Industrial/Electronic Realms : Acylum – “Karzinom” (2011)


Label : Alfa Matrix 

Review by Luisa Mercier

Pedro Engel, the mind behind the project Acylum, is always ready to challenge the ebm scene. The new full-length “Karzinom” follows the steps of the previous work “The Enemy” but with a different and much better production. Together with his wife Nadine Cooraz, he delivers tracks like “Shoot’em Up” and “Question” which take over the listener with their rythm, while “Deutsch” has lyrics that will sparkle criticism once again among the lovers of the genre. The orchestral arrangement only add layers to the tracks. Acylum have created an album of madness, but once again it’s a vision of a world you’ll want to visit again and again. It is confusing, alienating, but fascinating at the same time. So, you only have to start the trip to try with youe own ears.

Rating – 80/100
