Location: Cold Room Rhythmic Noise, Dark Electro Child from the Crypt There's a little bit of me that gets excited every time I'm sent a Demo from an Industrial band from Greece. I blame PreEmptive Strike 0.1 and Nano Infect for this. This demo is...interesting. Child from the Crypt (a name which amuses or baffles most people) is the project of a Greek musician, who I shall refer to as "D". Previously, a demo was released entitled "Black Noisous Distress" - predominately Rhythmic Noise in its nature, despite it's low-key production, behind its façade there was some potential. "D" is more than aware of this, as with the release of "Location : Cold Room" (Excellent title), he has put the previous works on the shelf, and deemed them unfit for public consumption. Let's see how much has changed. Four tracks. Good decision for a demo. Wait. Something is wrong. This isn't Rhythmic Noise. "God's Sign" is Dark Electro, with elements of Aggrotech and TBM. It even has decent sampling now. Excellent start. Is this the same project? Is it the 1st of April? Am I drunk? This is like taking a punch-drunk Hillbilly and turning them into a well-dressed English Professor with an annoyingly posh mannerism. "Not a Meat for me" is Dark Electro as well. What's with the title though? Is this about Vegetarianism, or just an innate hatred for Pork? I'm not sure I care to be honest. After hearing first-hand how much "D" has evolved and progressed, he could call this song "Look Mom! My hand is Chalky!" and I'd be impressed. "Poisoned Mouth" and "Screaming for Love" continue in the same vein, and before you realise it, the 21 minutes have passed and you're sat, blinking rapidly, like a virgin who's just sat on a traffic cone. Excellent Demo. 450
