Extinction Front - Motherview
EBM It's a hard thing to manage to stand out in the large amount of harsh EBM/Aggrotech acts these days, there's simply so much (too much?) offered on the table and most of it sounds pretty alike. While Extinction Front is far from something completely new, they offer some differs and what they do sounds good.

First off all, the overused vocal distortions are left standing in the corner while they use more screaming vocals (for most of the time) which is something I support. The production quality is good and well composed.

The let down is simply that it is far from special in any way. Some tracks feel heavily inspired by Hocico and there's simply no hit tune, more a compilation of good generic harsh EBM tracks. You never really get that feeling "Oh, now I need to hear that track", more like you are listening through the album and go away with the feeling that "it was pretty alright".

There's one exception though, and that is the cover of And One's "Metalhammer" that is pretty interesting and fun. And One goes harsh is a pretty interesting concept and even though the original is far more interesting, it could be a fun thing for the DJ's out there to vary it up (who probably are as tired of playing "Metalhammer" as I am of dancing to it) with this track instead.
