Reactor7x - Disorder
Aggrotech, Dark Electro Reactor7x is a harsh EBM act that hail from Poland. This is a free release which is available on last.fm and I think it's a nice gesture to release tracks for free and of course you can't expect much from it, but this was really bad.

First off all the tracks were in 128kbit which is very low quality even for a free release and it's a huge difference compared to 160 or 192 so I don't even understand why they released it in such crappy quality. The second thing is that the tracks aren't mastered so you have to turn the volume up really high to be able to hear anything at all. Anyway, it seems that this album is called 'Disorder' and consists of a couple of vocal tracks and some instrumental accompanied by two remixes. So let's talk about the music a bit shall we? I can't say that the music is really terrible because some tracks are pretty good, but only the music part.

"Bloody Dreams" is a very melodic track and with quite a punch but the vocals are just floating around the back somewhere and just destroys the track. "Breath of Crack" is a very powerful and aggressive track but like all the other tracks the vocals are just too low and don't really fit in. But the worst track is "Cold Army" featuring the singer from "Infra Black" the vocals gives me the shivers and not in a good way, this is really bad. The vocals are too high and just bad, think Gollum on crack.

Reactor7x has potential of being really good if they; One: get someone to master their work. Two fix the vocals and raise the levels of them. Three: don't include a guest vocalist from a crappy band. But of course as always it's all about personal taste.
