Siva Six - Superstition
Dark Electro, Harsh EBM Siva Six has been very well received on the site so far, so I'm guessing I'm just going to spoil the review and say that what we're given here is pretty good from the Greek outfit. It's mainly a remix album featuring four new tracks and eleven remixes. And, while not everything on the album is the best damned thing in the world, I can easily say that the tracks straight from the duo is not disappointing at all.

Superstition starts off the album with the harsh EBM that we're used to, delivering a distorted voice and a pretty fast beat. The song is pretty fun, but I feel as if it was lacking some bass in order to really deliver a powerful song. Nemesis pulls back a notch, slowing down, allowing the beat to get straight to your soul and stick with you.

And then we're given two really odd songs that couple with one another that are rather sadistically funny. They are I am a groupie (featuring Maria Kalapanida) and the other being She is a groupie. Aside from a few effects on the vocals, both play out as acoustics, and both talk about how this groupie fucks with various bands (including Siva Six). So, you really can't take either song all too seriously; if anything, it's a parody on the groupie life.

And then we're served the remixes. While I don't want to type about each and every remix on the list, I can say that they're pretty decent. Sticking out of the bunch are Nano Infect's very clubby remix of Serpent whore and Killus' very metal influenced mix of Faileth stars. I'll leave the rest a surprise for you to open.

And, well, that's that. I have no major complaints about this EP, but nor do I have a gigantic amount of praise I can bestow upon it. It is good, but I wish there were less remixes and more tracks from the Greek men rather than not.

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.
