After the release of the debut CD 'Menschenfeind' earlier this year, Necrotek returns with the 'None More Black EP' - delivering two nihilistic ebm club anthems and two tracks of old-school inspired industrial. The title track is a blistering rhythmic assault, with abrasive vocals expressing a venomous view of the state of existence. Sung in both German and English, "Alles Ist Nacht" continues this theme with a mutant ebm club track featuring razor-edged synths, a massive beat, and tripped-out oscillating electronics. "Shadow Phase" is perhaps the darkest track on the EP, inspired by the old-school industrial sounds of Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy, and conveying menacing atmospheres along with a bleak, nihilistic fatalism. The final track "Decline and Fall" is an instrumental piece inspired by the early Wax Trax sound of Ministry and The Revolting Cocks. Reminiscent of a lost b-side from that era, this track is filled with warped bass, fractured percussion and samples from old science fiction and horror films, news broadcasts, and early tape cut-up experiments - making yet another comment on the decline of civilization and the fall of humanity (though not without a humorous sense).
