Album Review

The compilation, simply entitled ‘Swedish EBM – The Collection’ seems to be intended to demonstrate the variety of representatives of Swedish electronic scene. Apparently, most of the bands are not so well-known to listeners yet it doesn’t concern devoted fans of the style. As for me, before I heard DUPONT and a bit about SPETSNAZ. However, the other bands presented on the album don’t really demonstrate something extraordinary with the potential to win the hearts of listeners with the first sounds of the compositions. All the songs share the same common features of the genre, but of course every formation leaves their mark on their music. So the collection opens with racy ‘Satiric Strokes’ by SPETSNAZ and then everything carries on in the same way: Sonic minimalism doesn’t spoil driving, danceable compositions with powerful measured beats. Among the tracks I can mark out are ‘Yellow Mica’ by NO SLEEP BY THE MACHINE and ‘The Directors Cut’ by ASTMA, although all the pieces have their moments and definitely lovers and sympathizers of electronic music won’t be disappointed.
