The Los Angeles based Van Richter label has been known for releasing aggro-electronic music for years, but its roster also includes guitar driven bands such as the cold industrial of Testify and Sielwolf as well as Goth-electronica in the order of The Fair Sex and Girls Under Glass.

Hellfire brings a retrospective compilation of Van Richter bands in a variety of well known and unreleased songs. It begins with Testify's short intro titled “Future Lust” followed by “Seed of Wrath (Silence As A Weapon)” mixed by Die Warzau. However, it's kept in dance/trance beat driven moods while the original track was based on aggressive guitar riffs. There is also “Every Day Is Halloween” (An early Ministry song) remixed by Underwater Pilots.

The album provides both dance like and atmospheric tracks (Underwater Pilots “I Prepare”, “Flood”, The Fair Sex “Woe”) and is probably a great thread for fans of aggro-industrial, EBM, Synthpop and Goth. Party goers would certainly enjoy listening to this compilation during upcoming Halloween events, but I would not so much recommended this one for the Rivetheads who prefer heavy guitar riffs over predominant electronica.

We've almost erased all life around us for just a couple of hundred years of mining, slavery and greed, and nothing more. The world deserved better than what we've done to it. If we could become extinct before we destroy everything, maybe a newer, better species would evolve to take our place with a better sense of equilibrium with the world around it. Adam Pask (2006)
