Proceed - Fehlgesteuert
EBM There are two things in life that makes me extra excited: My beloved girlfriend and heavy, massive Old-school EBM. As you can guess, this collection of words is about the last mentioned.

Even though Proceed themselves are from the eastern part of Germany (Magdeburg) you could almost say that this album is a Swedish affair. The album is mastered and produced in Downstair Studio in Örebro by Pontus Stålberg, more recognized as the singer of the Swedish hit band Spetsnaz. Also there are some Belgian influences by Ionic Vision (a personal favourite of mine) as they helped Proceed a great deal with their promotion. Germany, Belgium and Sweden in the same production - can it be wrong?

To answer my own question: NO. This album is defiantly delicious. You don't often hear this type of honest and virile Old-School EBM these days and it's good to know that this type of music didn't fade away like the 80's. The way they sing reminds of a German Dupont and the music makes me think of old E-Craft, Spetsnaz and Ionic Vision. A heavy and simple beat, genius loops and foremost: hell of an oppressive beat.

"Rage Against The Acoustic" makes new ways and faces. Fantastic.
