Individualdistanz - Demo
EBM Just like so many times before I first discovered this band at German EBM Radio where the first track on this demo, "Stromstoss" is played relative frequent. The band started out in 1999 and this demo contains 10 songs from the first year until this present time.

Fast it becomes obviously that this is tracks from a five year period because the style and quality are shifting from track to track. We hear everything from old-school EBM which then turns to more modern EBM and after that become more danceable and instrumental.

Through the whole production you get the feeling that you are waiting for the song to accelerate. The tracks are musically built up and are sometimes really great, but you are still waiting for an explosive refrain and that's were it all falls down. Further on I think the distortion which is used on the voice is too simple, boring and plain. If they should have spent more time on making the tracks sound more well produced the songs would be improved with several points.

Now it sounds like there are no good parts of this demo, but there absolutely is. The tracks "From Life Nothing I Receive", "New Born Life" and "Choral" definitely have a great basis to build on and if Individualdistanz continue to grow we will see more of them the following years.
