Review: Nexus VI – ‘RemixLust’
At twelve years old and with three albums to their credit, Nexus VI is one of Russia’s oldest EBM bands, so it is probably about time they put out the industry standard remix album that most bands seem to justify after their first EP release!
Taking tracks from their previous two albums ‘Electrolust’ (2008) and ‘Apocalypse‘ (2010) the band have offered up their originals to be ruthlessly reconstructed into… well, mainly EBM.
So the remixes tend to lean more towards appeasing the underground DJs and their dance floor faithful rather than doing anything more innovative and exciting. But never underestimate the exposure a good remix can generate for a band, especially when that band has an new album on the horizon.
There are some standout moments though such as Sleetgrout‘s take on ‘Biomechanical’, ‘Igel’ featuring Vladimir Harkonnen and Electro Synthetic Rebellion’s version of ‘High Voltage’ all have that suitably bombastic club presence, while the sublime ‘Time To Leave’ featuring Chaos-Module sounds like an outtake from The Matrix with all it’s glitchy goodness.
The production isn’t the best, but it is perfectly listenable, even if the vocals in the first couple of songs suffer from the overuse of effects on them. But as an introduction to a band this isn’t too bad. It will be interesting to see how the band’s next album sounds in comparison.
