Bahntier - Revulsive
Bahntiers back with a new release that continues
where Randome left off. With dark, pulsating beats that would
fly well on any club dancefloor, the music reminds us what industrial
is. There is no futurepop in this release.
With minimally distorted, hollow, yelling and determined
vocals, Im reminded of the good old days of industrial when
industrial music was industrial music. Just some of the vocals are
reminiscent of older Puppy and in fact some of the music reminiscent
of that good ol 80s industrial dancefloor feel. But this is
not a retro-sounding CD.
Prepare to be put into a trance of sorts as your senses
are pleasured with the angst and energy that only industrial music
has in that danceable sort of way. Why a trance? There
is not so much typical verse-chorus-verse structure
in the songs. Rather, youll hear a chain of beats and rhythms
that repeat, with vocals coming in and out. Some listeners could
find this monotonous, but in the right frame of listening mind,
you will find yourself lost in this CD in the best of ways.
My favourite tracks are Entrapvoices, Scratched Back,
Inauguration of Doom, and Type-1. I believe these best represent
this review. Other tracks from this release might seem a bit more
drawn out and less interesting to me.
If you liked Randome, youll surely enjoy
