Ultimate Abyss Electronics, Industrial Sphere Lazza Sphere Lazza were formed already back in '92 as a Techno/Industrial project by Tony Spaz. After some failed collaborations with some vocalists he finally found David Trousdale with his influences from Front 242 and Front Line Assembly drove the band against the EBM-genre. The band released their first album '94 by the name 'Incinerate' and a second album '95 with the name 'The Enemy Within' together with Alex LaFrantz on guitar and Jason Smith on drums. When the band worked on their third album in '97 they had lost their focus and the project where closed. Many years later Spaz and Trousdale started up the project again, mostly for fun, but later on it evolved to a serious matter again, now as a duo. Now the band is back with their new Maxi CDS called 'Ultimate Abyss'. The band play kind of a soft Techno-EBM which really not stand out, but Trousdale''s voice does it. When I heard the voice spin away in the chorus it really reminded me of another singer and it took me quite some time to figure it out. After a while I new it was Tim Armstrong from Rancid which he reminded me of. Trousdale have occasionally a really great voice with a style you don't hear that often in the EBM-genre. Hopefully they will use this to their advantage. Even though this isn't the best I've heard I'm still curious about their releases in the future and how they will evolve. Very interesting.
