on Brutal Resonance
With ‘Cinema Bizarre’, Project Rotten takes a big step from the
underground and moving towards the light of the more recognized bands
within the harsh genre. It got several things backing it up on its
By removing much of the distortion from the vocals, the voice of
Fredrik Croona strikes more pure and feels more alive and distinctive.
Giving it a true identity instead of mixing together with the soon
millions of harsh bands using the same feature. A step in the right
direction of separating themselves from the crowd.
X/209’s music is highly inspired by the Southern American harsh
scene with short bursts on the keys, leaving the sounds high pitched and
rapidly put together to form the melodies. While this works very well
and the melodies themselves are varied enough, I would love to see what
he could form if he were to let the melodies and sounds flow out into
something less fast paced. I think that would make it even more
ever-changing and dynamic.
Fredrik and X/209 are not alone on this album, no sir; they got the
fine company of Javi Ssagitt (Terrolocaust), Pre Emptive Strike and the
legend Johan Van Roy (Suicide Commando). But this is not merely a
namedrop, no, the actually bring something great to the table and “The
Hunger” which is featuring Javi is probably the best track on the album.
Breaking up the screaming vocals and adding his very great and unique
voice to the mix, leaving you amazed.
With eleven solid and high quality tracks (yeah, I’m leaving out the
not so serious bonus track), ‘Cinema Bizarre’ is the step I wanted
Project Rotten to take. If they succeed to make their sound even more
unique and really steps out from the crowd, they are surely going to
make a name for themselves.
