Terrolokaust - MINIVIEW: Mix The Poison Up
Dark Electro, Industrial Rock If I could use one sentence to review this remix album, I would say: The second disc to Terrolokaust's "Mix The Poison Up" is a heavenly place of electronically remixed badassery. But, considering I am a man of many words and a heavy opinion, I might as well continue on and take up more of your time then I really have to. Terrolokaust is a well loved act on our website, with their 2010 album "No Control" receiving a lovely 9 out of 10 and 2011's "God Loves The Violence" receiving a respectable 8.5 out of 10. While we haven't reviewed their most recent album "Spit The Poison Out", I now have in my digital library the companion album to the album which is a terrific standalone piece. 

There are plenty of notable names that have come along for the ride to remix Terrolokaust's tracks, but I'm going to point out some of my favorites. C-Lekktor's version of 'Reversing In Circles' is astounding; I always have been a fan of their trademarked synth work, and that love has not died down at all. I really dug into Blakopz's remix of 'Two-Faced Leader', as it not only did the song's title and lyrical content coincide with the band's images and themes, but they also spun a wicked tale out of it. And, if I had to pick a third track that stuck out to me more than the others, I would say that iVardensphere's remix of 'Reversing In Circles' caught my ear on more than just the first listen. 

Again, DWA and friends have pumped out a fantastic remix album that's deserving of attention not only on personal playlists, but should also find a place on DJs' setlists across the scene.

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.
