Ludovico Technique - We Came To Wreck Everything
Dark Electro, Aggrotech This CD is not out for one month with a releasedate at the 12th of November. I always wonder why it should take so much time to release an album in this age, since this promo has been sitting on my computer for about a month now. But anyway, lets get on with it!

Apparently this CD contains remixes of tracks from their album 'Some Things Are Beyond Therapy' by several big names from the industrial scene. Problem is that with the remix disease running rampant in the industrial scene most albums with remixes are not interesting at all. And this album is no exception.

First of we have DYM remixing "Dead Inside". This track is a common retard dark electro track. Something resembling an extremely dumbed down Tactical Sekt. Utter shite. Shiv-R goes for "Then I Found You" and does a reasonable job. But i wouldn't select this for one of my own DJ sets. Cryogen Second does a mix for "Wired For Destruction" and goes for a dubstep/breakbeat approach which would have worked if they had kicked out those horrible vocals.

The first good remix is done by Aesthetic Perfection. First of he makes a decent tune with a poppy undertone, and second, he provides for a part his own vocals which are better then the substandard dark electro growling of Ludovico Technique's own vocal delivery. "Potential" is done by the lads themselves and is a muddy produced heap of mediocrity. Next up is "Memory" done by the Anger Machine and this one plainly sucks. Bad remix, bad muddy production. The remix God Module made of "Wired for destruction" is not much better. A bland and boring piece of music.

E-Craft gets to decent level again with "Heal My Scars". Using a somewhat more interesting rhythmic approach. Next up we have Vein Collector with their version of "Wasting" which is a pile of shite. bad production, ugly metal guitars and vocals so over processed its just a wall of static. Wait, it gets worse! The closing song is from something called Rodney Anonymous which does "Wired For Destruction" again. Seriously, i do not know if the vocal on this cut is done by Rodney Anonymous or is the unprocessed vocal track of Ludovico Technique itself, but it is painfully sung out of tune and flat out bad.

Apart from a few decent remixes (Shiv-r, Aesthetic Perfection, E-Craft and to a certain extent Cryogen Second) we get a completely uninteresting boring album suffering under the endless remixing disease in this scene. I absolutely do not see the point why this should be released. Or why should people need to buy this. I would have been okay with a free release of this from their website. Releasing this as paid download or CD is just money wasted for the customer. Ignore this one, nothing interesting to be heard on here.
