Panic Lift - Witness to Our Collapse

How to differentiate between the music of Panic Lift and that of Suicide Commando & friends? Frankly, I don’t know. It’s the same kind of sharp, very aggressive, heavily distorted vocals accompanied by electronic sounds (be they fast or slow, smooth or edged) cut up by various samples. So maybe there is a certain condensation of aggression and a level of distortion that causes uncontrollable throes in the more sensitive listeners (also on the dance floor)?

Red Emprez - On the Leash

What do you sing about most often? I dare claim the answer is love. Sometimes also death (actual or metaphorical). And all kinds of suffering. Sometimes you juxtapose it all (for better or for worse), combining it with melodies – slow or fast, lyrical or aggressive – to get… just what exactly? A universal product like a ready-made meal? Watch out – when it comes to Red Emprez, that kind of approach will get you nowhere. True, On the Leash talks a great deal about emotions, but it’s certainly not as simple a creation as some sentimental romantics would like it to be.

Deathcamp Project - Rule and Control

“Rule and Control” is probably the most popular and recognisable song by Deathcamp Project: it appeals to lovers of smoking guitars, dynamism, sexy elements, rock’n’roll power and stylish compositions. No wonder then that it was released as a single – Rule and Control offers us three versions of the song, so any fan of this musical cupcake will be fully satisfied. Additionally, you can also hear the album version of “Another;” both tracks are featured on Well-Known Pleasures, which is to appear on October 13.
