Лично для меня - лучшее, что выходило в электронной музыке в 2009-м. Очаровательные - по-другому и не скажешь - и иногда наивно-тревожные мелодии, чистое, "хрустальное" звучание и неповторимый вокал участника культовых DIORAMA Феликса Марка - прекрасная работа, к которой хочется возвращаться снова и снова
'Continuing with Metropolis Records' new releases set for July 7th is the trippy sagacious act Frozen Plasma. Formed in 2005 by NamNamBulu (a name I had to double check, I am certainly not free of critics for stage names. ), Vassi Vallis, and former Diorama keyboardist Felix Marc, the act has only recently launched out with their lofty and enigmatic brand of beautiful Darkwave dance riffs. The current incarnation steps up featuring the duo for Felix and Vassi. While successful tour mates in their prior projects with bands like Combichrist and VNV Nation, the current incarnation of Frozen Plasma has largely garnered its name through hefty dance club play the world over. Their first single “Warmonger” is still a club staple in Europe.
The sophomore release MOMENTUM has already hit the U.K. charts and club scene touching down with freight train force. I predict the act being a major smash in the U.S. club scene. The album indeed is similar in vein to VNV Nation, Cesium_137, and Funker Vogt in that they use political commentary, tinny synth and sweeping drums to move and provoke. The album opens with the vast and heavenly riffs of “The End - Deliverance” beckoning to the floor. The already pulse pounding club hit “Tanz Die Revolution” (The Dance Revolution) heats up the album with thumping bass backbeats, gritty distortion, and beautiful vocals. The album closes out with the frenetic “Speed of Life” (Extended Mix) and burns up to the finale of the abruptly titled “Close”.
The album itself is indeed moving, provocative, and ethereal. I continue to love and adore intelligent dark rock acts that feature expertly written shadowy riffs and combine them with moving lyrics that hypnotize and beckon. This album indeed kept me with rapt attention. I can foresee Vampire Clubs from NYC to LA picking this album up for floor stomping, blood drenched, beauty and ambiance as the lace clad lovers of darkness sip on pewter goblets while stepping and stomping to the fantastic tripps this act offers. MOMENTUM cements Frozen Plasma as a recent and fixture act in the dark rock music scene.'
