Review:

 

Well I don't like this CD ... There are good moments, but this CD really sounds

old and isn't really melodious ...

Anyway the last 3 minutes of Track 3 are really interesting ... one of the

rare moments of inspiration on this CD ... its style is quite similar to UX

album ... Rating : 2.5/10

Well, my opinion is different. I think it's very good And original production.

Very acid and dark trance (real goa core) Lot of screams, painful crying, like

soundtrack to the horrorfilm. I don't think it's similar to something. This

album has its own style. Best tracks 3,5-8. It's not melodic album, but also

it's not empty minimalistic style. Rating 7/10

One of the first darkest psytrance albums I heard...

I'd love to hear the Xenomorph vs HuxFlux work (Xenoflux or Huxmorph I think

they call themselfs ;) ) ..

with some spooky clear sounds to it and the bassdrumm in ACiD For BlooD

Xenomorph kicks ass! This huy knows his shit (and movies... haha) Almost all of

the samples are from Horror Movies, like the screaming in Obscure Spectre,

which was taken from Hellraiser 2 : Hellbound! Beginning of the Obscure

Spectre track is a sample of one of the series of Millennium, you know that

mystery series with Lance Henriksen as the main character. Other samples are

also from horror movies. Mix it with the really acidic style of Xenomorph

itself and you create the scariest Goa trance ever to hit your eardrums. I've

never heard an album which could scare someone, but this one can!! I

absolutely love it and will memorize the day I bought this forever! 9/10 from

me.

Nr 5: Oh my god!!! what a killer track! The track alone is worth buying the

album. Nice "Aliens" samples and the moans are everywere!! Aaah..Not to

mension the melody who makes you wanna TRIP! (10/10)

Nr 6: Well well, the first singel, the only singel? Na not really if you count

the two other songs on the Horror-Trip E.P ;) Great track, I think everybody

know how it sounds so I'm not gonna waste my time on a review. (9/10)

Nr 7: One of the better track surely! Love the melody and the "Astral

Projection"-sounds. Love the intro in this song to. The hi-hat kicks ass as

well as the bassdrum. Xenomorph has got the taste of laying a xtra drum on

half of the total drums?! That sounded wicked, fuck it. The Song's is great

except the sample in the middle of the tune. Don't like it at all. Although,

the song kicks ass. (8/10)

Nr 8: Xenomorph (in abient spirit) when hes on fire! Very nice and intelligent,

weird sounds who turn my head upside down when I'm about to sleep. Sounds like

he wanted to give us a nice and well worked out finish.

 

Great job Xenomorph!

Cd Overall (9/10)

Well well, much already said. But i'll just repeat and add a few things. ;)

First of all is this album wery dark and "scary". Sitting hear in front of the

laptop and enjoying it right now in my beloved CanMan headphones. Now to the

Review:

Nr 1: Very soft ambient with crazy sound but also very relaxing and

minimalistic in the melodies. One of the bader songs on the album.(6,5/10)

Nr 2: Now we're talking Xenomorph! First I must say I just LOOVE the intro in

this song. There are much more scarymovie-themes look-a-like melodies. and

on top of this a very powerful kickdrum.. Shit, fucking creepy. ;)Good one!

(7/10)

Nr 3: Well well, great bassline here, veey soft and plesant to listen to. The

Kickdrum is Rock-HARD! Listen at 5.40 and just enjoy the drummix, goood,

goosebums in 2 seconds! ;) Just love the sounds in the backround, so far from

annoying as you can get. LISTEN TO IT! (9/10)

Nr 4: Start with a flickery kickdrum in the backround, but what happens after

that? the melody gets annoying and sounds a bit false. The song has no

character, it keeps on changing. Well, i like the drum in the end, the same

one as in "Acid for blood". (5/10)

umm...not really! an ok album, sounds scary at first (because of all the

screams and samples), but after a few listens you start realizing how simple

it is. the simplicity of the sound is righ in your face, and it's just too

annoying. musicwise, this is not scary at all. remove those horror movie

samples, and what you've got left is very melodic goa trance, almost nitzhonot

in parts. the sounds are also very plain and uninteresting. it's half-baked,

eh? =) not even close to i.m.'s "the gathering", or especially delta (now

that's what i call scary!)

This album in my opinion is absolutely groundbreaking. First of all the

downright horror element to this,is to my knowledge, the first to try to scare

the living shit out of you. Secondly, even if you ignore the vocal samples,

the sounds on it perfectly complement the mood of the album and,in typical

Koyote fashion,is among the top produced and released albums in this genre. I

give this album a 10!!! Also can't wait for the new one.

One of the best bands out there, scary, dark, hard, and full on

at the dance floor it just doesn´t get better than this.

 

This band made the best track I ever heard in my life "KILLER STATE", it really

can´t get better than that XENEMORPH rules........

Tracks 1,2,3,4. Fuck the rest, they're shit. These four tracks however are

about as good as it gets. Be prepared to be scared/scarred...

Egh, blah. Silly. Screaming, screaming and more screaming. Doesn't leave much

of an impression. It's not all that scary either. Try listening to "The Delta

- Pop" all alone, at night, REALLY REALLY LOUD :-) The children start singing

and then it gets scary :-) After The Delta this album sounds very silly. His

new EP - "Gnomes & Hexenkessel" is much better. More serious, leaves a better

effect. 6/10 - Cause there are some good tracks (track 5), the album is above

average. I'm waiting for a second album, that should be nice. Bom! - Raven

I saw Xenomorph playng in portugal, and it's by far the darkest trance I ever

heard. First time I heard was in the party, and it was on the Halloween, so he

was really perfectly choosen for that ocasion.

But in my opinion his a little too dark and his sound gives a little 'negative

energies', wich is exactly what we don't want in psytrance.

I never saw so much people freaking out has I saw in that party.

Wanted this one for ages... Finally got it a few weeks back... the whole album

lives up to the first track i heard by them... Obscure spectre on pulse 5, the

most scary and evil psy trance can get... but not necessarily dark and

bassy.... good album 8/10

2/10. I dissagree with InFeCted XeN. This album really is not good. Dark Soho

is a hell of a lot better. The 4 reviews above the other 2 above mine are

pretty harsh, and I wouldn't be so extreme, but whatever. To each his or her

own. Xenomorph would not be anywhere near as known if it wasn't for their

samples. It does create good atmosphere, but the songs are like a dark techno

that sounds too simple and uninspired to be considered great. Thats my opinion

anyway. ^^^
