Review:

 

The Delta is one of my absolute favourite bands as some of you might know by

now? I feel like a five year old child climbing the heap of presents at

Christmas Eve (we open the gifts the 24th of December here in Sweden) every

time I get my hands on a new release from them! My expectations are almost

unfair to the band but they usually give me what I want so why should I lower

my expectations? "Hero FX" didn´t sound very promising though when I studied

the short soundsamples at http://www.boshkebeats.com so my first thought was

to just buy the damn record and file it among the other Boshke Beats releases.

It´s a collectors worst nightmare to be forced to buy crap just to get a

complete collection :´-( At the Arvika festival, http://www.galaxen.se, I

finally got to see The Delta live and when they played "Hero FX" I understood

that this ep isn´t something you can judge just by some poor RA-samples

through your computer speakers!!! It´s like eating old cold food and comparing

it to freshly made hot food. It´s unfair!!! I do understand why I didn´t like

this EP at first though... it´s not similar enough to my favourite tracks by

The Delta in any way. I like the epic horror-movie soundrack-feeeling the

tracks "Thing", "Pop", "Standby" and "Def by Delta part 2" gives me. The two

different versions of "Hero FX" (they´re not that different!) are more similar

to looping Techno than scary horror music and that´s why I don´t think those

two tracks are among the best ones The Delta has made so far. If yoy feel that

"A+B" and "Fade" are the best tracks from the latest album you´re up for a

real treat... you´re going to dig "Hero FX"!!! Baaaaadly! Both verisons of

"Hero FX" are pounding and stomping techno with lots of atmoshere and that

makes me to wonder if this is the new sound of The Delta or if it´s just

within the perimeters of how they sound. The "Hero FX" EP improves a lot with

every dB you can get from your soundsystem so play it as high as you possibly

can! The energy in this music will be released better beyond 100 dB so keep

busting your stereo to give you all it can manage, you won´t be dissapointed!

If you wonder why I don´t scan a picture of the record as I usually do... my

copy is a white label from the Boshke Beats competition! I was one of the five

lucky bastards who won :-)

This does nothing for me... First of all, what's the point of having two SO

similar tracks?... Secondly, I second Stormbringers taste in atmospheric Delta

tracks, and IMO this is too boring... But I guess even masters like The

Delta-guys can do mediocre stuff... 5/10

This is still, 5 years later, The Deltas latest beast(?). Go ahead and play it loud, but before you could get anywhere near the volume it needs to be played at your speakers will be dead. So yes I'm with stormbringer on this one, this is supposed to be played loud on a large system, not some puny homestereo.

 

Parts 1 & 2 are almost identical to about 90%. The bassline is not low and rumbling instead it's, quite unlike the delta, a bit middle layered skippedy boppedy and packs no real force at all. That which stands out the most in Part 1 is a very sharp loud and effective whooshing FX noise. I remember listening to this in headphones and I couldn't turn down the volume for some reason, it was loud loud loud! It was literally tearing through my head splitting it in half.

 

This one is not all too fun listening to at home and I would rather hear it at outdoor parties or festivals with a system that can do it justice.
