The Coiled Effect
Really bon pour something so affreux
Yeah I like this one. Dark, harsh, haunting, painfull, mercyless...ok it's all some pretty easy way to describe this song..but it's the first thing that come to my mind when I listen to it. It's a punishing wall of sound, with some nice synth work in the too. It's not full assault noise, there's texture and subtle details and the artist create tension...there's this pummeling jackhammer beat. It's a good track. You've kept it short wich is a good idea because would'nt be able to take this for 7 minute. Of course there's much noisier stuff to be found out there, but this is effective not only because the noise factor is high, but because of the texture and mood it create. A great industrial track.
Ok this one is take a more, dare I say, classic approach. It's less experimental than you other track, and more with the industrial dance type of stuff.
Where your other track was short and to the poin, this kind of drag a little bit longer. The vocal really remind of Rob Zombie, not really in the tone of your voice, but because of the way it is treated digitally. Your lyrics look decent enough. Not your typical "everyone hate me" type of stuff that so many crappy band are doing now.
The production is really great. It sound huge and full. The synth line are a little bit repetitve though, and I'm not too crazy about the "tabla" (or ethnic percussion thing, don't really know what it is) part..seems kind out of place but that's just me. And these are just minor complain, and it don't really take anything away from the track. It's still enjoyable and greatly executed.
So overall a industrial-dance track. Nothing totally mind blowing, but really nice nonetheless. Good job !
