Project Rotten - Freakshow
Harsh EBM Project Rotten have now released their debut album 'Freakshow' on their own without a label backing them up. This release is strictly limited to 150 copies, so if you want to get one you better get moving. But first of all, we should probably answer the question if it is worth getting at all?

For you who never heard Project Rotten or never heard about them, it's harsh EBM/Agrotech all the way to the core. It would be a lie to say that it is innovating, but I get the feeling that's not something that they try to accomplish, more trying to make good, hard pounding sh*t for the dance floors and with that they succeed quite well.

The best part of the album is the beginning and the end. "The Freakshow", "Embraced by Flames" and "Buried Alive" are three great tracks to open up the album with, where the last mentioned one quite awesome.

Unfortunately things get a bit staggering in the middle part of the album and really don't get up to pace with the beginning until the end with "Fears", "Bleed You Dry", "Eaten From The Inside" and the great "Scream".

This album is one of those albums I would like to give 7.5, but since we don't do that, I will have to settle with a solid 7. With a bit more interesting middle part, this would have been given one point higher without any doubt. Still, I recommend all the fans of Aggrotech to buy this limited release, I'm quite sure most of you will appreciate it.
