ZARTHAS “Spit/Ignite”

(Violent Journey)
OK, I’m not sure what to make of the description electro rockers. I’m no connoisseur of electro music. I did try to get into the whole EBM back in the 90s but I only got as far as Nitzer Ebb and Nine Inch Nails. Die Krupp wasn’t really my cup. But I’m willing to give it a try again. This Finnish band might not be what I expect them to be after all. Hearing this I start to suspect that I got it all wrong because this to me sound more like any other hardrock band I’ve heard in the last 30 years. Not that there is anything wrong with that. ZARTHAS have more in common with the likes of The Rasmus and its likes than any EBM/electro rock bands you can think of. But is it any good then? Well, this isn’t the kind of stuff that I usually listen to but if you like you hardrock on the melodic side and don’t like it too hard on the ears then this is for you. Borderline hardrock/AOR that should appeal to anybody with an urge for melodies. Anders Ekdahl
