X-Fusion - Thorn In My Flesh
EBM, Industrial X-Fusion is a band that has been around for quite some time and is known not only for the music, but also for the mastering art and for the band Noisuf-X.

Today I'm going to rant on a bit about the album 'Thorn In My Flesh', which is the latest release by X-Fusion. The album consists of 13 tracks with a mix of both really slow and some more faster and aggressive tracks. What I really love about Mr X-fusion is that he always manages to create a great atmosphere and a great mood around his albums and of course that his production is top notch.

Since he is a sound engineer he really knows how to create and build layers to make the tracks feel really powerful and at the same time really clean. I love the last album a lot (so much I gave it a 10), but this new album doesn't grip me as much as the old one. Somehow I feel it can be a bit too boring for me from time to time and I can't really grasp why.

There are some really powerful tracks on this album like ?Strange New World?, ?Thorn In My Flesh? and ?Just a Scar?, then there are a few other good ones but the rest seems to just disappear into the void and can't really match these powerful tracks. Nothing has really changed to be honest and there are no drastic differences, but maybe I've just outgrown the band a bit.

Either way this is a solid buy anyway and it's a good album, but I hope that maybe some things will change with the next release, nothing big, just something that give a bit of a new feeling to it.
