3 stars "Error Spectre" is a 6 track, 35:35 minutes long EP release by Dutch industrial black/death metal act Control Human Delete. It's a self-produced affair and it's the band's first official release (they did however release the "Promo MCD 2003" earlier the same year).

The music on the EP varies between industrial/electronic/ambient sections and more raw black/death metal parts. There are both speaking/talking sections and growling/raspy vocal parts in the music. Movie samples top the soundscape off. On Paper this sounds quite intriguing with a sci-fi theme to further catch my interest, but it's not a perfect release by any means. I find myself enjoying the more harsh black/death metal parts of the music very much and bands like Dødheimsgard and The Axis of Perdition come to mind when the music is best. It's when the band plays the more industrial/ambient sections that my attention begin to wander. Those parts are pretty long and they are also too long drawn and tedious. If they had been short atmosphere creating pieces they would have been great, but as they are now they drag my rating down.

The sound production is decent although it sounds a bit like a home recording. It's not a major issue though. Upon conclusion there are many interesting things going on, during the playing time of "Error Spectre" and fans of industrial black/death metal could find this EP of some value. I'd get their debut full-length studio album "Terminal World Perspective (2007)" first though as the band at that point had learned a great deal about composing more well balanced industrial black/death metal. A 2.5 - 3 star (55%) rating is still warranted though.

UMUR | 3/5 |
