FallOut Nation Techno, Trance Extize FallOut Nation by Extize is a noise-filled cyber-goth extravaganza holding 15 dancefloor tracks with 2 remixes by FabrikC and The Ladder. This album isn't quite my cup of tea and by reading a few reactions and comments online, it's safe to assume that feelings are positive, balanced or negative, so really it's down to individual taste. Taking roots from Powernoise and combining aspects of Dark Electro and Trance, Extize create a cybergoth dominated sound. The sound is very 'raw' and crunchy or crispy, as one would expect from some Powernoise musicians, however again, not quite to my taste, could use a little more kick or bounce but it still works. Lyrics and vocals are... bearable, the accent is dominant in thevocals and while they do mix it up a bit in style, the lyrics really do run dry. I don't have much praise for this, it's an okay album, though I can't say I'll be listening to it any time soon. In all honesty, the album just sounds like a not so good Uberbyte copy. I wish there was more I could say on this, it's a shame to let this work that Extize have put into their art go to waste but there really is nothing left. It's a simple rhythmic noise spiced with external electronic elements designed for clubs and workouts. However, there is one track that I quite enjoyed, for it's slight variety and 'deeper' work which is 'We Are The Night', I'll be listening to that one again, I'm sure. Also the final track 'We Are The Night (feat. Nexus Nemesis)' is a unique track on the album, taken out of it's strong-electronic style and made into a melodic acoustic ballad with nice use of electric guitar.If you love dancefloors, raves and glowsticks, then this album is for you; if you're looking for something with a little more flair, then I don't recommend this album. 350
