SIN D.N.A. are back to the clubs with a new EP!

“Iconoclast” is the name of the latest Harsh Electro record from Texas and it comes as a 7-track-version, four new SIN D.N.A. songs and 3 remixes by Kriminal Minds, God Destruction, and Disorder Faith, released on June 13th on Paragon Poison Media.

SIN DNA is Mario Carrasco and Sergio Ramirez, the project was started in 2004. The most recent show was in Mexico City with Hocico and Aesthetic Perfection on the day of the release. They have done over 18 remixes for bands like Suicide Commando, Die Sektor, Life Cried etc.

So let’s have a look at the darkest depths of the human psyche:

“Hellbound” is the opener and as such it immediately opens the gates of hell. For those of you who remember the glorious Hellraiser movies “Hellbound” will surely ring a bell: It’s the name of the second Hellraiser chapter from 1988, starring Doug Bradly as Pinhead, the Master of Torture and Pain, tearing the souls of those apart who can’t resist the small Rubik’s Cube Puzzle Box which is the key to all evil. “Hellbound” is a catchy Harsh track, inviting you to dance the hell out of you! Somewhere between Agonoize and Hocico the song is simply brilliantly implemented.

The second track, “Anima lgni” takes up the Harsh influences of the first one. “Anima Igni” (Latin for “Soul of Fire”)surprises with a sudden change from the dark shouts to a clear voice that is more common within the Electro Pop genre. Maybe a bit unusual but somehow quite pleasing.

“World Burner” offers a complete different style. Hoping in vain for more fast beats, the song is more a Break-Beat / Industrial track, mixed with the typical electronic voice and samples. Honestly it’s a little difficult for me to gain access to this track but I’m sure this one will find its lovers as well!

Track 4 is “Iconoclast”, which gave the EP its name. When I listened to it for the first time, it directly carried back my mind to the times of the awesome album “Syncope” by “Tactical Sekt”! The stomping beats, the voice ever more angry than before and the feeling of destruction and decay. For me “Iconoclast” is far beyond expectations! It made me really euphoric to hear something that is completely to my liking! Hats off!

After this, also some words on the remixes. The first one is a “Hellbound” remix done by the Mexican project KRIMINAL MINDS. And it blows your mind. Without hesitation the song crashes into your auditory canals and from there into your brain. The original is still recognizable but this mix is an Industrial explosion endlessly penetrating you to the core. Dazzling!

The “Iconoclast” mix by DISORDER FAITH from Peru changes the appearance of the original to a more “mainstream” one. The track is flowing and less aggressive. It’s not a bad remix but I guess it’s hard to top the original!

The last track on this record is the remix by GOD DESTRUCTION from Mexico City. The “Leathal Apocalypse Remix” of “World Burner” is the exact opposite of the previous one. Here I have to say that I can handle this mix better than the original version. There is something like a melody, decorated with an incredibly fast beat. The remix is not only a copy or modification of the original, it’s an entirely new created song. I really appreciate this effort!

This EP is a MUST for all Harsh fans around the world! CHECK!

There are two contradicting aspects of individualism: the promise that you can achieve anything and the blaming of the individual for not achieving it.
