a violent emotion

Does hard Electro always have to follow along the same paths? No way! On their second album, Aesthetic Perfection effectively prove the contrary. “A Violent Emotion” is an aggressive floor shaker with searing shouts, deep bass beats and an absolutely infernal drive… but it is also so much more. Daniel Graves goes far beyond standard 4-to-the-floor-stompers and ever-similar Trance-licks, knowing full well that, just like any other kind of music, a hard inferno will profit from intelligent song writing, versatile sound design and a combination of different influences and that aggressive parts will hit you even more effectively when contrasted with catchy melodies. Hard club smashers meet EBM-sequencers, Synth Pop influences, heavy shuffling stompers and Electropunk. Graves is also not only a master at relentlessly aggressive shouts but has got a pretty impressive singing voice as well. He, thus, cunningly integrates melodic vocals parts into his sonic inferno, thus creating a sense of tension that few others in hard Electro can match - like the ominous calm before a devastating storm. It is rather clear that the lyrics on “A Violent Emotion” will not invoke any infantile “I am so evil!”-clichés, either, rather aiming at the personal realm … hitting it where it really hurts. The album contains the club hit “Pale” (from “Awake the Machines Vol. 6”) and was co-produced and mastered by Krischan J.E. Wesenberg (Rotersand.) This is intelligent hard stuff… violent AND emotional!
