Retractor - No Resistance
EBM Retractor's members Milton Sanchez and Anthony Stuart are of Puerto Rico descent but are living in the US. By their belonging to both South and North America they share the same ground as Mexican Hocico and Amduscia just as the American act God Module who all are in the same genre. The difference between the earlier mentioned bands and bands like Suicide Commando, Grendel and Tactical Sekt is that all of them have that little special thing that makes their music unique and special. Unfortunately I don't find the same thing Retractor most of the time.

Even though the band in some parts of the album make a high with songs like "Morbid Place", "Possessions", "Psycho vs. Killer" and "For Once", the 15 track long album becomes quite straight forward and dull most of the time. Still you should have in mind that this band only have been on two samplers before this album with the tracks "The March To Stalingrad" and "Psycho vs. Killer", this makes 'No Resistance' this bands debut album and I really don't think you should forget about Retractor since I believe they may find that special thing you can't really touch.
