fatal error
mental ulcer forges   2000

album rating: 3

The long awaited second coming of Infact is here, moving into even more solid aggressive EBM/electro programming with less emphasis on string elements and more sacrifice towards analog melodies, militant rhythms, and effects.

Mario M. continues his perfect blend of both masters of EBM/dark electro Johan Van Roy & Rudy R. Programming aspects are a complete mold of these musicians with a slightly different perception. Tracks such as "Fatal Error", "Hard Life", "Compression" & "Grievously Wrong" provide nice heavy crushing beat structuring with addictive melodic analog patterns contrasted and emphasized with the enraging vocals.

Track four "Fear" gives us taste of very accessible EBM chord progressions and melodies are quite simple but very effective. Track nine "Exile & Death" presents menacing slow surrounding melodies that are infected with phasing vocals and simple percussives.

Suicide Commando throws in a nice static beat driven mix of title track "Fatal Error." While Wumpscut presents a very powerful and relentless percussive driven mix of "Cold Blood" that proves to be a very strong track for the floor.

In conclusion, a brilliant continuation of his last release "Go Away" and progressions towards possibilities of new forms of EBM. Artwork by the brilliant designers at Morph Arts/Zoom and mastered at Rudy R. studio with photography by Heike W.
