Frontal Boundary - Electronic Warfare
Harsh EBM, Electro-Industrial Frontal Boundary released the first album, 'Electronic Warfare', on January 6, 2012. From what I have seen, this is his only release, other than a single on a compilation album. It is self-released under the label Frontal Boundary. This album has 9 songs in the Electronic genre. The only member is BrendinR, and he does a great job writing and producing the music on this album. The video release from this album is for the "Mental Illusion" song, which is my favorite song on the album, and for being a first album and video release, the video is quite good. Similar artists are Combichrist, Suicide Commando, Taktical Sect and Agonoize.

"Das Blut" opens the album, and although the song name is in German, the only German in the song is the song name. It is a club track and their style sounds similar to Grendel, but not as harsh. "Time To Heal" is a slower song, but still a bit danceable. All of their vocals have a harsh effect on them, but they are still understandable. "Fuckslave" is thick with synthesizer bass lines and is, as the name suggests, a very S&M type of song. "Mental Illusion" has a great club feel to it and should easily get people dancing at the club. "Under Fire" is a very slow song, but still danceable if you are in trance mode. "Visions" sounds a bit erratic in spots, but is still not a bad song.

The last three songs on the album are remixes by Sebastian Komor, CAT and [U-D-R]. The first remix is for Das Blut and Sebastian Komor really takes this song into a great direction. It is faster and more intense than the original and has some great synthesizer riffs in it. CAT remixed "Time To Heal" and keeps it very low key in its style. I wouldn't say it is danceable, but more of a sit and listen song. [U-D-R] takes on "Mental Illusion", which I feel is their best song on the album. I actually prefer the original track to this remix. It took it down a few notches and didn't get me into the song as much as the original.

For being his only album release, I can see a lot of potential in this artist. Along with the video for "Mental Illusion", I am sure this won't be the last we hear of from BrendinR (Frontal Boundary), and he is sure to start getting attention and gaining devoted fans. I can only see his next albums getting better and better. Frontal Boundary doesn't currently have its own website, but can be found on most music social networking sites.
