Disease (Archetype Multimedia)
by DJ Carrion
Disease is a club-driven album. The songs range between 120-140 beats per minute (BPM), the music is grittier than the previous cleaner-sounding releases, and a more vibrant blend of electronica, trance, and melody is offered.
One of the best traits of Regenerator is the constant vocal battle between Wrex and Patrice. With the growls of Wrex to the breathy siren calls of Patrice, together they energize the music giving it a full body. The content of the album deals with a lot of the crisises going on in the world today, as the U.S.-only track “Nothing” elaborates in detail. If you get your hands on the European version, you’ll be treated to the exclusive track, “End of File,” which has been described as a nod to their hyperium years. Strangely, one of the standout tracks is a cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s classic “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” which they transform into a dark hybrid with an electronic edge.
