:Retrowerks: Atomzero – Symbiosis
Review by Tyler Courville
It is no secret that I have a bit of a soft spot for the synthier side of EBM. Sure I love myself some Uberbyte and Agonoize, but sometimes it is refreshing to listen to something a bit calmer and a bit less screamy. Atomzero’s album Symbiosis is a wonderful and refreshing example of this.
This album has many warm sounds and deep beats that bring And One and Necessary Response to mind. There is emotion to the music. It isn’t just dirty lyrics thrown at a hard beating oontz song. Symbiosis brings back some of that soft, but deep that a lot of groups I have been listening to lately seem to have lost.
“Dissent” is my favorite from the album for sure. The song has a very KMFDM mixed with Mortiis feel. Light vocals with a very in your face melody. If you enjoy the dark, synthpop-ish, side of the EBM/industrial world, you definitely won’t be disappointed. I always love hearing new music and this album should definitely make any music lover’s wish list.
