Mindware - Shut It Down
EBM Axel Kleintjes who's also behind the project Cycloon, started out the project Mindware back in '99 together with A.J.F. Barian. They have earlier released a full-length album called 'Warm Places' and a EP called 'On Earth' which the title track also could be found on this second album release 'Shut it down'.

The style of the band reminds you strongly of Cycloon with the exception that Mindware is have a bit rawer and not that easy orientated sound. Still I have a difficult time finding tracks that feels interesting. Of totally fourteen tracks I just find the tracks "Ego (Sacred)", "On Earth (Final)", "I Dominate You" and "Shut It Down" a bit inspiring for my ears and mind. Even the remixes from big names like [:SITD:] and Rotersand feels slow and boring which probably isn't that strange since the material they received weren't that great from the beginning.
