Anckora – “Экстрим” EP (2014)

Label: Irond

Review by Vard Aman

Anckora formed in Moscow in 2006, initially as a more standard Symphonic Metal band before morphing into the Industrial Metal sound they have now. They released a demo in 2007 and a couple of EPs in 2010 before releasing their debut album “Машина” in 2011. That’s pronounced “Mashina”, which means “Machine” in the context of this album (rather than “Car”, which is its most common use in Russia). They followed this up with their second album “Открой Мне Дверь” in 2013 (“Otkroy Mne Dver”, which roughly translates as open the door for me). Now they have a new EP out, “Экстрим” ( “Extreme”).

And, yes, it is pretty extreme! Anckora have mastered a harsh and heavy Cyber/Industrial Metal sound, greatly emphasized by Katrin Antares‘s rasping, snarling vocals; heavy Rammstein-eque guitars; and driving rhythms. Continue reading »

Diehard – “When Illusion Gone” (2011)

Independent Release

Review by Luisa Mercier

Diehard is a very young German band; they were founded in 2010 and released their first album at the begininning of 2011. They play a quite standard industrial metal, well produced and well sung and inform us that the album is a concept: “The lyrics of this album has one conceptual line. It shows our opinion about some global questions such as “How does the other side of our reality look like?”, “What does global illusion mean?”. It tells also about the world system and inner possibilities of everyone. We can change our reality and create our own world, it’s true. All we need is a high level of consciousness. “When Illusions Gone”, move your mind into another reality!” The first thing that strikes the listener is the intro “Dies Irae” which is quite different from the rest of the album: ambient/folk tinged music with choirs that pave the way for the electronics and the metal that follows.

Desdemona – “Endorphins” (2012)

Label : Danse Macabre Records

Review by Luisa Mercier

Desdemona is a Polish industrial rock band and “Endorphins” is their fourth full-length effort after a break due to singer Agnieszka having a serious accident that forced her in the intensive care for a long period. The album is worth the wait: it is full of dance beats, great hooks, guitar riffs and soaring vocals. An example is the lead single “Bring in All” which comprise all of these elements and will sound good even in a normal disco club, as well as “Poison”, “Jealous Sky” (one of my favourite with its killer hook and amazing produced vocals). In the end of the song you will even find a dubstep outro. “Devil’s Game” is more traditional industrial rock/metal while “Sorrow” is a gothic-tinged ballad, gloomier and quite different from the fun atmosphere that is found in the rest of the album. The vocal performance is top notch. Continue reading »

Helalyn Flowers – “White Me In Black Me Out” (2013)

Label : Alfa Matrix

Review by Davide Torresan

Born in 2006, the Italian Helalyn Flowers reach the goal of the 3rd album after a couple of nice works like “A Voluntary Coincidence” and “Stitches of Eden”. This duo of musicians is formed by Nøemi Aurøra and Max, and they propose a rather original sound that mixes industrial, rock, an abundant use of electronics and the beautiful voice of the singer Nøemi.

“White Me In Black Me Out”, like the title suggests, shows us the two faces of a medal: one white, calm and melodic, and another one, black, dark and chaotic with its guitar riffs and some overwhelming refrains that will punch you brutally in the face. Continue reading »
