Terrolokaust - Dissensions
Dark Electro, Industrial Rock Three years since Spit the Poison Out has been released and now we're here with Terrolokaust's new album Dissensions. While there is always some fear to be had by musicians when releasing fresh material to the public, I highly doubt Terrolokaust has anything to worry about; there music has always been well received by both critics and fans alike. The same goes for Dissensions

Terrolokaust has their full palette on display in Dissensions, with hard-edged electro dance tunes infecting the album at every peak. The first track allows dance synth to slowly take us into a bouncing EBM friendly tune. Ssagittar's vocals are, as usual, as good as they get; he's soft yet controlling, and his clean chords sometime erupt into growling anger. If you're in the mood for good dance floor tunes, 'Pursuit Of Ruin', 'Pay The Price', and 'One Day' are all stellar choices. 

The band's guitar driven mania is not forgotten either, as songs such as 'A Masochist's Tale', 'Heterochromia', and 'Don't Try To Understand Me' lead with crunchy bits. Sometimes I swore I was listening to a different band when I got through some of the less electronic tracks, but then I snapped back into reality. 

While the whole album shows off a fairly emotional side of Terrolokaust, 'My Fault' is the epitome of Terrolokaust falling to their knees and opening their heart. The sway of the music, Ssagittar's heartwarming lyrics and vocals, and the piano work backing it all made it so. Another outstanding track that should be pointed out is 'El Mundo Sigue Girando'. Though Spanish, Terrolokaust presents most of their material in English to make it as accessible as possible to a worldwide audience. While that is appreciated, it's always nice to hear Ssagittar sing in his natural tongue; it comes out much more clear and steady, and sounds much, much better. 

So, Terrolokaust offers us a meaty package with Dissensions. Any fan of Terrolokaust won't want to miss out on this album; electro, industrial rock, sexy Gothic Spanish men, they're all here. Now you just gotta go out and get it.

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.
