Hioctan - Headscan
EBM Michael Senft is the name of the man behind Hioctan and this is his debut album. The name Hioctan is related to a chemical process which happens during an ignition and Hioctan music is described just as explosive and inflammable. Michael Senft have earlier released two demos on his own and been on two compilations.

When I heard Hioctan I instant thought of Suicide Commando. It's very alike, but unfortunately not as good. I visited Hioctan's homepage and of course the mentioned band is named as a big influence. Still Hioctan don't get it quite right as Johan Van Roy (Suicide Commando) gets it. It feels a little bit weak and the lyrics are sometimes very bad.

The album has some good moments, but also some bad ones. Although this is a debut album and you shall have hope for Hioctan in the future and hopefully will Michael Senft soon find his own way. Keep your eyes on Hioctan in the future.
