Komor Kommando - Hail The Rhythm
Industrial, Noise Komor Kommando is a name well known and one that I have heard a dozen times before. And, if I am to be honest with you, this is the first time I've ever sat down to listen to anything this man has produced out of this solo project. Hail The Rhythm came out last year in December via Alfa-Matrix and is a four track EP consisting of two originals, and a variation on the first track, and a remix from Inertia.

Servus Pulsu blended martial industrial with ease into rhythmic noise which made for a pretty wicked sound. Latin chants sung over a synth line and pounding drums, getting louder and more furious as the song went on before breaking out into a nice beat around the fifty second mark. The beat of the song will surely make it a nice song to slam out on dancefloors and the like. The Symphonic Version of the song took away the electronics for the most part and left you with the latin chanting and notes that made the track sound more ancient. It was an interesting way to listen to the song, though I don't think you'll hear this in many clubs lest a mock medieval battle is about to take place.

The Inertia remix of the song added a lighter electronic beat onto the bill, and took out much of the symphonic elements that made the original song unique. They came in later, though, the violin checking in around the three minute mark and the chanting breaking through near the four and a half minute mark. Overall, it was decent, but I still preferred the original, much heavier version over this one.

Cardiovascular System Check is the only other song I have yet to detail. Another rhythmic noise track that begins off with a single, drone like, but high pitched chord that eventually paves way for a steady beat. The song really sticks out once the bulk of the beat slams through; more symphonic bliss is mixed in with the rhythmic noise. It was pretty to listen to. Also, the almost music box like chimes that rang in offered a decent touch.

So, that ends my escapade into the world of Komor Kommando. And I walk away impressed. Though I may have ignored this project in the past, I now am persuaded to go and listen to more of his stuff. I suggest you take a listen to this release, as well. It's not too shabby.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
