Seraphim System - Eradicate With Extreme Prejudice
Aggrotech, Industrial The first of the year starts with the aggressive techno self-produced of Seraphim System, eight noisy tracks will let you fall in a one way trip in the dirtiest sound of North Carolina (Raleigh).

As John Stancil says, the project name is partly inspired by the occult, mystical aspect of (Seraphim) and the machinery side (Sytem), in fact on his Facebook page description he wants to present his project with a binary code; the logo is an angry pit bull wearing a gas mask; nothing special about the look.

At a first listen, he choose the most scratchy synth to fuck your brain merging destroyer beats with acid tunes even if some parts tend to be a bit repetitive, it is easy to imagine being screened in a bleeding dancefloor. Some songs are too long, stretching a good idea to the limit, making it a little bit boring, but there are seven clubby tracks (+intro) full of energy with a hardcore background that will make you dance till death! Three songs that stand out the most:

"A New Breed Of Cyborg" is the third track of the album, everything sounds good; the choice of presets, the midi, industrial drums and title too, because it is very important and thrusts you into a personal landscape giving an input and triggering a chain reaction as the song progresses, making us imagine atmospheres environments, situations, feelings... even if the music doesn't contain lyrics that tell it's own story.

"Shells0ck" has a nice sound of a soundtrack for an androids movie or video games, john is in fact inspired by SciFi Movies, but there are too persistent synth that go on too long, resulting in annoying.

"Dig My Grave" is another cool song; the synthesized robotic sound will not keep your ass still. You can hear riffs of noisy machinery from an abandoned slaughterhouse where in the deepest level of the factory there's a barely legal rave with fetish bitches dancing in a rain of blood like in Blade the movie.

I would recommend it to anyone who is allied with Chaireactor, it is for sure a project with good potential and power and John Stancil has all the credentials to become a promise of hard electronic music.

You can find Seraphim System on iTunes or Bandcamp.
