Pittersplatter - Frozen : Reign of the Warlock
Electronics, Industrial Pittersplatter has become a very familiar name to both myself and, hopefully, the site as two of their albums have been reviewed before, as well as their single, and I even took the liberty of interviewing Worm Splatter a bit ago. Now, under the ever expanding roster of Pittersplatter, the warlock has revealed a newly remastered and redesigned version of his ever popular album, Frozen.

While I am a huge fan of the album myself, it's hard to form an immediate opinion about this release to start. I love it with my whole heart, and everything about it screams that I just need to have it. From the new artwork that's as menacing as it is entrancing, to the slightly tweaked sounds of the songs, as well as the two new tracks added onto the end of the album, it really is just the definitive version of Frozen to own.

However, the fault lies within that there isn't much new to go off of for those of you who already own the original Frozen. The two new tracks, which are an orchestral version of Frozen, alongside an IIOIOIOII remix of the same song, were previously available in digital format (one being on the Fuck You - Enjoy! Vol. 1 compilation, and the other as a limited time download). However, I sort of rejoice in having the two tracks available on a physical copy at last.

As far as the remastering goes, as I listened to the tracks side by side and did a bit of a comparison, there was a few things here and there that I found to be beneficial to the overall listening experience. Some sounds were lowered here and there, making the songs a lot easier on the ears. I actually appreciate listening to this remastered version more than the older version that I have.

And, well, I suppose what I'm trying to say is that this version of Frozen is the best Pittersplatter experience anyone can experience. For newfound fans of this wonderful project, this is a perfect place to start; you'll be getting a refined musical journey from the sweeping arms of the mystic known as Worm. However, for long time standing fans, I'm not too sure if you're going to be going as gaga as I am over the album. Sure, it's nice, but it's not really something new altogether. Nonetheless, this is still a great release, and if I am to be true to myself, than I shall give this album a great score. Go check out the album, and pick up a copy; it has a fairly limited number of copies printed (50 in all), so get one before it sells out!

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.
