ELM released a teaser for his upcoming new album Extreme Unspoken Tension. A 5 tracks EP titled Death Of The North which offers us even more and brand new and ruthless solid electronic ELM EBM.

Those who are familiar with ELM’s earlier work will not be surprised of, their yet again, very strong sound. Inspired by many old school EBM legends, this gentleman is inexhaustible. Nitzer Ebb and DAF regularly influences resound when you let ELM's music vibrate deep into your veins. Strong rhythms, aggressive basses and a powerful voice.

On this EP we are presented with three different versions of the title track ‘Death Of The North’ ; a 7 inch version, a single edit and the ultimate truth mix version. One by one extremely sturdy and peppered with great electronics that take them each to another level. The latest version is fed with some mysterious synths and samples, without losing power. Yes, ELM succeeds in making us look forward to that upcoming full album!

Also on the menu there's the song ‘Thoughtcrime (Mean Mugger Mix)’. Same ingredients, and again with a great aggressive bass. As a bonus there is ‘Thin Line’. An infectious song that tends to sound a bit more like dark-wave. A bit more moderate in terms of brutality, but this gem also elicits some hip wiggling while listening.

Like said before, with this download EP, ELM makes us more than curious about their likely EBM masterpiece coming up soon!

ELM laat een voorsmaakje los van het op til zijnde nieuwe album Extreme Unspoken Tension; de 5 tracks bevattende EP Death Of The North. ELM kondigt daarmee nog meer gloednieuwe en meedogenloos stevige electronische EBM aan.

Wie de eerdere muziek van ELM kent zal niet verbaasd zijn dat het weer heel stevig klinkt. Geïnspireerd op de old school EBM gaat het heerschap onuitputtelijk zijn gang. De betere en oudere Nitzer Ebb en DAF klinken regelmatig door als je ELM’s muziek tot diep in je aderen laat doortrillen. Stevige ritmes, agressieve bassen en een krachtige stem.

Death Of The North krijgen we in drie verschillende bereidingen voorgeschoteld. De 7 inch versie, de single edit en de ultimate truth-mix. En die zijn allen één voor één uitermate stevig en doorspekt met geweldige electronica die ze net weer een brug verder brengt. De laatste versie is gespijsd met wat mysterieuze synths en wat samples, die op geen enkele wijze afbreuk doen aan het feit dat het heel erg solide blijft doordrammen. In alle geval slaagt ELM er in om ons te laten uitzien naar dat full album.

Verder op het menu de song Thoughtcrime (mean mugger mix). Dezelfde ingrediënten, met een geweldig agressieve bass. Als extraatje is er Thin Line. Een aanstekelijke song die wat meer darkwave klinkt. Wat gematigder qua brutaliteit, maar toch ontlokt ook dit pareltje enig heupgewieg bij het beluisteren.

ELM maakt ons met deze download-EP méér dan nieuwsgierig naar een naar alle waarschijnlijkheid nieuw EBM-meesterwerk dat er staat aan te komen.
