CD Title: NFY
Genre: Industrial/ Electro
Reviewer: Phill Bruce
Uberbyte have led the way for the standard of music of the alternative scene. They provide fiery set fillers that keep the dance floor packed to the max with revelers enjoying the body beat kicking tracks. As as DJ, I'm pleased to say we look for these sorts of tracks to keep the punters happy. You will sometimes find one true floor filler on an album, but to find two on one album is practically unheard of - yet Uberbyte have done this. Let's have a closer look.
To start you are you are hit with two rage filled epic battle tracks, "Hell Alamien," and "Spion Kop." These songs feel like they could have come from the pen of a battle chronicler, the pen being the sweet pounding beats, and Richard's vocals being being the storyteller's tale.
Then you are met by a DJ's dream: "Hardcore Industrial." This track is a definite floor filler and a delight to spin. You want to imagine yourself being in a club with your mates, you hear the start of these familiar beats you love so much, you all scream and rush to go dance! This is one of those songs that will get you wiggling.
Then we have a track that brought a smile to my face: "MOwr FOcking COwbell." Though this track may not be a floor filler it's a definite track that will make you giggle.
"Gott Mitt Oontz" has elements of early German electronica - like Dance Or Die. The vocals fit perfectly to the feel of it.
"We Are The Dead" is like a hate filled anthem for all those gore hoarding industrial people and it's one they will love.
"(Fuck Me) Like You Don't" has hints of the J-Pop scene. The catchy female vocals make this a track that will be permanently on your playlist and will never leave it.
"Volte Face" has hints of Dance Or Die vocals and also hints of early nineties hardcore rave material. These are blended perfectly make quite the industrial anthem.
"Not Here" would perfectly fit an early nineties video game sound track. Elements of this one summon up memories of games like Street Fighter.
"Evil Trance" as it says, its like the devil got his hands on a trance tracks and remixed it in his own sadistic way.
"Money Shot" is another one of those DJ's dream tracks and definite floor filler. You feel wanting to move your body, and some time later you'll realize you've been dancing around your living room.
All in all, NFY is, in my mind, Uberbyte's finest work so far, and as a fan of alternative, it's perfect to fit into my music collection, and one I will be playing non stop. As a DJ too, this album is a dream, providing two definite set list tracks. So I would say, to all industrial fans and DJs: You must buy this album. 8/10
