International Remixes EBM, Electro-Industrial Biocarbon13 Biocarbon13 is back with another album, which consists of only remixes. This eleven track album is mostly in the EBM genre. Opening the album is "Finland (Schultz)", which is basically an instrumental track with spoken vocals in the background. I think they should have opened the album with a stronger track. This track is minimal in impact. "Swallow (Sputnik Electronic)" is a club track which is danceable and the way the vocals are done, it sounds like a darker version of Assemblage23's music. "Till Spring (God's Black Magic remix)" is a slow stomping song and would be fun to dance to. I really liked this track. "Swallow (Deimos remix)" is a slower and darker version on the "Swallow" song, but not as impressive as the Sputnik remix. "Once Upon A Time (Toxic13 remix by PSIN)" is a mix of club style, symphonic and Electronica mixed together. "Finland (Suture Self)" is a very slow and dark mix of the song. It is not danceable and is more of a sit and listen song, probably with the lights out and candles burning. "Good To Live (Entrzelle)" is a medium tempo, stomping club mix and has some good synthesizer riffs and melody lines in the background. I liked the way the vocals were done on this song. They are dark and brooding and very Gothic in style. This is another good mix for the album. "Once Upon A Time (Infinity Interrupt)" is slow, dark and has a lot of crushing beats and sounds. This version, to me, is stronger than the Toxic13 remix. "Swallow (Asmodeus X)" is a strong club mix and pumps up the song for the dancefloor. The synthesizer riffs add a lot to this mix and it is another strong track on the album. "FP-T6 (OWKMS)" is more of a noise and abient track. It sounds like a space voyage soundtrack and is somewhat cinematic with the sounds and strings playing throughout. Towards the end, some beats are added to give it a bit more punch, but it is still just an instrumental done in cinematic style. "UVN (Maniak)" closes out the album and is a heavy stomping track. If you like hard beats and tons of hits and kicks with soaring synthesizer riffs, then you should like this track. The album has some good remixes on it, and some of them are danceable, but I would not expect to hear more than two of these mixes played in the club. The production is pretty good and there is a good variety of styles portrayed throughout. If you are looking for dark tracks to play while getting ready for the club or winding down from the club, then this album might be a good choice. 450
