CD Review - X-RX - Update 3.0

genre : Industrial Rave / Techno


record label : Pronoize


release date : July 9th , 2010

“We are back! protect your ears ! ?The Industrial-Rave Gods from Cologne are back.

That's what  Pascal Beniesch  and  [VJ] ICD-10 announced to the dark scene of Europe on July 9th         

[x]-RX was founded in 2006 by Pascal  Beniesch. Their debut  album "Unm÷glich Erregend" contained club hits like "Feel the F*ckin' bass" and "Die Sexualkiste der H÷lle" which caused an industrial rave revolution .And it was a real revolution for the dark scene.Their second album "Stage 2" was releaed in 2009 - containing again club hits like "Bleeding Ears" and "Stage 2" - which kept fans in a dancing mood!

And now after a year of work , [x]-RX release ''Update 3.0'' , a brand new CD with 13 tracks (and 5 of them remixed) . It is exactly what anybody would expect from [x]-RX. The industrial Rave revolution continues more powerful than ever! This ''new school'' wave in the dark scene obviously started before [x]-Rx however it was risen by them in a level of a real music revolution.

Now,''Update 3.0'' comes to bring a dancing terror to the fans of Industrial Rave

I can't say it's perfect , obviously not! And not better from their previous release 'Stage 2'. However it's really good and quite into  their astonishing powerful beats!! The first track is ''Update'' and it's one of the best in this new CD! Now , if you want to listen something new from [x]-Rx , try ''Push it!'' which contains vocals!! It's the first time they use vocals in one of their club tracks! Who knows what other suprises we should expect from [x]-Rx in the future!

So..another upcoming hit is surely ''Electric Man'' which contains a very promising sound and great rhythym!! ''This is Rock n Roll'' is a fabulous example of industrial rave sound and '' Stage 2''. It's the [x]-Rx sound we all liked ! Can be easily compared to their previous work! In contrast to the rest of the album which is litterally an update in their sound!! ''Panikattache'' & ''The Doll Underground'' are great and really noisy stuff!! Kinky sounds after all are a specialty to  Pascal Beniesch that's why ''Virus Infect'' will make the  dance floors burn!!. Another track you should notice is ''Bass and Percussion'' ! The rest are good enough however not that perfect..

Anyway [x]-Rx did a great work if you compare it to their experience[since 2006 only] So imagine them in 10 years!! I cannot even think of it! Now let's have a look to the remixes.. All 5 remixes are good! However only two are fantastic! These are ''The Doll Underground'' remixed from SAM and of course ''Electric Man''(Quagmired by PHOSGORE). Make sure you listen to them!

Well , generally [x]-Rx have made some great work in their three albums..Update 3.0 is really good but could have been better. I am certain that their next work will be perfect! After all [x]-Rx have a unique sound in  their music so it is understandable that fans expect much more from them..As I said they will respond even better in the future!
