Releasedate: December 7th, 2012.

You can feel it right from the start. We’re taking off for a luxurious flight to Synthpop/EBM heaven. 

“Cold Front”, the fierce and fiery “Recoding _”-kickoff, promises sixty beat infested minutes of pure Fun & Future. “Burning Chrome” continues in strict EBM-tempo, marching through cyber reality with the greatest of ease. Time for the BIG guns! “Pulsar” is probably the best song on “Recoding –“: Halo effect in KILLER mode, DARK STARS indeed. An exquisite intro (Stalker?), relentless beats converging with delightful “eighties” vocals, this song really has it all. “Fiction” doesn’t’, I’m sorry guys. Too much Crüxshadows. Halo Effect seems at its best with mid-tempo vocals. Should I specifically mention some other songs? Maybe one, “Total Recall”, another great track displaying the bright and full potential of Halo Effect.

In all, there are 14 tracks to be discovered and enjoyed on “Recoding _”, a potent mix of Synthpop, EBM and Futurepop. The third Halo Effect album deserves the full attention of people in the market for fine craftsmanship, a high degree of refinement and catchy melodies. “Recoding _” was excellently produced by Mika Rossi (AUTODAFEH) and preceded by “New Romantic Industry” (2008) and “The Fourth Zone” (2010). Mika also delivers a vocal contribution on “New Body Machine”.

EK Product is breaking the silence once more … and release n° 23 is an (almost) absolute gem! John Andrew Peverieri, Alessandro Polinori, Federico Rosi en Marco Cattani: cheers and BIG UP!

BUY OR DIE!

Releasedatum: 7 december 2012.

De eerste beats doen majestueus hun intrede en we lijken meteen vertrokken voor een luxueus ritje richting EBM/Synthpop-heaven. “Cold Front”, het warme begin van “Recoding _” kondigt met verve een zestigtal minuten Fun & Future aan. “Burning Chrome”, met onvervalste EBM-intro, houdt moeiteloos het strakke ritme aan en het is goed toeven in de cyberrealiteit van Halo Effect.

Met “Pulsar” wordt het alleen maar leuker: een dijk van een song met een heerlijke intro (Stalker?), loodzware beats en zalige “eighties” vocals … Halo Effect op zijn allerstrakst! “Pulsar” is hoogstwaarschijnlijk de donkerste STER van Halo Effect, schitterend schijnend aan hun zelfgecreëerde firmament … en het contrast met de volgende song, “Fiction”, is dan ook groot. Het te hoge “Crüxshadows”-gehalte komt “Fiction” niet ten goede. Halo Effect lijkt op zijn best als ze vocaal wat gas terugnemen. Over The Crüxshadows verder overigens geen onvertogen woord: ik heb vorig jaar ongelooflijk genoten van hun wervelende show in Waregem en “Quicksilver”was één van mijn favoriete songs van 2012.

Goed … Er staan dus 14 songs op “Recoding _”, een potente mix van Synthpop, EBM en Futurepop. Het derde album van Halo Effect is een absolute aanrader voor liefhebbers van auditief detail en gepolijste tracks met hoge afwerkingsgraad en aanstekelijke melodieën. De productie, getekend Mika Rossi (AUTODAFEH), is ULTRAVET! Mika levert een puntgave sound en neemt verder nog de vocale honneurs waar in “New Body Machine”. De voorgangers van “Recoding _”, “New Romantic Industry” en “The Fourth Zone”, dateren van 2008 en 2010.

Zijn er nog specifieke songs te vermelden? Misschien nog eentje: “Total Recall”, een sublieme track die het rijke potentieel van het Italiaanse Halo Effect ten volle etaleert. 

EK Product breekt eens te meer de stilte en hun 23ste release is opnieuw een (bijna) absoluut juweeltje! John Andrew Peverieri, Alessandro Polinori, Federico Rosi en Marco Cattani: cheers en BIG UP!

En beste lezer: nu als de bliksem naar de (virtuele) platensmurf!
