Technomancer - Starsign (A Tribute to Apoptygma Berzerk)
Techno, Futurepop As a cover song afficionado I have high demands on covers that I listen to. This does not apply any less when an artist chooses to cover one of my favourite artists, in this case Apoptygma Berzerk. Roy J. Digre a.k.a Technomancer has taken on a tough task to make a tribute to his fellow Norwegians in Apoptygma Berzerk and despite this beeing a massive task, Roy manages to pull it off quite well.

This EP consists of four well known Apoptygma songs. "Starsign", wich gives this tribute it's name, "Into The Unknown", "Paranoia" and "Unicorn".

Technomancer's sound goes quite well with these songs and he has not strayed too long from the path of the original. Over all the covers are made very well and with respect. What lacks some is Roy's voice that sometimes don't meassure up to the vocal demands and because of this sounds a bit strained in some parts. This get especially clear in parts of "Starsign" where one gets the impression that the will and ambition to make a good cover of a song makes the artist go the extra mile in somewhat torn shoes.
