Sirus - MINIVIEW: Full Scale Revolt
Harsh EBM Sirus' second album "Satellite Empire" is due out very soon, but to hold over fans and to build up hype, the second single titled "Full Scale Revolt" has been put out both digitally and in Vinyl format by DWA. The title track is an angry, club stomping track that fuses harsh electronics and dubstep influences. If this doesn't get you pumped for their next release, then I don't know what will. 

Aside from the title track, four remixes from Dope Stars Inc., Ruinizer, iVardensphere, and Seraphim System all come attached. While all the remixes were stellar, Dope Stars Inc. really turned the song on its head, transforming it into their own industrial rock child. An instrumental B-side track titled 'H.E.V.' is also present. Rather than going for heavy, distorted electronics, the track takes a smooth electro feel. The track still maintains a danceable beat, but in comparison to the other tracks, this one is fairly easy going. 

"Full Scale Revolt" does exactly what a single should do; it hypes the album, makes you want to hear more, but also gives incentive for fans to buy it with extra tracks attached. For five bucks digitally, this is worth it, and for the extreme fans of Sirus, the vinyl version will run you twenty five dollars.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
