Editorial Reviews

Already an institution in their scene, the Munich-based Eisbrecher has only known one direction: Steadily climbing up. After several sold-out and nearly sold-out concerts, great shows at several festivals such as Novarock, WGT, Amphi, Zita Rock, Castle Rock, Wacken Rocks, Unheilig & Friends and many more the band has now declared war on the Eiszeit. Singer Alexx Wesselsky made it clear that they are going deep with the new album: We want to tell people what moves us, without compromising and we are convinced that there are more people out there who share our vision and are willing to get on board our steal ship, to join us on our mutual I, also known as US! After a hard and nerve wracking production phase, during which producer and guitarist Noel Pix and Alexx re-invented the typical Eisbrecher sound, the band is ready to show the world what Eisbrecher can do to the Eiszeit. We are living in a world which is getting colder by the day in spite of global warming and the polar caps melting away! says frontman Alexx People are getting colder. Our heart is a fridge and our existence is a cold exhalation. Its time to launch the Eisbrecher

I got this for a gift for my brother, who's a huge FLA fan. He has almost every album release by the band and I've heard a little of this release and it's pretty good if you like guitar-heavy industrial music.

Can't believe I'm hearing the single for a new album from FLA, taking into account that they released the last one about 4 years ago, with a remixed set (like a second version for Artificial Soldier) 3 years ago.
Now to the point:

1- Shifting through the lens: Starts with a electronica styled intro (very Flavour of the Weak) and then adds up some drums and blips and things to arrive into a sonic wall so clear and pure you'll want to tell someone go listen to it with you. The vocals are going TNI styled but they sounded more perfect, the texture is machine 2010, metalized but as clear as one can expect from a Terminator v.2010. The pauses are great, leaving room for the ear to delight inside a soft but fluid melody. Bridging to the choruses, very FLAish style, Bill sterylizing something and singing just great. The final is precise.

2- Angriff: A soft melody starts with some laser swords enhancing the soundscape. The main melody sounds like a very "worked upon guitar", anyway great, looks like the songs is going to be something like Infra Red Combat, but its getting filled with brass and then a short silence and WOW, an electric guitar but nothing like Millenium (great album anyway), but more like Hard Wired guitars, punchy but softer and incredible well mixed with the surrounding sounds. If you heard Dissension from Artificial Soldier, these guitars are BETTER MIXED YET. Then the angry Lyrics that el Leebo usually spits out in these cases. The voice is articulated like some whispered songs from the Everything Must Perish days, but the prechorus really kills you. The vocoded voice gets through your mind like they were orders, scrambled with a guitar doing the pattern of the voice. Just for that this song is a new step ahead for FLA.

As a huge fan of industrial music, I have to say that Front Line Assembly is THE best industrial band out there. This EP has a FLA sound that I absolutely crave and MUST have: crunchy and complex, intellectual and thoughtful, yet deft and primal in execution. The new line up for the band definitely changed their sound, greatly, for the better. I look forward to getting my hands on the new upcoming disc, Improvised.Electronic.Device.

It hasn't been since 1997's "Columbian Necktie" that a Front Line Assembly single could send as literal and as bold a jolt of industrial excitement into this soul of mine. Those sturdy textures and layers are back! The formidable beats and rendered vocals are fantastic. 2003's "Maniacal" was the comeback that all of us waited for...um I think it was a longer time coming!
The bonus tracks are instant favorites. We get two from the electronic camp the Leeb is famous for: The electro-guitar aggressive (and beautifully melodic!!) "Angriff" will be an instant favorite for those fans of "Millennium" and "Hard-Wired" but the impressive bliss of "Endless Void", the final track here, is just outstanding. A soundtrack to a science fiction ambient storm gone awry. Excellent! The album is sure to not disappoint!

This is an excellent single off the forthcoming album Improvised Electronic Device. I hope that Shifting Through the Lens is an indication of how the overall sound of the new album will be. It reminds me of the music in the Wipeout video game on the original Sony Playstation., it's very catchy. Angriff also is killer, kind of reminds me of Rammstein. Endless void is a very hard to describe instrumental, think along the lines of something Trent Reznor would do. But I like it a lot too!
