Stereomotion - Sehn:Sucht
Electro-Industrial, Goth 'Sehn:Sucht' is German Stereomotion's third release and was their first release on Dance Macabre, after two prior releases on E-noxe. This piece of Electro-Industrial has a touch of Gothic to it, not only the hissing vocals and background guitars, there's some special atmosphere to it that you really can't pinpoint even if you'd dissect it even closer.

Even though the album is only 10 tracks, you still get 51 minutes of music, making the tracks a little longer than the normal 3½ to 4 minutes that has grown into some sort of standard. Still, this is something you don't quite notice while listening.

The vocals are pretty flat and un-dynamic, but I'm not sure I would like to have it any other way. The hissing fits the scene that the music has built up. Some of the tracks come off as they have been cast in stone, formless and unchanging. Luckily, there's life to be found, especially in the tracks "Addicted", "Filth", "In Gods Name" and "On Your Knees". It's the synth melodies that do it, because the beat is pretty much the same and the guitar is grunting and mumbling on the same strings.

This album was released back in 2009 and Stereomotion has so far had a one year release schedule, this means an album is overdue (a remix album was released in 2010) and hopefully something is released soon enough. I find myself a bit curious of what is to come. Hopefully mixing and stirring some of the tracks up, because following this particular formula will grow old if overused.
