Angelspit had a dilemma. After the masterpiece Krankhaus, their momentum stalled with the lackluster Blood Death Ivory. Many tracks on that album were largely indistinguishable from one another, with little of the instrumentation or atmosphere so prevalent on its predecessor. After a remix disc based on BDI came Hideous and Perfect. Though stylistically very similar to BDI, it was far better executed and recaptured some of the energy Angelspit seemed to have lost. Personally, I like to think of Hideous and Perfect as the album BDI was supposed to be. Still, the formula was becoming stale, with some of the same beats and sounds being regurgitated multiple times over multiple albums.

So here we have Hello My Name Is. We see Angelspit with two new band members (*cough cough* I mean three...sorry about that). They've added a guitarist, a drummer...and a visual artist. I'm a bit confused as to how the latter is actually a band member, but I suppose that's beside the point. Angelspit changed their formula in the physical sense.

But did that change result in a new musical direction?

Well, not really. On the two remix releases between this and Hideous and Perfect were a handful of new tracks. Some were a notable departure from Angelspit's earlier work. Techno-influenced beat-driven tracks dominated, with Toxic Girl being the only one that could have found a home on any of their full-length albums to date.

And yet, despite the addition of a drummer and a guitarist, Hello My Name Is continues the electronica vibe those remix discs began. There are few moments that sound like live drumming. Likewise, the guitars are subdued for much of the album.

I'm a fan of Angelspit's work from the beginning to now, and this album definitely changed the overall feel of their music.

If you JUST want the xerox-copied, same style as Crankhouse, Hideous & Perfect, or Blood/Death/Ivory, you will be disappointed. A FEW of the tracks follow the tried-and-true Angelspit formula of stompy industrial music with male/female vox chanting poetic lyrics like some kind of hellish hip-hop of the goth scene. The differences, however, are what make this album what it is.

First off, there is a LOT more guitar on this album, courtesy of Valerie, who rocked face in The Cruxshadows. Toss in live drums from Chris Kling from Mortiis, and some of the tracks take on more of a hard-rock-industrial tone than the preceding albums. "Bulletproof" is probably the biggest departure from their signature sound to date - a good song, but old-skool Angelspit fans will wonder WTF?

Secondly, there is more SINGING instead of angry chanting. Some of it is added as a layer to the songs ("CATATONIC") and on other tracks, there is a notable lack of chanting. ("DEFIBRILLATOR")

Another review here notes many of the differences that I do, but unlike that review... I dunno. I enjoyed this album. There are a couple songs that feel truncated or pointless, but I've felt that about a few tracks on ALL of Angelspit's albums to date. (Seriously, I don't know anyone who likes the tracks "VENA CAVA", "FINK", or "A LA MODE, A LA MORTE", myself included.) Much of this album is enjoyable - I especially liked "STATIC" and "CUBICLE". Definitely worth a download if you're a fan of Angelspit, or stompy EBM in general. Just don't expect the EXACT same sound as the last albums. There's been some evolution here.

Angelpsit added new members but still keep the sound we love. They're not for everyone but they're for me. I saw many people whined about this album and Blood Death and Ivory. I want to tell you, Blood Death and Ivory was a great album too.
