Deus.exe - Transhuman (2008) [+HQ]
The band name may cause the reader / listener to hearken back memories of the fantastic PC game "Deus Ex" from 2000 - even the visual style is similar to the game's sequel "Invisible Wars". DEUS.EXE, however, is a young band from Cologne that, faithful to its name, is dedicated to Industrial metal. Clearly Fear Factory is a large influence here. The closing track from "Transhuman", "Ctrl_Alt_Del_Kill" could have well been taken from "Obsolete". However, "Transhuman" comes across as fresher and more modern, and last but not least more mature than the latest output of the LA Cyber Metalers. The focal point of "Transhuman" is not so much on the rhythmic level, it's more on the driving, atmospheric passages. The basic sound is, nevertheless, based on Death metal – and venturing every now and again into, if you could excuse the term, Metalcore terrain. What is striking is that the production is well suited to the music: Dark, sometimes dirty, yet the songs' themes are optimally presented. It just goes to show that you don't need a huge budget to sound respectable. Even being "only" a self-produced album, the high class of the band must be recognised – hence the almost untypical score for an underground band.
