Krystal System – “Nuclear” (2011)


Label : Alfa Matrix

Review by Luisa Mercier

The French duo Krystal System release their second album after 2008 “Underground” and provide us with their industrial rock, perfect for gothic nights on the dancefloor. “Fiction” the opening track has a perfect hook, energetic beats and matches perfectly “Un Etat D’hypnose” that follows.

It will be a sure hit in gothic club. The familiar beats and synth sounds make the track a catchy one to listen to while the industrial guitars add aggressiveness and edge. Each subsequent track on the album combines these aspects producing a fast-paced and danceable collection of songs almost impossible to stand still while listening to.

These are songs for the gothic audience that will also appeal to dance-loving people with easily grasped hooks and beats. The use of male and female vocalists, Bonnie and Seven, creates different levels and allow the band to be both harsh and sexy. Krystal System do not write original music, that is for sure, but they do it well, so why not enjoy them?

Rating – 75/100
