Zensor - Bunker E.P
Industrial, Metal This E.P from Zensor is their first and only release so far. We're talking strong heavy guitars and industrial background sounds. The opening song on the album is "Nothing" which holds a very high standard. During the verse it's a synthetic drum together with a synth trail, which in the chorus pass over with disted, brutal guitars while the singer Sakari Jäntti screams out his message.

The second track "Residuum" is melancholic and industrial on a high level. There is no result from the guitars but it keeps a rhythmic industrial structure. The third track is totally instrumental with dark monotonous occasional sounds and works like some sort of intermezzo. To me it just feels like filling, which constitute interference in the otherwise so energypacked production.

The album finishes with the hardest track, "Intimat". It has a disted voice and the guitars feels heavier then on the other songs. This track make you sweat to just think of performing it live.

I have to say that the design of the album is extremely boring. It may just be an E.P but I still think they should put down a little more time and thought on the cover instead of just a black surface with no signs of style.

This is a Norwegian crossover which is really, really good. They are heavier then their Norwegian brothers Zeromancer and when the whole album is released I will listen to it with great interest.
