Terra:Cide - Doom Of Decadence
Harsh EBM, Techno Another year, another hybrid collaboration. Maybe this year I'll see one that stays around?
Combining the talents of Hydrocyanic's Miko, and Vault-113's Joe, Terra:Cide is challenged by the distance between these two young men, and the competitive nature of a very demanding sub-genre.

Encompassing the striking aesthetic of melodic Dark Electro, and the virulent pulsing of hard Techno, 'Doom of Decadence' immediately launches itself out of the speakers like a punch in the gullet. It would be a lie to tell you outright that this is original and diverse - I've heard enough Suicide Commando clones to know what makes an act unique, and honestly, Terra:Cide doesn't have the varying time signatures, the gimmick, the novelty sound, and the immediate whirlpool effect (where you get sucked in without realising it) that bands such as Hocico have.

However, they don't need to - this project is an experiment, and if pacey, danceable Aggrotech with real melodies and vocals that are both distorted and coherent appeals to you, then this demo is worth keeping an eye on.

'God's Creation' offers a little more promise, the bass on here is as demanding as an army officer, and the unpredictable change in tempo and volume at the two minute mark is a bold move that suggests to the listener that these artists know what they are doing. It's like they're saying :
"Stick with us, we are getting better and the full length will be worth the price".

The final part of the demo is 'Pzychonauticx" - a track that's carved from the Trance influence of this duo, the BPM on it is as high as you would want to ever dance to, it's energy enough to tidy / exercise / fuck to, and like all good Trance tracks, it knows when to drop you and lift you.

As Demos go, this is pretty good. I'm a fan of Vault-113 anyway, and Hydrocyanic is an act that I can listen to, but Miko knows I'm not a huge fan. I've heard enough of his other work to know he's got what it takes, and I think that's best reflected in this union of minds.

You'll hear this name again, and I expect it won't be in a parting context.
