Voicians—the self-titled FiXT debut EP and first part of Dan Voicians’ full-length effort—is as sharp as a razor’s edge.
The noise cuts through the air swift and sharply, creating an aura of otherworldly electronic rock from the German-based artist. Songs like the EP’s opener and cornerstone track “Alive” simply explode, matching it’s lyrical intensity with catchy hooks that won’t soon be forgotten by any and all who hear it. The record continues to flourish with tracks like “This Pain Feels Real, “Show Me The Way,” and “So Clear – each blending between dark and transparent, heavy and blistering, along with a subtle beauty to deliver a perfect amalgamation of aural bliss. This is highlighted best in the European-influenced electronic track “Empire”, and even more so in it’s stripped-down acoustic version that breathes a brand new life into the track.
The legion of mixers behind these tracks is as diverse as the styles on display here, with appearances from Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly, Conjure One) on “Alive”, Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, I See Stars) on “Show Me The Way”, Grant Mohrman (Celldweller, Blue Stahli) on “This Pain Feels Real”, and electronic artist Comaduster on “So Clear” – all helping to bring out the first part of Voicians in full force.
Voicians displays an incredible range of musicality with his FiXT debut, illuminating just how expansive the future is for this emerging electronic rock artist.
