Red Cell - Hybrid Society
Electro, Industrial To turn down a contract to a label takes allot of patience and most of all allot of insight of what you want to do and how you want it to be, but if you, like Red Cell, are trying to create the perfect hybrid between EBM and Metal perhaps it takes just that.

I believe that something never can be perfect. Perfectionism is an eternal strive doomed to fail, but in this case its god damn close, if you speak your mind. First I had a hard time to accept the mix between these two music genres and as an inveterate electro I found it difficult to approve with the guitars place in this production. When I thought about how, a night in the shower if I'm not mistaken, to describe the band I finally came up with that it reminded me of a "Project-X with guitars".

However, Red Cell deliver a debut album with an enormous pressure and the mix between the more poppy keyboard and the heavy guitars is a joy for the ear and the songs "Related Skin", "Invisible Poetry", "Nothing" and "Naked" becomes self written classics. This is insanely great.
