Inertia - Universal Blood
EBM, Electro I have never been a fan boy of Inertia. To be honest, I feel that the fact that people know of them is probably more a result from being around since 1992 and released 9 albums rather than giving us a masterpiece. Will their latest album 'Universal Blood' change it all?

No.

For many years now, Inertia has released their material on their own label Cryonica Music, but with 'Universal Blood' they have switched to Metropolis Records.

Sometimes bordering on Electrorock with pounding guitars, Inertia is trespassing on lands where superior acts will crush them like Godzilla vs My Little Pony. However, Inertia brings a few good enough tracks to the table. "Alive", that also was the first single from this release, the very similar "Blind", the catchy electrorock tune "Lies" and the slower "Touch" all are worth to mention.

During the 10 tracks and 50 minutes playtime, it's not nearly enough to drag it out of the land where mediocre releases dwell. And when the fat lady sings (not a reference to Alexys, she's a good looking gal), it just leaves me unimpressed. To good for feeding me with words of rant, too bad to give me inspiration for words of praise, which in the end, leaves you with a pretty short review.
