Demo Industrial, Experimental Digiflesh If enthusiasm is a foundation for quality, we need to consider Digiflesh as an artist that most homes should have a release by. Rob Goldfinger, recording under the name "Digiflesh", is the kind of musician you just want to give a handshake too. Not content with a particular style, Digiflesh has numerous tracks available, ranging from Industrial to Instrumental, oft-careering into the territories of Industrial Rock, before dusting itself off and returning back to the Instrumental roots. This 5 track demo is solely to generate public interest (although aren't ALL demos?), and as showcases go, I can honestly say I've heard worse. "Beyond The Edge", for example, is an instrumental piece of hard industrial that doesn't 'quite' make the grade, yet composes itself like a slightly merry auntie at the family wedding. There's surprise and a wave of doubt when you first encounter it, but you find yourself wanting to experience it again. Drum work aplenty in "From Within", which immediately disassociates itself with the previous track. "Serious Damage", towards the end of the demo, is more synth-laden than anything else on here, and despite the lack of vocals on this demo, I can see the musical acumen that Rob has. I honestly can't say that this is incredible, and everyone should want to sign it, and it would be an insult to Rob to lie to him to that degree, but there is charm and skill to the music that is available here. If nothing else, Digiflesh is an awesome name. Advising the artist, as all demo reviews should I recommend the following : - - Slightly more variety. I'm happy enough with this, but I can also see areas where other listeners may not be. - I'd be very keen to hear the implementation of vocal work, or at the least some sampling. - Keep doing what you are doing with regards to PR. You are out there on all of the important networks and Social media sites. You've got the knack of marketing yourself, and I think the audience will come. - Clear musical confidence and ability. 350
