Raw, angst-filled vocals and appropriately cynical samples are layered over pummeling electronics on this debut release from the Salt Lake City based Symbiont. 10 truly distinct tracks,close to 60 minutes of harsh industrial. Harsh percussion blends into catchy dancefloor beats with unique melodies. Ology is rich with hate, but occasionally allows the sun to peak from behind the dark clouds on beautifully loathsome instrumental tracks.

Reviews

The Salt Lake City based band Symbiont is the latest signing to the DSBP Records roster. Consisting of members Wrythe and XON, Symbiont create harsh electro in the vein of such bands as Aghast View, I, Parasite and Velvet Acid Christ. Symbiont is one of those bands that refuse to sell-out to the current synthpop influenced sounds of today's EBM landscape and instead opt to keep things harsh and in your face.

On their first release entitled "Ology," Symbiont give you plenty of fuel to motivate your ass all over the dancefloor with such tracks as "Step Child" and "Aggro Culture," which mix fast paced dancefloor electronics with highly aggressive and personal lyrics. Symbiont do give you some time to catch your breath though as demonstrated on the slower instrumental tracks "Consummate Saturnine" and "Tri-Polar" for instance, which reminded me a lot of I, Parasite.

Once again DSBP Records does not disappoint. If you're looking for an alternative to all the latest synthpop influenced EBM of today's scene or feel like hearing something harsh, angst-filled and full of hatred, I recommend Symbiont's "Ology." Symbiont bring back some much needed aggression to a scene that is a bit too overpopulated presently with Synthpop and "feel good" dance music.
