Velvet Acid Christ - Pretty Toy
EBM, Industrial According to the information paper I got with this record, Velvet Acid Christ (Bryan Erickson aka HEXFIX93) is described as one of the most controversial artists in this genre. I don't agree with that. If I had the chance to describe Velvet Acid Christ with a similar sentence I would rather say that he is one of the best in this industry with samples. That is something Bryan is really good at.

The main title "Pretty Toy" is exactly as mean I want it to be. When Bryan hiss out "You're such a pretty toy to play with" you shiver with pleasure. In addition to the main title and the mix of that one there is also two B-sides, "Introvert" and "Angels in Bondage". All of them have great samples but "Angel in Bondage" takes the prize. You are also able to hear the girl that shapes the mainframe computer in from Resident Evil.

It's now three years since Velvet Acid Christ previous release and you can expect a strong album coming.
