Never Ending Torture Harsh EBM, Industrial Kaos-Frequenz Kaos-Frequenz is a German one man band by Torsten Kroke. First the band was called Koma-Frequenz, but since that name was already taken, it later changed to the name it is today. 'Never Ending Torture' is the debut album and was released on Sonic-X in 2008. Kaos-Frequenz is straight forward hard-punching harsh EBM. By the sound of that, I'm quite sure you all get excited, but don't get to blown away; there are some major issues with this album. The beat is pretty much the same throughout the whole album; you got a steady pounding without any variation, it's just the broken industrial beat from start to finish. I feel that I'm in many cases are lacking some sort of melody that really stands out, part form the blipping and bopping behind the base line. It get's better during some of the instrumental tracks, but then again, during instrumental tracks you are pretty much forced to make it a bit more interesting. I'm not too keen on the distorted vocals, they feel a bit cheap, there's a lot of other ways to make the voice sound a lot cooler with different distortions. Now I really have beaten this album black and blue, but I have one last complaint and that is the mastering (rather the lack of), feels very much demo all over this production. You are able to find a couple of decent tracks on this album; "Betrayer" is pretty alright, with a little more highlighted melody. This album is not a never ending torture; it's more like a 60 minute itch on your back that you can't reach. However, I still have Kaos-Frequenz latest EP release to review, perhaps I will have a better experience with that one. 250
