Editorial Reviews

Fists raised in the air. Bodies, heavily perspiring, crush against each other and threaten to burst through steel barricades. Security forces gaze forward with a mix of aggression, tension and fear. Monstrous decibels pound each and every human in the chest, relentless, overpowering, captivating. Is this some club consumed by fiercely kvlt dystopian noise? A festival tent, throbbing with oppressively jagged electronic grooves? Are there headbangers hoisting cups of beer, or Millennials enthralled in rapturous joy?

It's none of it, yet all of it. It's Skrillex meets Slayer. It's a singular entity. It's ZARDONIC.

Zardonic is as much a band as it is a concept, an idea, a perfect flashpoint and balance between divergent styles joined together through a prism of aggression, atmosphere and absolute immersion. Zardonic is a symbol, an icon, a mask; increasingly as ubiquitous in the international hard EDM and heavy metal underground as the mask worn by Deadmau5. Zardonic is also a person. Venezuelan born Federico Augusto Ágreda Álvarez is a multi-instrumentalist, DJ, composer and mixer, whose fingerprints dirtied remixes from Australian speedcore merchants The Berzerker, long-running Norwegian black metal titans Gorgoroth and massive standard bearers Nine Inch Nails.

Says Agreda: Zardonic isn't just about noise; it's very musical. The notes, melodies, progressions it's all very metal. It's rich in a way that's hard to achieve with a lot of heavy EDM music. says That's what makes it exciting for me. There s noise in there, sure, but more in the spirit of the way Trent Reznor is able to build songs from the noise.

Ágreda's alter ego is the penultimate Frankenstein monster, built from body parts like the industrialized angst of the legendary Ministry, the savage contrarianism of German digital hardcore rabble-rousers Atari Teenage Riot, and the attitude of screamo-singer-turned-cultural-flashpoint, Skrillex. But never before has a marriage of metal, hard EDM and chaos captured the balance of Zardonic's forthcoming eOne Music debut.

Fans familiar with Zardonic's work via his appearance on releases issued by DJ Dieselboy's SubHuman: Human Imprint and Skrillex's OWSLA label will recognize the signature blueprint within the new material. But Zardonic's definitive work expands into a heady mind trip through extreme metal inspired electronic music, inclusive of drum n' bass, with the same signature sound warped through various tempos. Dubstep isn't in the recipe, but fierce vocals, guitars, break-beats, hardcore and Glitch burn brightly.

Agreda continues: Most of the club DJs and electronic music producers that tried to put some metal elements into their music, it was pretty much just drum and bass tracks or electro tracks with a couple of samples here and there, chopped in. It wasn't like they were composing actual metal songs. Ministry were pioneers, but that was still metal, that wasn't club music. It was the same thing with Atari Teenage Riot. I love both of those bands. What I'm trying to do is take Zardonic even further than before."

The eOne Music debut of Zardonic accomplishes that very goal, with confident force.

I quit my job, left my girlfriend, abandoned my family, I only make sure I can power my laptop/phone so I can keep listening to this album. I don't even need food anymore.

In all seriousness:

My favorite album so far this year by a mile and probably my favorite of all time. Bought the physical CD from here and have not stopped listening to it since it came in the mail. Zardonic has always been great at what he does but this is a whole other level of electronic and metal that I've never heard before. Not a moment of the album (including the instrumentals and remixes by other musicians on the 2nd CD) doesn't have constant power and energy surging through it. No tracks sound alike, none of them are boring, and I never skip past a song when I have the album playing. I completely love every single track. BUY THIS ALBUM. Buy it twice, buy it as many times as you can afford it. The music is well worth every penny I paid and the man behind the music is an awesome guy. The money isn't supporting some egotistical ass who happens to make decent music. It's supporting a great man who's a master of his craft and loves his fans as much as they love him.

I could go on and on about how much I love this album. I honestly have nothing negative to say about the album in terms of writing, album cover aesthetics, or the studio mixing. Zardonic put his heart and soul into this album and it shows every second.

Zardonic fuses metal and dnb into an experience more intense and driving than any artist I've heard lately. I cannot recommend this album enough for fans of both metal and EDM.

I don't purchase music often, but this one is worth it. For less than fifteen bucks, you keep an independent artist employed and producing more great music. Buy it!

Didn't know who this guy was until I heard his remix of New Elysium by Celldweller. Zardonic has talent. My favorite artist since I discovered who Metallica was at age 8.

I can't really find words to categorize his style and DnB for those who don't know it. I guess think of a child produced by thrash metal and techno. It's pretty sick.

When I'm playing shoot em ups (FPS/RTS) I like hard hitting music with solid bass and a pace that can sustain me in a firefight. Zardonic delivers tasty riffs and great base lines mixed with high energy electrorock, my kill rates have never been better.
