Project Rotten - Machine Made Flesh
Harsh EBM Project Rotten is the side-project of Fredrik from Menschdefekt where he has gathered two other Swedish artists to contribute in his Horror EBM project.

I think the music part of it is much more interesting than in Menschdefekt, for must parts it feels like there's much more going on with change of phase and sounds, maybe it's an illusion, but it's the feeling that counts. The high pitched sounds draw your mind to the South American EBM bands rather than the European style you would have guessed. My favourite tracks are "Knife Goes Trough", "Confessions of a Killer" and "Rot and Decay".

There are some downsides as well, even though they are not so significant. First of all, the samples are mostly well (ab)used since before by several artists and therefore feels a bit cheap. Secondly the different levels are a bit uneven; most significant is that sometimes the song is really low compared to the music, but this is a mastering issue and for a demo, it's pretty well done, I've heard much worse during my years I've been doing this.

All and all, I think that all the modern EBM liking youngsters really would be keen on Project Rotten and you just might hear it on a dance floor close to you in the near future.
