The Deity - The Darkside Chronicles
Dark Electro, Electro One of the biggest disadvantages of the current "music industry" is that everyone can download some softsynths and a DAW and release music they made. Sometimes it leads to nice things, but more often it leads to disaster.

And boy, do we have disaster here! This is probably one of the worst albums i have ever heard in the dark scene. It is so bad even Ext!ze can topple this. And the guys behind this band have their underground heroes right, because i can make out influences from the likes of Velvet Acid Christ, Lassique Bendthaus, Clock DVA and Click Click, but it is executed in such a horrible way it is quite astonishing they even dared to release it.

The files they submitted to Brutal Resonance were so bad i couldn't believe my ears. I had to check it on their Soundcloud to be sure. It sounded much better on Soundcloud, so that band actually did send off mp3's which sounded even worse to a webzine for review. Not wanting good review at all do you?

There is a quelchy bassline which they use in almost all the tracks, which gets irritating quite fast. The songs are very bad, and the mixing is extremely muddy and chaotic. Vocals can hardly be made out, and are soundprocessed in a bad way. Apart from what might have influenced them there is nothing good to be heard on this album.

The album lasts a good 70 minutes and this huge swath of horribleness can only serve one purpose: as a torture instrument.

Special recommendation I also have for the cover. Check it out. It's above this review. How could I possibly think this would end well? Of all the demos from Black Metal bands I have seen, they have better covers than that, and those aren't exactly the top in design.

The Deity: Sorry mates, I am pretty sure you are nice guys and gal, but I strongly recommend you to leave your career in music and design behind. The world will be a better place for it.
