WormZ - Emergency Alert System (Part One)
Aggrotech, Hardstyle WormZ is a cyberpunk production duo from Milan, Italy. EAS is an EP of 12 tracks, including 6 remixes and a cover, following from "Introduction to the System" (2011).

After a short introduction we get full on with "Braindance", a quite standard Aggrotech track, it's melodic to a point and danceable too. I like it when I get provided with the lyrics and can sing-a-long properly, 'Turn up the volume, bleed on the dancefloor...', they meet with my approval anyway as does the track.

"Never Stop To Hit" has some great synth sounds, the ones I like that don't sound like my grandmother playing the harmonium. A good dance track and if you like Oral and Anal sex, the samples at the start and repeated give you chance to shout about it. It's hard and fast as a track like this should be. I don't really get the lyrics for this one apart from the obvious but it doesn't really matter. Just keep dancing and shouting along.

The next track "Spread Out Into Space", continues much the same and if you like this genre then like me by the time you get to track 4 you will be lost in the 'System' somewhere, shout and dance and enjoy it, I did. Includes some changes to allow getting your breath back. Great lyrics again to shout out, " There is no mercy for your race......we are a new kind of humans fucked up". I played this one to a much younger audience than myself, after a look of initial shock they went crazy to it, always a good sign.

"Slave to the Godfuel" brings a change, more electro with a hint of Aggrotech, it's fair, not much to dislike, nice beat and melody. I initially thought, next time I listen to the album I will probably skip it, because it's not nearly so much fun. But, it grows on you quickly, so give it a second chance if need be. I must add that it is also delivering an important message.

We are now in 'Remixland' , although to be exact this is a cover, with "Eins Zwei Polizei (Mo-Do cover)". It's a crazy, great to dance to cover, just there ready to be enjoyed. WormZ have also very easily put their stamp on the track with their distinct synth sounds. These sounds are close to the limits of my tolerance level, I can feel it getting close to the edge but somehow they never cross the mark.

"I need new parts (Nyct Studio remix)" is another hard pumping track only this time with a noticeable hard and loud drum beat, it's the drum beat which brings it up to the standard of the rest of the album. Another great aggressive dance track.

It gets even better with "Umbrella Corporation (T-Virus mix by Nitemare Machine)", a dance-floor filler for certain. Hard and fast with digitized vocals which have been used before in the album. An excellent mix by the Russian 'Nitemare Machine' project.

"I Need new Parts (TrackZero RMX)", provides more of the excellent same dance mania, great melody, beat, drums and synths. Just get lost in it and hope you come out the other end.

"Humanize (Freaky Mind deflorated mix)" brings a little change, the Russian 'Freaky Mind' put's his a little more electro mark on this. The change at the start was a little bit hard to bare after the tracks that had gone before. But after about 90 seconds or so and we are back on the dance floor. Again it turns into Aggrotech dance mania heaven.

"I need new parts (Anthracitic Moths rmx)", once again an excellent remix by a Russian project, which on a personal note is so encouraging. I just like that harsh and hard pumping dance beat so much.

Everyone is going to die (Selene Riot remix) concludes our album, with another good track to keep the standard of this album high. A nice heavy drum beat and low key vocals/samples make it also a little different to the mixes that have gone before, it works for me and keeps us shouting and dancing right the way through to the end.

Conclusion:
This EP is available by free download, so go ahead and download it. The EP is full of aggressive dance tracks with a lot of techno influence. I can't remember the last time I picked up an album/EP with seven mixes, including the Mo-Do cover and liked all 7. If you like Aggrotech, put it on and like I said get lost in it and then hope for the best. It may be a little less melodic than some of the bigger names in this genre, but if these guys make another album of this quality, the least I can do is pay for it. But I look forward to even better.
