Album Review

CREMATORY are back with a new album titled ‘Antiserum’, their first album in their new label Steamhammer / SPV. In this album CREMATORY are taking a big risk, they change their sound to a more electro orientated sound. In almost all of their albums they used some electronic elements but in this one they have the main role. Many parts of the album are influenced by bands like COMBICHRIST,RAMMSTEIN,PROJECT PITCHFORK and DEATHSTARS something which happens for first time in a CREMATORY record. Some things that remains the same is the growl vocals of Felix, Matthias’ guitar riffs (not many but there are some) and the German and English lyrics. My favourite tracks of the album are 'Until The End', 'Irony Of Fate', 'If You Believe' and 'Virus'.

The sound of the album is very good, something that was always one of the band's strong points. Unfortunately there are 3-4 bad songs in the album and this is the main weakness of ‘Antiserum’. I think with this album the old fans of the band will be disappointed because of the Electro/ EBM influences, the latest fans of the band will be pleased and hopefully the band will gain some new fans from the Dark Electro, EBM scene.
