X-Fusion - Beyond The Pale
EBM, Industrial X-Fusion started out as a demo band back in 1988 and has since that time released a number of demo records until 2003 when Jan Lehmkamper (which is the person behind X-Fusion) signed a contract with Dark Dimensions/Scanner and released his debut album 'Dial D for Demons'. This year he released his second album which is called 'Beyond the Pale'.

I must admit that I have some trouble making up my mind what I should write in this review. This is of that typical kind of production which is hard to have some particular opinion about. It's not bad, but it isn't great either. Hard, aggressive EBM alike so many other bands, but without any special to it accept a big love for organ.

Still I find two really great tracks on this record, "Dear God" and "Nothing To Loose". Unfortunately this album has a tendency to place itself in the background and there's just a few times you really listen up and get interested.

Instead I recommend you to listen to X-fusion's totally fabulous remix of Run Level Zero's "Under The Gun" which is placed as the second track on the last mentioned bands new E.P 'And Thus We Walked...'.
