Sinner Industrial, Techno Street Fever This review was commissioned. However, it bears no weight on the score or decision. All reviews are written from an unbiased standpoint. I’m not going to go on another rant about how industrial music as a whole does not have the best vocalists – that would be redundant at this point. But we can easily put Street Fever into the category of musicians who don’t have a very powerful set of chords. The reason I mention this has merit; and that’s that the musician can’t match the feverish energy of his music with his vocals on his latest single ‘Sinner’.Sinner by Street FeverThe rampant beat slams a hardened techno beat through your speakers and doesn’t relent. It’s a grand mixture of well thought out noise and experimental rhythms. From the very intro with the alarm like synthesizers leading into the meat, to the rave-like mid-section, there’s hardly an ounce of wasted space on ‘Sinner’. There’s a lovely section in the middle of the song where the bass disappears and we’re left with digitally altered vocals and the alarm like synths playing us up until Street Fever throws us straight back into his electronic mosh. All-in-all, most of the song is grand. The only unnecessary segment of ‘Sinner’ is the outro that begins around the three-minute and twelve-second mark. Rather than being a breakdown or a coy little sample before the beat bashes back through the wall, it’s a thirty second piece of noise that didn’t do anything for me aside from wish it would stop. So, basic lessons from the single; get your voice to match the energy of the beat somehow, cause while they’re passable, they’re also not doing anything great. And don’t end a song with thirty seconds of nonsense; on a playlist it’ll just make me press the next or skip button.  BUT, the music? Nah, don't change that. That's phenomenal and I'm currently diving through your discography now. Vinyl sometime soon?  450

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.
