Waterskills EBM Cycloon The first thing that struck me when I first heard Cycloon was that the felt sometimes very alike the band Megadump, but a little bit harder and heavier. I started to look for direct links between them and I didn't get disappointed. Cycloon have got some help from Müller from Megadump on 'Waterskills' and Cycloon is on the same label as the earlier mention band. If you want to pinpoint it even harder you could also mention that Cycloon (or Axel Kleintjes which is his real name) also play live keyboards for Megadump. Cycloon has earlier received help from members from bands like Pierrepoint and yelworC, so you who now about these bands know what kind of music we are talking about. This record reach its heights with the tracks "God Blessed:Remorse", "Confinement" and "The Relic" with their simple, smart chords and brutally cosy base. You should also mention the tracks "Genesis" and "Waterskills" which have that special atmosphere which reminds me of Front Line Assembly's earlier works. This is simply something for all the dance floors out there. This album also contains more instrumental parts which unfortunately tend to withdraw the tempo the earlier mentioned songs build up. If they had skipped those tracks and had successfully produced some more heavy EBM-tracks the wholeness of this record would have increase considerable. Still I have opened my eyes for Cycloon and I will most defiantly keep them open for that name in the future. This review was written 2004 and initially published on Neurozine.com 450
