In Strict Confidence - Silver Bullets
EBM, Electro There's been a lot of In Strict Confidence lately. First off was the 'My Despair' EP, then the full-length album 'La Parade Monstreuse' and now it's time for the second EP from the album, 'Silver Bullets'.

I have a hard time to hear any real difference between the single version of "Silver Bullets" and the original. It's a great track with a great refrain that you surely will remember. I'm not to keen on the hard hitting guitars in the beginning, but I can easily get over them since the track as a whole is a true and great ISC tune. There's also four different remixes of the track. X-Fusion's remix (which also was on the limited 2nd CD of the album) is really danceable and the best remix of the EP, I would rather DJ that version instead of the Clubmix. The remix by Controlled Fusion is a good one as well, but sometimes it's hard to compete with Jan Lehmkämper (X-Fusion) sometimes. Not to forget, there's also an Extended Version of "Silver Bullets", and just like the title say, it's more of the same. Over 7 minutes is a bit far fetched I think, get's a bit repetitive.

Part from "Silver Bullets" and all its remixes, there's three new tracks as well. The first one, the Extended Version of "Rain", priory released on the "The Serpent's Kiss" album, is funny my favourite track on the EP. It have so much 'Mistrust The Angels' over it and it's In Strict Confidence to the core and what they are to me. This Extended version is even better than the original.

"No Refuge In The Night" is a slower tune and almost ballad like. It's not bad at all, but often goes by unnoticed. Finally, "Why Did I Lose My Faith?", which is a poppy tune with Antje Schulz doing what she does best. It's far from the best tune of the EP, but still a pretty cute track and it gets your mood up.

Perhaps the In Strict Confidence part of 2010 is over with this, you never know, but I'm quite sure we will see more in 2011.
