Album Review

'Unterwelt' was one of the more prominent tracks on the most recent SUICIDE COMMAND album 'When Evil Speaks', although 3/4 of the material included would've been perfectly suitable for a single/ EP release, the German tongues, staccato track made the cut. As is common nowadays, a lot of Johan's peers have taken pieces of the original composition and reshaped them in their own image. Sorry for the pun on the bible; won't happen again in this write-up at least. So following the single edit of the track, which is pretty much the track you already now... in short is the rendition of BINARY PARK who have taken all the distortion away to replace it with squeaky clean club beats.

While that falls on the mediocre side of things, the apocalypse cut, coming right afterwards is a real charm, goes really slows things down and adds deep textural sounds Not to bore you with the same track over and over again, a little alternation is provided with FRAGILECHILD's view on 'Monster', drifting off into yet uncharted territory. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall hearing symphonic sounds of that quality on an SC track or remix recently put out. A demo version of the then freshly released LESCURE 13 album 'Too Much...Motherf***Ers' helped foreshadowing the direction the revived project would be taking

The EP makes its unspectacular end with WYMARDTAGE's upbeat and nicely melodic remix of 'Unterwelt'. Well, since I'm not the biggest fan of remix wars; I was pretty damn sure I wouldn't find anything but club fodder on here. Fortunately, at least a few tracks are refreshingly different. Basically, it comes down to one thing: Are you a completionist or not?
