Segentot - Halodevourer
TBM, Electro-Industrial There is not much to go on on Segentot. According to the Synth-me page he is from the Ukraine and he was involved in some other projects I have never heard of. A quick google search gave no results on a Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or such to give more information. That is something to work on for Segentot!

His first album for Synth.me gives me some double feelings. Its obviously Segentot knows what he is doing sound wise. His production skills are decent, and the music is quite nice to listen to. I have a lot of albums like this. Stuff you put on when you do chores and study because it doesn't distract you too much. But seeing that the music is obviously TBM or electro-industrial i doubt that is what Segentot is out to do.

He does have some interesting ideas, and some of his stuff like the very good groove on "Ongoing cycle" and "Keres-0" is very promising. A lot of the other songs sound like standard electro-industrial. On a whole somewhat better produced and more original than the standard German stuff, but also lacking in club friendliness somewhat.

As a DJ I cannot find material on it which makes me say: "I am soooooo gonna play this in my DJ set!" and that's a pity because there is some good talent here. I would recommend Segentot working on more catchy material, and maybe to get a singer because a lot of his tracks are missing something, and I think its vocals. Please do not go for the simple "distorted whisper" stuff like those gazillion other dark electro bands though.

This release can be picked up for free on the synth-me webpage, and I recommend everyone into TBM and electro-industrial to go get it. Segentot might still be a bit short on the big names, but there is something going on here, and the music is nice enough. I myself are planning to keep an eye on this dude to see if he manages to get us that club anger shit which we all love to dance to!
