Album Review

To start with, the Swedish NEUROBASH have an aspect that is rarely found in a typical Electro band; they change their members depending on the direction they want to take with their music. The constants are Patrick Nelson and Ewan Kelley who are the core of the band. And within this core we can find the struggle of the band with various layers of Electro and Synth music of the late 80’s. One of the most obvious results of this struggle happens in the ‘Inner Conflicts’ whereas the DEPECHE MODE feeling is sliced by harsher dance music. The experiment works fine in the laboratory but in this case you don’t have something unified and dense rather you’re reminded that the whole procedure has remained an experiment. The experiment was brilliantly performed but the patient is dead.

And yet, when the band succeeds in their experimentations as for example in ‘Consumed By Death’ -one of the best songs here - you have the feeling of not only of the potentials of the band in showing how influences work in order to provide something unique but also in terms of danceable songs that remain a fresh breath in the stale soundscape of the modern dance music. ‘Self-Destruct Mode’ proves to be a weird but excellent twist of DEPECHE MODE’s feeling, edgy and challenging. The ghost of DM is dominant in ‘The Future Is Bright They Say’ to the point the band made me think they are in a desperate need of an exorcist not of musicians. Overall you’ve been left with the feeling the NEUROBASH bite more than they can chew. To struggle with the stereotypes and to question them requires a bit more than the presentation of a clash among them. And I’ll repeat myself; when the band succeeds in doing so the results are fantastic.
