Dr. Melancholia
The Source (2009)
Thousands of years separate us and still we face the same internal demons. We're not so different after all. SkumF***erz could be a metaphor for doing the things you need to do even when others around us don't agree with that stand. A tough son of a bitch who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty. Marazene (2006)

Razed in Black [reviews]
Sacrificed |Cleopatra, 1999|

Whipped, Caught, Master, I Worship You, Snooze, Nightmare, Guilty, Lust, Damage Inc., Better Off, I've Suffered Long Enough, Solution, Never Meant, Are You There?

It happens to Razed in Black to record their own music between covering and remixing other bands stuff too. RiB is a creative one man project but all he can show it's about how to use sampling, voices and guitar patterns known well from NIN album Pretty Hate Machine. 'Sacrificed' contains such a variety of adopted ideas. There also very good songs like I Worship You, Nightmare i Better Off. Other than that it would be cool if RiB get rid of such patters and focus on its own original music. There are at least three songs which can stand about the RiB originality: Whipped, Guilty and intriguing Are You There.
PS. Any idea what goes on in Snooze?? (NINa)

Shrieks, Laments And Anguished Cries |Cleopatra, 1996|

Sintro, Cyberium (On Speed), Black, Control, N.D.Nyl, Just Let It Go, Preacher, Pursuit, Future Unknown, What's Fair?, Power, Forlorn, Cyberium (Endurance Mix)

It is another RiB album worth of memory. Recommended for most of older NIN vibe fans what's more it's an one man project. Romell Regulacion leads the band and knows exactly what take from Reznor's ideas. Play Cyberium (On Speed) or Just Let It Go then you will know what I mean. I wasn't able to choose any kicking ass song from the tracklist but I have to note the band has good patterns to repeat. (NINa)

Unearthed |Cleopatra, 1999|

Master, Sintro, Cyberium, Black, Control, N.D.Nyl, Just Let It Go, Preacher, Future Unknown, Overflow, Forlorn (Forsaken), What's Fair? (Frustration), Power (Velocity Edit)

There are the same songs which appear on Shrieks... album plus Overflow song and a few remixes. That's a pity RiB original formed on Hawaii hasn't made so far any composition using Hawaiian guitars (if other bands can add aborigine, Indian or Arabic sounds even why not to take a risk...?) Maybe one well arranged song could sound better than the whole record? (NINa)

Damaged |Cleopatra, 2003|

Disc 1: Blush, Share This Poison, There Goes My Head, I'll Damage You, Leave It All Behind, Am I 2 Blame?, Visions, Come Back To Me, Misunderstood, Why?, Nevermeant V2

Disc 2: Blush V2, LIAB (Future Retro Mix), I'll Damage You (Eve Of Destiny Mix), Visions (Assemblage 23 Mix), Am I 2 Blame? (Soil And Eclipse Mix), Visions Of Our Past (Break Anthem Mix), Blush (NeikkaRPM Mix), Visions (Reprise)

Double CD release when the second CD contains remixes of the first one. Besides? It's a kicking ass release, the best in Razed in Black career. Personally I'm knocked out with I'll Damage You for its dynamics, but there are more way cool songs like There Goes My Head, Blush, Am I 2 Blame? and Why? Maybe someone would say there were many danceable rhythms but try to see nice guitar riffs too ;) The best record for the parties. The second CD contains remixes made by, for instance, Eve of Destiny, Assemblage 23 or NeikkiRPM. (NINa)
