Dont worry, you neednt be a classical philologist to be swept away by 'Hexakosioihexekontahexa', the newest output from the Berlin Bad Boys.
With their new double album, the trio is elevating their self-minted sub genre of 'Aggro-Electro' into altogether new dimensions.
On the 22 new tracks that are distributed evenly onto two full-length CDs, Agonoize are conjuring up the most effective balancing act to date between the hardest and most melodic works they have produced, thus far: an onslaught of heavily distorted beats, massive shuffle-steamrollers, unexpected melodic twists and harsh Dark- Industrial smashers.
Musically and theme-wise, Hexakosioihexekontahexa is the most versatile trip into the dark sides of human existence that the band has ever attempted, featuring the trademark mix of systematic provocation, tongue-in-cheek horror trips, well-aimed punches into the heart of the establishment, plus a few hot potatoes that the lads manage to tackle with just the right amount of tact.
'But does it shake the walls as it used to?' some might ask. You bet it does! 'Hexakosioihexekontahexa' is two CDs jam-packed with Agonoizes unique Aggro-Club-Hit-sounds but more versatile, harder, better and bigger, this time around!
It is, thus, hardly any wonder that Agonoize are considered the hottest thing in the Electro-scene, these days: sold-out concerts and overcrowded halls at their festival gigs should speak for themselves.
The double album contains the club-approved floor fillers 'Bis das Blut gefriert', 'Seelenbrecher' and 'Por*omagcenterfold' plus 19 more onslaughts of electronic mayhem.
