  • CD review - "Beloved Enemy"

    30 Aug 2009, 14:21 by cloneyounow



    Title: Beloved Enemy
    Artist: Jesus on Extasy

    Album Review

    They came to breathe new life into the “dead” industrial genre and their first album crushed in like a bomb and they quickly became a hype in the Goth scene, but a good one in this case as the five are all talented musicians. With their second instalment ‘Beloved Enemy’, JESUS ON EXTASY prove that they’re not a nine day wonder and ready to stay.

    Already the first and at the same time title-giving song ‘Beloved Enemy’ shows the quality blend of post industrial elements here represented by tine atmospheric textures and sequencer lines with driving drums and pushing guitar riffs, while the following ‘Change the World’ conjures up a much gloomier atmosphere. Atmosphere is also a major element in ‘Break you Apart’ and the guitars are comparatively reluctant there, but the rhythmic parts with shifting rhythms and tempo is very interesting to listen to over and over again.

    The alternation of very calm parts and breakouts of angry has been pushed to the extreme with the song ‘Lies’, starting with fast-paced, hammering drums and sequences combined with screaming vocals and when you expect it least, the songs slows down all of a sudden. The mood gets darker, piano dabs appear and Dorian’s chant turns to a reluctant one marked with a pinch of fragility. Really like that song. ‘You don’t know anything’ is such a song, where the fusion of the industrial and rock elements is just perfect. The transitions are absolutely fluently, so you can’t tell, where the one thing ends and the other one starts. Just like it has to be! ‘Dead Presidents’ is another favourite of mine. It deals with the willingness of selling your soul for a handful of dollars. ‘Sometimes’ is the concluding track and what a track, a real power-ballad, blending classic, electronic and rock elements.

    ‘Beloved Enemy’ is a worthy successor for the debut ‘Holy Beauty’ it picks the approaches, develops them further and combines them with new elements and ideas. All I can say is: Well done!

    Tracklist:
    1. Beloved Enemy
    2. Change the World

  • Bring back the old style?

    22 Jul 2008, 16:41 by HerrTwiggs

    Well, when Audioscrobbler became Last.fm we all cried, then a new layout came and then another. We have to stick with it and I'm sure the team will work on the known issues.

    Do you really believe they will bring back the old design after they worked hard on new features? Yeah, sure, sweet dreams.

    I first disliked the new layout, but I learned to stick with it. Try it too and wait a few days. The Last.fm-crew will do their best as always.
  • After the Burial - Rareform

    21 Jul 2008, 09:20 by BrandonHeat

    Well I haven't done this in a while due to the lack of draw dropping albums but honestly, the first time I listened to this, swear to god, there were some draw droppers
    anyways if you're a fan of straight up wailin', metalcore as fuck riffs, math metal breakdowns, or music in general or whatever who gives a fuck... definitely give this one a listen. Great Album.
