Content: The previous work I heard of Larva never totally
convinced me. The dark-electronics of this Spanish formation were
missing some substance and especially some cohesion. After an album
released on Danse Macabre they got back to Advoxya Records releasing
their 4th official album to date.
This new work remains a pure dark-electro composition, which simply can
be defined as ‘hell-electro’. The inspiration clearly comes from a band
like Suicide Commando. The originality inside Larva is far to find, but
when a band appears to be an efficient emulator of a leading name of the
scene I think no one will start to complain. And that’s precisely what
this album is all about. From start to finish you easily can recognize
the Suicide Commando-input which appears in the dark sequences and icy
melodies. Both debut songs are captivating and promising.
Some calmer pieces are awakening spirits of the late 90s electro
generation, but here again Larva is a quite efficient copier. The 2nd
part of the album is a tiny less interesting as the songs now become
quieter and more into haunting atmospheres. It doesn’t take away that
some of the songs are well-elaborated. The final chapter of the album
brings us back to the main strength of this release, which is a powerful
and danceable dark-electro style. Larva here again features a pure
devilish and total hell-electro style reaching a climax on “Something To
Conclusion: This album makes me belief Larva is on the good path
to become a real noticeable dark-electro act. With some extra
improvement in the global production this band will be able to take you
Best songs: “Something To Hate”, “You Are Alone”, “Destructive Device”, “Reflections In A Mirror”.
