Suicide Commando - Axis of Evil
Dark Electro, Harsh EBM Sixteen years ago Johan Von Roy recorded his first demo with his Roland SH-101. At this point his ninth full album have been released and been given the name (he has also released a couple of MCD's and a DCD) 'Axis of Evil'.

'Axis of Evil' is really the first album which Suicide Commando use more political substance in his lyrics. Like many other artists, Johan questions the foreign policy of the USA. This is most noticeable in the song "Evildoer" which is named after President Bush's famous quotation. Tracks like "One Nation Under God" and "Mordfabrik" bring these thoughts as well.

Most powerful on this album is the first track called "Cause of Death: Suicide" were the sampled voices teach us that approximately one million people commits suicide each year. That makes one human life every forty seconds. The harsh and cruel sound makes this song one of the better EBM tracks. Despite a couple of slow tracks this album keeps itself way over the surface with tracks like "Consume Your Vengeance", "Face of Death (Blind Rage Remix)", "One Nation Under God" and "Evildoer".

Lots of fans (including myself) are really looking forward to Suicide Commando's gig at SAMA next year.
