Inline.Sex.Terror - 11:11
Harsh EBM I probably have to agree with Patrik - since the Inline.SeX.Terror stuff was sent to us, we clamoured round the "Office", and veritably buzzed at the prospect of more Greek Dark Electro. Like Patrik, I found the recent E.P of this act to be quite weak, and despite the enjoyable moments, it fell far short of the earlier work.
This being said, it was decided that I would review the LP, to give the audience a more all-round subjective opinion.

"11:11" starts with a dull intro called "Insanity" which borders Power Electronics, with use of female sampling. "Razor Blade Revenge" is more textbook Dark Electro - I don't consider it anything special when compared to some of the other Greek acts, but it's good enough for me to have actually listened to and not discarded. It's hard to condense the sound enough to really ascertain what I do, and do not like about it. It just feels like something is missing.

The same applies with "Fear No Evil" - although easily one of the highlights of the album, it's quickly becoming obvious that this album is more Rhythmic Noise (With Dark Electro influence), than Dark Electro. Too bad, as I have a very particular taste when it comes to Rhythmic Noise...

I think ultimately, I can't understand the combination of both styles as easily as the artist(s) would want, And it's this lack of clarity that makes the act fall short. Does the idea work? Yes. Is it innovative? Yes. Combine that with the fact that actually, the project has talent, merit, and some nice ideas, and It avoids falling through the trapdoor, into the chamber of shame.

The weakest tracks, unfortunately, are at the beginning, which is career suicide for any musician, but the album, rather pleasingly, finds its feet and track 4 : "My Legacy / My Curse" is infinitely better than its predecessors, and also probably the best track on here.

Not a bad release. Not an amazing one, but one that will likely become an option to those who have spare money, and want something new and innovative.

Sounds like Modulate meets PreEmptive Strike 0.1 with a tiny hint of TBM.
