Krebs – Blood and Stone (EP review) |Machine Man Records, 2017|

1. Blood and Stone, 2. Vulnerable Outline, 3. Razor Tree

Blood and Stone is the 2nd EP of Krebs, released in 2017. The band is the brainchild of Michael Haggerty (lyrics, vocals, programming, keyboards, guitars, and bass).

Blood and Stone EP offers 3 high quality electronic songs. Even though moods as well as subgenres (such as dark electro, electronic rock) vary between each song, the EP's concept is consistent.
The opening song pleasantly develops until the very last note. The composition is based on a steady tempo with beats supporting various but always delicately organized arrangements. These are shared between memorable verses and the chorus which can be sung along with the vocalist. Michael's voice is soft here, and feels a bit lonely and distant.

Guitar riffs accented in the following 'Vulnerable Outline' firmly place it in electronic rock. The solid rhythm is occasionally shattered by noises and repetitive vocals. The track is memorable and short enough to become a potential hit, especially if accompanied by a suitable video. Fans of Marilyn Manson or Skinny Puppy should dig the song from the very first listening.

'Razor Tree', on the contrary, brings an uplifting, almost sunny mood. It's a perfect track that not only sounds good as it is but could also play its part really well as a component of an advertising campaign.

It should be noted that excellent the audio quality, mastering, and production enhance the listening experience of this release quite a lot. Grab it as soon as you can, whether you're deep into alternative electronic music or a listener of many tastes.
