HI VOLTAGE III

You'd expect any compilation compiled by Johan Van Roy (Of Suicide Commando fame) to be dedicated to the harder end of electronic music and if that's what you're after then this excellent collection limited to 2222 copies, from the Dying Culture label, won't let you down.

It's fair to say that almost all of the (less well known) artists here owe a great debt to the classic Suicide Commando sound, including self confessed fans Aslan Faction, whose "Strych9" is not available on their debut album.This is a good way to get aquainted with many new artists such as Cryogene who open the album with an excellent dark track "Social Conditioning" or Kil67 whose "Plastic City" marks another promising name to look out for as well Dioxyde's hard hitting "Home (Ruhe Mix)" who have since released a well-received debut album.Dead State 81 are slower and slightly less complex than many of the tracks here although the harsh hate filled vocals will keep you on your toes. Empusae will appeal to the noise merchants among you although the second half of the track is a strange kind of musical litany that finishes up almost like a synthpop number, an array of constantly shifting styles that are intriguing to say the least.Prothese offer an impenetrable wall of rhythm with spikey bass sequencing and very little else, to be honest.Rosewater are similarly hard hitting and rhythmic but more progressive on their "Zemitan" track.Stin Statzor stay just the right side of harsh although their 'aggremade version' of "Let Me Rot" might prove something of an aquired taste for the unwary. f/a/v are quite chaotic but ordered on "Vorverstarker" before Mnemonic close the album in a more minimalistic style.

To give the album a more widespread appeal the rest of the 15 tracks are taken up by more established names such as Project X (here remixed by God Module), E.S.R., Solitary Experiments (with a stunning track entitled "The Essence Of Mind" which ought to gain them many new fans) and Noxious Emotion (remixed by Biopsy).Overall this all adds up to an unmissable compilation that will appeal to those who wish to expand their musical horizons and is further indication of a rosey and exciting future for dark electro music.
