Your Bunny Rot - Error Injection
EBM, Electro-Industrial I guess this really is one of those moments where the pure scope and range of the Industrial scene is met. Hailing from Israel, upcoming project Your Bunny Rot caused a little bit of a stir with the digital only "Warship" single. Typically un-noticed by the general audience, it did enough to be picked up by Tommy T over at DSBP - a label I have great respect for, even though admittedly I've not always warmed to a number of the releases on the roster, when Tommy puts something out that I dig, I tend to seriously dig it.

Anyway, I digress a bit - Your Bunny Rot consists of Yaron Osinsky and Costa Ivanzov, and marks only the second time I've heard of an Industrial band from the Holy Land - Power Electronics act "Barzel" being the first. Despite the unusual name (German act "Rabbit at War" also seem to have some sort of psychotic floppy-eared thing going on), Your Bunny Rot drew me enough to pick up the CD and give it a detailed play-by-play. Let's take a look at why.

"Live Now" starts the gears rolling, and it's surprisingly great. Your Bunny Rot is basically well written EBM / Industrial, married to catchy clean vocals (distorted at times), with highly addictive hooks and a polished production. At its most accessible it's Era II Mortiis meets Pittersplatter, with heavier synth and pronounced bass. I feel the need to tread carefully using words such as "groundbreaking" and "Original" as this release really isn't either of those.

"Error Injection" starts off heavy, heavy, heavy, reminiscent of Industrial Metal at one of its finer hours. It's fast and furious, but I feel the finer tracks are yet to come.

As for "X52", we are seriously talking now! A gorgeous vocal melody starts the song, reminding me of Mortiis' vocal on "Smell of Rain", slowly courting us into a low-tempo drum section. It's insanely catchy and memorable - which is the thing this act does really, really fucking well. This song has "Single" written all over it.

To be honest with you, I try to save the long track by track reviews for bigger albums. 'Error Injection' is brilliant and genial, but it's not anything so new or technically advanced that it's going to win awards. What I can assure you of is that I love every minute of this release. The unique vocal, with the catchy music is a formula that's worked very, very well for me.

What I will do is point out one single track that I absolutely adore. Entitled "Mestema Blasphemy", the synth melody and vocal chorus are both beautiful beyond belief. I could listen to this all day, it's so well written and put together. This, dear reader, is one of the main reasons that I think Your Bunny Rot may actually get somewhere. Happy to combine heavy Industrial sequences and seriously melodic EBM/Goth choruses, there's so much on here that makes me smile.
