In Motion Darkwave, Minimal Metal Disco Here's a promising collaboration from two established Greek synth groups, Metal Disco is Toxic Razor, one half of the minimal synth/darkwave act, Paradox Obscur and Incirrina vocalist Irina T. Metal Disco and Incirrina are both known for their desires to create seductive dark-driving dancebeats from the primordial ooze of analogue electronics. Incirrina established that with their incredible 8.15 LP saturated with shadowy rhythms brimming with inspiration from the writings English poetic William Blake, while Metal Disco continue to lurk in the moors where minimal synth and EBM germinate to yield way to Metal Disco's somewhat unique and enigmatic sound. My familiarity with Metal Disco had me step back initially as In Motion was a bit more polished and up-tempo than expected. Metal Disco's sound has its foundations, yet each release has a unique quality about it that sets itself apart from the other work. Somewhere along the way with In Motion, the seasoned ear will notice certain sounds that briefly call to the past with 80's techno, house, acid, EBM and new beat. Paired with the exceptional music, Irina T. adds the stunning vocal dynamic that showcases exceptional range and execution with each and every track on this EP, whether it's the faster paced "Tension (Stutter Monk Remix)" or the slower " Dimensions Of The Eye (Ambient Mix)". All six tracks belt out enticing compositions laced with 80's revelry and the Metal Disco/Incirrina touch. This is one of best EPs of the year so far. I love it the way it is. The selfish side of me wants this on a 12" with perhaps an Italo remix. Flemming Dalum are you busy?  Click here to start!   450
