Greece's Pornostroika Dadaifa have returned with a new recording which shows the music going for a mixture of industrial, cyberpunk, hardcore and metal and this is a review of their self released 2021 album "ΕΞΟΥΣΙΑΖΟΜΕΝΟΙ ΑΠΟ ΤΟΝ ΦΟΒΟ".
Spoken word parts and movie samples start off the album before going into a harder musical direction. Elements of industrial can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the songs also add in a great amount of programmed beats and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
At times the music also captures the raw energy of punk while synths are also added on some of the tracks. All of the songs also sound very different from each other along with the guitar riffs also adding in the heaviness of hardcore and metal when they are utilized as well as the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style.
A later track also shows an influence of reggae and dub and when the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard. There is also some session work from members of Pre-Emptive Strike, Hail Spirit Noir, Degenerated Sequences, and Kai Phopyx as well as the closing track also adding in some black metal vocals. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in Greek and cover Dadaism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pornostroika Dadaifi and if you are a fan of industrial, cyberpunk, metal and hardcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "ΔIEΘΝΗΣ ΕΠΑΝΕΚΤΕΛΕΣΗ. Μ. ΜΠΡΕΧΤ" "ΕΜΕΙΣ(ΣΥΜΜΕΤΕΧΕΙ Ο PHOPYX). ΒΑΣΙΣΜΕΝΟ ΣΤΟ ΟΜΩΝΥΜΟ ΕΡΓΟ ΤΟΥ ΖΑΜΙΑΤΙΝ" and "ΣΥΡΙΖΟΠΑΣΟΚΙΑ ΒΡΩΜΟΙ ΕΠΑΝΕΚΤΕΛΕΣΗ". 8 out of 10.
