Nosferatu is back!

The first track on his new album, 'System_5601', is a darkcore track with breakcore influences. A real stomper with it's dark atmosphere and fitting vocals: 'Bombardement!'
'Outshine Any Competition' is, according to most people, the best track on the vinyl. I almost agree, it's the second best. We get heavy kicks thrown at us, combined with the right amount of rawness and distortion. And, like the vocals righty say, Nosferatu is once again 'Also demonstrating uncomprimising inventiveness and mastery of melody, that one rarely finds in heavy music.' A masterpiece.

The B-side brings us two great, but totally different tracks. 'Chronicles Of A Freak' is a mainstream track, with a great melody and gangster vocals. 'Running Interference', however, is a breakcore track. It shows Nosferatu doesn't only produce great melodies. Screw melodies, screw long breaks, just keep on pounding!

On the second vinyl, we start with 'Bustin The Crowd'. Like 'Chronicles Of A Freak', it's a mainstream hardcore track with gnagster vocals and a nice melody. The better of the two tracks on this C-side, is 'Enemigo Del Estago', Spanish for 'Enemy Of The State'. It has a really great, uplifting melody, not unlike 'Outshine Any Competition', but it has more speed and is less elaborate. Still, a great track.

'Flames Of Your Righteous Anger' is very much like 'System_5601'. It's also very dark, and very raw. A great track, a bit more mainstream, but really cool.
Finally, for me, the best track on this vinyl! The melody of 'Outta Control' really hit the spot for me, even better than 'Outshine Any Competition'. The buildup isn't exceptionally special, but the melody more than makes up for it :D

All in all, this album was well worth the wait! Topnotch, definitely recommended!
