Artist: Y-luko
Title: Kerion Celsi
Format: CDS (CD Single)
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
Y-luko is an artist that hails from both Germany and Chicago. He works with Leo as well, who is also heavily involved in this band. He is respected everywhere and is even working many respected individuals. He is a very hardworking individual that never stops putting out good music. One of the tracks I liked the most was Track 13- Empty Again, reminded me of earlier Current 93, very thought provoking and very spritual. He sings, "my soul is born to exist", very powerful and all knowing. Track 14- Ecstasy ( yrzzwe) is a very dansy track reminscent of something from Cold Meat Industry. Heavy vocals with oil drumming sounds, Y-luko sings, "from nowhere to go so far away have to deal with my pain." Marching beats in the background and electronics everywhere exploding like a nuclear war. This track stands by itself and is the headliner for this album, even though it is second to the last track on cd. The rest of the cd is well produced and is also dansy as well. Look for Y-luko to always rock the house and with such great people he works with, his fame will always be known. 5-stars
Artist: Infinity Interrupt (@)
Title: Antartica Starts Here
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
Infinity Interrupt is a duo consisting of Jacob Fisher and Jason Walker. This band hails from the Chicagoland area. Antarctica Starts Here is a very diverse album not like anything I've heard before. Every track on this album would be very fitting for a sci-fi soundtrack, thats for sure. Track five- Half-Life 23 stuck out the most. Haunting background vocals from Christine from Flutter- a an chicagoland ethereal band compliment this track, jacob sings, "we he send his angels or has we fallen from the sky?" while samples of over dubbed movie scores take over. This band has the most things going on in each track. Track after track is like a space ride to infinity literally. Infinity Interrupt plays on August 28th, 2004 at 836 w. Aldine, Chicago, Il ..come check out this band definately from another world. 5-stars
Artist: Mind Flux Funeral (@)
Title: Corrupt Me
Format: CD
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
Mind Flux Funeral is a duo consisting of Jason Prost- drums and programming and T Smith- vocals and programming. Quite very versatile individuals that really get us into the groove. This band hails from the Chicagoland area and are hitting venues and playing out everywhere. Thirdwave Collective houses them as one of their main acts. Mind Flux Funeral even has a dvd thats available with video/audio/ and pictures, for booking email jprost@num.com or tsmith@headgearmedia.com. One of the most favourite tracks of mine is "Cuts the Skin", a heavy industrial track that got me moving in my seat as I typed this review. Tony sings, "Where is your god now?" laughing samples laughing at you in the background and just plain good old school drumin in your head. one other track that stuck out is Track four- Ritual, lots of horror samples and creepy electronic sounds that blended well. Tony sings, " Come on , don't stop now!" singing in a metalic hard voice as if this is the words of god. This band has visuals to go with their stage presence. Theatrical makeup, great lighting and lots of surprises. Takes us back to the old school , Ministry, Revco, Skinny Puppy daze which are their major influences to boot. This band has lots of tricks up their sleeves and who knows, you make snap your fingers and the fun in the funeral may be right under your nose. -5 stars
Artist: Tragic Black (@)
Title: The Sixx Premonitions
Format: CD EP
Label: self-released
Rated: *****
Tragic Black hails from Salt Lake City, Utah. Vision -lead vocals and programming, Vyle-Keyboards, backing vocals and programming and Stitch- Bass, Backing Vocals and Programming. This trio is the hottest deathrock/batcave band that is hitting the circuit. Tragic Black is fresh new blood for all. The new ep has six tracks and all of them are unique in every way. Three tracks really stood out the most and really grabbed me and kicked my deathrock ass. Track two - Surreal Catharsis is quite catchy. Vision sings, "bringing the darkness to show them the light" over heavy haunting guitar and symphonic beats. "The Black Chrysalis'" (Spritual Metamorphasis) was became a truely instant favorite of mine. Vision sings to us in a dark disturbing way," here we adore the black chrysalis" as a ode to it. Haunting surreal keyboards shroud visions voice and smother him and he rises above as he sinks into the unknown. Perhaps the most memorable and instant danse hit is Track four- "Faith in Decay" Heavy symphonic beats with churchyard keyboard sounds with Vision singing " Stigmata playing in your mind" with apocalyptic sound samples backing him and repetitive words, " faith in decay when youre chanting the words, faith in decay" , truely a serenade for the death of religion. This track is dansy and quite moving, even the gods awoke to danse to it. The rest of the ep is exceptional as well, each track tell stories that are teasing us and leading us into wanting to know more. Very cleverly written and telling the masses we have arrived and theres more to come. Tragic Black shed light to a world of deathrock that seemed dim. -5 stars

Artist: PAOLO VENEZIANI
Title: The first floor / The puddle ep
Format: CD
Label: TIBprod (@)
Rated: *****
Paolo Veneziani is an Italian electronic musician who has lately focused his activities on graphic design, while still releasing music now and then, as in a recent mp3 release on TIBprod. TIBprod itself re-releases Veneziani's early compositions, namely "The first floor" (1996-1997, 6-track cdr) and "The puddle ep" (1996, 4-track cdr), with a new layout. Considering that they were conceived and played quite a while ago, I think they've grown up quite well - Veneziani's ambient electronica is not my cup of tea, but it still has interesting edges that make the listening experience worthwhile. Imagine a mix of synth-driven cosmic ambient, minimal beats and some more recognizable soft melodies, and you'll get the picture.
