the band X-Fusion and Carsten J. from [:SITD:]. These are also probably the only two really interesting tracks on this album, mainly because the vocals are different and not from the original singer.

You see, the main problem here is that the vocals are too low and they feel too distant as well as there's no power in the voice. I would like more aggression and more power in the vocals to make them fit better with the music, this feels like early Grendel when it sounded like the vocalist was standing in a corner whispering while adding a shitload of distortion and chorus.

When it comes to the music the production, it's really good and you can hear all instruments very clearly as well as a lot of good bass kicking in the background. I don't know what it is with this release, but the tracks feel somewhat a bit boring after a while and I lost the interest which is a bit weird, because I love this style of music usually.

Either way, if you don't have anything else to listen to and if you got bored of all your music, check out ESC, you might like it.
