Inline.Sex.Terror - Distorted Life EP
Harsh EBM With the latest EP from Inline.Sex.Terror there are a lot of things that goes wrong and just a few things that feels right. Why wait? I think I will start out with the ranting straight away.

With the title track "Distorted Life" the alarm goes off straight away with the use of "The Pill" sample from the first The Matrix movie. The sample in itself is cool, but it has been used too many times. There must be billions of movie samples that are equally awesome and more unique. After the sample you get around two minutes of intro, but unfortunately it more feels like the vocals just have gone missing, rather than an actual intro or the beginning of a song. However, when the vocals do appear it's actually a pretty decent track, though the vocals are way to low and the song itself is quite generic and hard to distinguish from the rest of the Harsh genre.

The second track "Hellektro Girl" on the other hand is definitely a step in the right direction. The beat is rock hard and it gives you a slap in the face to regain your attention. The song could have used some more distinguished vocals rather than some chorus shouting, but still by far the superior track on this EP.

The third track is "Fetisch Nacht" and is a sample based instrumental track. However, I can't deny that fact that I feel that I have heard this track so many times from so many other similar bands with few differences. There's simply nothing happening and the porn star moaning that worked well for Wumpscut's "Ich Will Dich", now feel quite cheap.

As fill out, there's 10 different remixes where 8 of them are of the title track. There's a few of them that stands out, like Beati Mortui's playful remix and one with Laeather Strip's mark on it, but otherwise quite uninspired like most of this EP release.
