Uberbyte - WTF
Electro, Industrial 'WTF' is an EP released by English industrial act Uberbyte and is a real hard hitting in your face release.

I actually heard Uberbyte for the first time last year after playing with them live in Holland, before that I hadn't paid any attention to them at all but I was really surprised how good they were after seeing them live.

'EXS' was actually the first release I heard from them and comparing that album with 'WTF' seems like the right thing to do really. The main difference is actually the vocals and a bit of the music also.

'WTF' has a more aggressive and distorted sound when it comes to the vocals and I actually prefer them a lot more than the ones that are featured on the latest release. Call me old fashion, but I really love screaming distorted vocals if they are well produced and in Uberbyte's case they really are.

The music is also well produced and dancy with some melodic hooks and beating drums. Sadly enough the release only hold four tracks and a shitload of remixes. All of the tracks are pretty good but the best one is the first one by far and this track is called "Kill Like Me", I think it's because its very melodic and aggressive and that's the way I like my music.

The remixes are not of my taste at all, maybe it's cause a lot of the tracks are too distorted or just too noisy for me, if you are a fan of Crunch Pod and their bands I think you won't be disappointed at all but for me it's all too much of a mess. What brings down the overall score are that there are so few original songs and too many remixes that just aren't good enough.
