ASLAN FACTION

SIN-DROME OF SEPERATION

After the success of the album "Blunt Force Trauma" and a heavy period of touring the UK duo Aslan Faction are back with a seriously heavy EP that will knock your socks off! In comparison to their earlier work this is faster, more immediate, more danceable and even more powerful into the bargain. The much-mentioned Suicide Commando influence is still present, perhaps even more so than previously which I'm sure was not the idea but the extended, tension-filled instrumental opening of "Hell On Earth" or the instrumental "Event Decay" definately evoke the cold SC style and "Tight Grip" also bears more than a passing resemblance (especially the harsh vocals!). Still, when the tracks are as good as these it matters not a jot as this thunderously powerful music bulldozes it's way into your brain instantly upon first listening. Even better is "Soul Obstruction" with it's heavy rhythms and infectious leadlines proving to be the perfect synthesis of power and melodics while the slightly more melodic chorus of "Weep For Me" allows some light to shine through the darkness.

The remixes retain, by and large the hard EBM stylings of the originals with each act adding something of their own styles. There's nothing that differs radically from the originals which is hardly surpsing when you consider that a number of them are executed either by Fiendflug and DavaNtage who are both on Black Rain (Noitekk's sister label), bands such as Dioxyde and C-Drone Defect who operate in essentially the same territory or Slaave Desolation (a new name to me) who also stay well within the established format. The Retrosic's version of "Hell On Earth" is more in keeping with that act's darker style and serves to underline the differences slightly. That these mixes differ so little from the originals mean they get a bit tiresome when taken in one go and greater emphasis on original material would have been welcome. This is balanced by the fact that Aslan Faction have gone from strength to strength with these storming tracks which makes this an EP still worth having if you like your music hard hitting and uncompromising.

I have to say this is a great band. Soul Obstruction remixed by Dioxyde and Weep For Me are just great songs. The others are also pretty good. I would recommend this band to anybody who likes band like Suicide Commando or Hocico.
