|Capital Punishment Remix |Cop International, 2006, [digital EP]|
1. Loaded (Bitstream Dream Remix), 2. Anger Management (FV Remix), 3. Capital Punishment (Chris Peterson Rmx)
This mini digital EP is available on iTunes and contains two songs from their latest album “Capital Punishment” (2003) and one from the previous album “Loaded” (1997).
The first song “Loaded” is remixed by Rom Di Prisco, a successful producer of several soundtracks for video games, movies and TV series and as well as the remixer of different bands music like Skinny Puppy or Fear Factory. Rom released a great remix, enhancing the electronic sound and creating the perfect version of this beautiful song.
“Anger Management” is remixed by the German aggro-tech band Funker Vogt. I’m not a big fan of Funker Vogt because I consider their albums flat and monotonous and so they don't betray my opinion even this time, the changes don’t move away too much from the original song, presenting a "without praise or blame" remix.
The last track “Capital Punishment” is dismantled by Chris Peterson (member of FLA, Decree and Unit:187 producer). The upshot is a more aggressive, harsh and distorted version, in which the voice is fragmented and reassembled. The song is deprived of the clean synth sound and submerged by drums and atmospheres, recalling the apocalyptic song “Prophecy” from FLA “Implode” album.
It’s a very good remix EP however the only regret I have is the skimpy tracklist, so if you want to enjoy more songs you'll need to wait for the newest album. (Marco Gariboldi)
