Klayton is back again and we’ve got the third installment of his quite ambitious project, “End of an Empire”.
Maybe I’m tired, maybe I’m getting too old for this EDM scene, don’t know, but Celldweller lost me lately, the previous Chapter 02 did not left any marks on me, although it was a top Celldweller production. His other project, “Transmissions vol. 01” was a nice surprise, Klayton explored the limitless spaces and possibilities of analog synthesizers, but somehow didn’t really touched me. Too much, too fast…too many releases. Maybe I’m old-fashioned and I still believe in the value of an album, a solid release, eventually on vinyl. F_ck digital!
I think in this digital era it’s getting harder to reach out to the people, the time feels shorter and our brain can’t absorb all the information anymore. Or maybe it’s just me.
But now, Celldweller delivered the wickedest track in years and one of the best electro-industrial anthems of the decade!!
“Good L_ck (Yo_’re F_cked)” it’s the best song Klayton have written and performed in years and it can be considered an excellent radiography of the times we’re living!
And “Just Like You” it’s a very well produced and build-up electro-ballad.
“Faction 08” it’s a killer sonic bomb. Love it. “Faction 09” it’s a wicked sonic aggression. Merciless.
“Chapter 03” by far it’s the best Celldweller release of this series and not only! Celldweller it’s at the top of his game!
The weak spots of this series are the remixes.
Unfortunately none of the contributing artist have managed so far too add something valuable to the original Klayton productions. Except Hecq eventually. His track it’s wicked as Hell! Although the remixes are also much better then on the previous remixes and it’s nice to listen for a couple of times repeatedly “Good L_ck (Yo_’re F_cked)”!
So, while I don’t believe in luck, you’ll gonna stay just f_cked! Big time!!
