Neikka RPM – “Chain Letters” (2011)

Label : Alfa Matrix

Review by Luisa Mercier

The US-based industrial band Neikka RPM is back with its third release. “Chain Letters” is definetely an up-tempo record in which the industrial is mixed with club beats. The groove can be found in every second of it and the enigmatic vocals of Dominique make everything sexier.

Just listen to “Kingdom of Fire” to catch a glimpse of what previously said. Female vocals intertwine with male ones creating a cold, epic song. The whole album is a long, distorted journey through deep bass-lines and bewitching vocal lines.

At about half of the album you will find a reloaded version of “Here’s Your Revolution”, a real hit, uplifting. “Chain Letters” is a collection of short songs that all together will create an hypnotic walk trough dance grooves ( “Sum Corvus”) and creepy moments (“No One Is Beautiful”). A little bit different than the rest is “I Feel Your Pain”, which is more dreamy, ambient, without losing their dark feeling. A perfect way to close “Chain Letters”, an album which can be compared to a night tour in a contemporary city: full of lights, different colors, but with a gloominess, a basic darkness which cannot be ignored.

Rating – 80/100
