Minefield - Decomposition: Re-Inventing Minefield Review

“Dead Poets Society’s After the Ball (Stark Raven Mad Remix) has more sex appeal than Asia Carrera in a service-filled threesome.”

Moving Hands reviews Decomposition: Reinventing Minefield.

MovingHands.net

   ” …I haven’t heard the original versions so I have no idea how this sounds compared to that, but this sounds great. The vocals performed by Tamara Kent are great, a clear and crisp voice, at times invincible, indestructible, at times terribly fragile, as if she could break any second. Tamara’s voice reminds me a lot of Tori Amos, especially on “It’s too late”, where the piano treatment resembles the sound of Amos as well, only the surroundings here are a bit more industrial.
    The remix provided by Dead Poets Society is truly magnificent, ever growing, ever changing, the vocals layered over simple electronics and great noisy beats with the piano floating on top…”

Decomposing Composers!

We now have copies of Decomposition: Re-Inventing Minefield available. The mixes are taken from MINEFIELD’s 2001 5 song ep entitled `After The Ball” and feature the work of 10 international artists of the Electronic/Goth genre. The compilation was conceived by music publicist Jett Black of Nocturnal Movements. DECOMPOSITION features a wide palette of sound skillfully woven together to form an exquisite 55+ minute musical tapestry. Trance, Industrial, Trip-hop, Ambient, Punk and Techno treatments are all on the menu. Fans of Dead Poets Society, Soy Futura, Soviet Radio, Karl Mohr , Spectre VII, Cryptomnesia, Blue Mars, Bytet, Ingrown and The Synthetic Dream Foundation will delight at these new interpretations of Minefield classics. `The mixes on this disc really do underscore our electronic influences and push the envelope as far as experimentation goes’ claims Tamara Kent, vocalist and lyricist for MINEFIELD.

If you are interested in picking up a copy for yourself keep an eye on CDbaby.com. The album is scheduled to be available there later this month. We will be certain to let everyone know once it is up.
