Alter of Evolution Industrial, Metal Murder Love God Alright, last time Murder Love God was brought to attention on the site, they were met with a very, very bad review (Death Circle Blues) and were not well appreciated. I've never listened to them before, so I decided to take a gander at that album first, and I have to agree with everything that was said. However, this is a remix album that culminates their...talent as well as the talents of other artists. And, to sum things up quite easily, my ears are hurting, but not in the good way. You see, it's not necessarily the artists that take a stand on the remix album fault that it sucks so bad; they're coming from some pretty bad source material in the first place, and have to turn shit to something that tastes good. Put pepper and salt on it all you want, but fecal matter will remain rotten no matter what. Those are my exact thoughts on this album. One of the artists that I've heard on this album before would be that of N Y X, where I heard him on Evil Sinema vol. 2. I gave the album a good review, and the project didn't do a bad job with their songs on the album, either. However, here I find myself listening to a spooky remix of Optifail on this album, and it's not really the beat that suffers, but it's the uninspired lyrics that destroy the song. So, I really just can't get into this album. At all. It's bad to me, and there might be some good beats within the songs, but then the vocals come in and tear that foundation down. Hell, I think some of these songs might work well as just plain instrumentals, but that's not the case. I am saddened by this album, and need to move on rather than just sitting upon it. 1

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.
