It seems that this trio come complete with "an army of synthesizers" and there's a dismal thought, but they do have a pedigree which had me expectant. Corey Gunderson (Razor Skyline/13th Sky/Soil & Eclipse/Deathline International) and Johna Ohtagaki (13th Sky/The Thaw) roped in Onyx (Razor Skyline) and together they bring out a 3 track CD which talks tough in the press release and then turns out to be utterly lightweight electro.
Although dour to begin with, the female vocals during '16ft Of Broken Glass' have class, the beat is crisp and even, the synths shifting the melody in place of bass, and as the voice grows in clarity to become quite stately there's promise here, but it has a chance to explode and they never take it, preferring to be pretty mild.
'The Brink' shows that the male voice is very poor in comparison and must never be used again, and the poppy electro just lumbers forward. 'The Bitter Fruit' is the totally poppy extreme with a good, obvious chorus, cute synth stabs, lovely vocals but ultimately some mildew in their circuits, because compared to this 2 Unlimited are early Ministry.
