Various Artists - Plutonium Showcase v.2
Other This is the second sampler-album from Plutonium Distribution, which also the title of the album says. The music is a broad mix of both new and old artists which is positive. The most of you probably already know of Project-X, Severe Illusion, The Pain Machinery, Morticians and TWZ so I won't say anything about them. Besides, we have already made reviews of these bands before. And in some cases even interviews. Check them out.

Some of the more interesting acts on this sampler are Auto-Auto with a clear synthpop sound presents the song ''Dog'' which I loved from start. I hope to hear more about this in the future. I saw Cryo on stage first time at the Alarm '05 festival and I wasn't really impressed back then, mostly because of the poor quality on the equipment the organizers had. Then I saw him again 17/2-06 at the club Statisch in Gothenburg. I must say much better because he could prove what he was capable of, so I hope a release from this guy will come soon.

Whitechapel I've heard before but under another name, I just can't seem to remember what it was. Anyhow, I like what I hear and I hope to hear more from Whitechapel in the future as well. Din Stalker makes chip-influenced music that's really catchy, hope to hear more about this too.

CJ Parker, Psilodump, Sadako's Fury and Eternity Range is artist I have had a hard time to get to know. I'm not sure what I think about these songs and artists. Instans, Microbody and Northern Electric makes me think of the years 98-99 when I listened much to classic EBM and I'm very satisfied to hear that some artists still burns for this kind of music.

Akeum Sun I have already reviewed once, some months ago, I wasn't too impressed then but this time they are actually good, thumbs up. The last track on the record is with a group/artist called Trashcandychoir, it's a bit strange song but I like it. Anyway, I like the whole album because of the good mix of artists since it shows both old and new acts. This gives a new hope on the future and builds up my expectations on what's to come.
