"Antagonist" (Self-released; 2011)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

Cyber metal seems to be a new, emerging type of metal. Cyber sounds, which include heavy distorted guitars along with electronic sounds, but more futuristic. Either way it sounds awesome! A lot of Neurotech's music sounds dense but that isn't the top layer, that's the base. Harmonies and choruses are added on top and vocals that are scratched along the top so you have a bunch of layers that balance out to create some dance/metal/industrial music that is quite infectious.

This is Neurotech's debut disc, they had an EP titled "Transhuman" and they decided that a full length disc was needed to gather the masses of cyber metal. You can listen to this disc and note that it sounds like dance music but with heavy guitars and it has a metal vibe and then you add musical choruses, well, it's hard to define but not hard to absorb at all. You can head bang all day long to this disc. At the time of this review, it's currently a free download, and I highly recommend you do so.

Neurotech are from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Wulf writes all of the lyrics and music.

Neurotech: Wulf - Vox/Guitars/Synths/Drum Prog, Naur - Live Bass, Sophis - Live Guitars, Gorr - Live Drums.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
