"Cursed Days present us with an explosive, heart pounding & dramatic industrial piece that is in no shortage of awesomeness; 'обмаль' (the title of the track and translated as 'next to nothing') paints a heavy and thunderous landscape of ominous synthesized sounds and powerful drum hits that take the perfect shape when a set of semi vocoder vocals start driving the whole song. As an anonymous producer from central Ukraine, Cursed Days enhances the mistery surrounding it with an aggresive and impressively tweaked overall music production incorporating some experimental arrangements too, this screams 'post apocalyptic' mood and ambience at its finest, and it does gets better (and sinister) when the artist describes it as 'unleashing your inner murderer in order to cope with vanishing reality. Industrial tribalism covered with techno overdrive', this theme reigns supreme when listening to this track, there a lot of synth efx, volume tricks, probably side chain madness (or at least that's what we've perceived and it's superb), and again, the vocal layer is very melodic and contrasts with the background music in an intriguing sometimes perturbating kind of way. Listen to Cursed Days specially recommended when you enjoy heart stomping heavy drums and rythms, post apocalyptic madeness (sometimes reminding like a Mad Max Fury Road desert persecution) and an elevated sense of urgency. This is some of the top industrial music stuff."
