The last 15 years have permited us to end up with the conclusion that the metal music scene, does not seem to be having any complexes concerning the integration of other music influenses,such as : jazz,oriental music,industial rock,electro ambiences and opera. These music styles are now part of the scene. Certain people were afraid of it being a kind of scandal when iron maiden was using synthesizer effects on their guitars,or queensryche,samples during live concerts... these times are far behind. In this race to 'Fusion', Frenizia attacks in a sort of way leaving behind the longhaired metalhead mentality associating Metal to techno music.I'm not talking here about rythmics that Oomph,Ramstein or Clawfinger has, but about totaly crazy rythmics such as hardcore techno or trance. It is obvious that extreme metal scenes and electronic ones, are a bit the same in our days. Frenizia is a band from Cyprus and leaves these kind of hesitations in the closet. This solo project proposes two tracks available by download. The first track is the one worthy of the first mouse-click:'Frenizia' will not only please people that get together in fields and listen to hardcore electro stuff but also fans of dark-metal,with growls making one with drum machine assaults and hypnotic synthesizers moods. The second track 'Eternal Question' is composed in a more classic way but never the less has a lot of ambience changes in it's 4 minute duration. Recorded in a home studio this first delivery proposes a production which is more than honnest,even if the drum machine parts sometimes lack of fineness. The whole recipe is to be refined but these two tracks have a lot to promise. You should lend an ear on these two tracks and keep a sharp eye on Frenizia's' future moves: there is something new goin on in Cyprus !!! :) Rating 9/10 Patrick Damn, these guys are just all over the board. From Electronica, to metal, to death metal, to industrial to more that I probably don't know the category of! Every song sounds completely different and not like the other. They are classifying themselves as digital metal, which I very much agree with. One song sounds like death metal with the digital sounds except for the vocals. Some vocals sounds like James Hetfield, after the black album. Guitars sound like Swedish metal sound or power metal. They all seem to have a touch of 90's dance music mixed in, like from Ah-Ha, Depeche Mode, etc. Very different, very all over the place. Jensmetal.
