Impact Zone
Artoffact Records

Blank releases yet again, another solid album of ebm hits with "Impact Zone." It's sure to set fire to clubs around the globe with it's high energy ebm-fuled dance floor rhythms. Their sound is definitely influenced by trance and techno, which is fine, but it's just a little too by the book and formulaic. This style has been done by so many bands that to my ears, it doesn't really stand out that much. The beats are pretty standard 4/4 and fast paced, the synths moody and emotional, and the vocals slightly processed. As I said, it's a dead on dance floor winner for sure, but it's not going to set records for originality.
