Incredible new release for Ground Under Productions which from the Australian underground brings to light a new e.b.m. industrial act called Stark. Their WIELD E.P. will make no hostages because its eight songs are killer ones. If you are sick of waiting new Wumpscut tracks and you feel kinda nostalgic about his early releases or if you need more Hocico in your life this is for sure your new addiction. Since the first track this E.P. presents a band with an "in your face attitude" but with a good taste about arrangements. You know, distorted is better but if you use the right melody/sounds with stops and go and everything that is able to pump the adrenalin in your body that's so good... The three versions of "Wield" (the only song take form the forthcoming album titled "The Surgical Suite") are cool but also the other five tracks, "Pattaya", "On Your Skin", "Exquisite Pain (Chance)" and the instrumental "Venus" and "Lifestyle" are able to show Stark's skills immediately. They are no clones and are worth your attention!
