Good Filth Darkwave, Trip Hop Luci Ferrum This review was commissioned. However, it bears no weight on the score or decision. All reviews are written from an unbiased standpoint. Luci Ferrum is a relatively new producer on the scene who got her start in February of 2024 with the single ‘Devil Got Nothing On Me’. A blend of gothic tinged atmospheres and trip-hop, Luci Ferrum continued onward and released two additional singles ‘Take Me’ and her most recent ‘Good Filth’ in April and May respectively. Good Filth by Luci FerrumThere’s a part of me that enjoys ‘Good Filth’ and another that can’t stand it. I like it as I do think the instrumentals are quite different from what we hear in the industrial scene on a normal basis. As stated above, it’s a very atmospheric track with a rhythm that’s almost hard to predict. It’s nothing too harsh or aggressive yet neither is it placid and content. It’s moving and organic. However, where Luci Ferrum falls is in her production value; this doesn’t sound complete, it sounds raw and as if it were a demo more than anything else; the mix is bad, to be blunt. I also find her vocals to be mediocre; there’s nothing wrong with them as she does more spoken word lyrics than anything, but there’s nothing great about them either. They are serviceable, nothing more or less. I think that Luci Ferrum can have a bright future ahead for herself if she can stick the landing. But right now the landing is coated with slick grease and marbles and she’s slipping up. Some professional input is desperately needed, or at least further knowledge on music production. An interesting song is what I’d call it, but one that’s below average by a smidge.  350

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
