V.e.N, aka Virtual Explorer of Noise are an industrial act from Budapest, Hungary. The band mix EBM and aggressive industrial on this EP. It was mastered and recorded by István Gazdag (FIRST AID 4 SOULS) and it features four versions of the title track plus a demo track.
“Last Seconds (2013 Edit)” is a really beat heavy track with shouted vocals and great keyboard stabs that would sound awesome in a club. “Last Seconds (EBM Version by Cyberpsiichosis)” is a more euro house version, but still keeping the integrity of the song. “Last Seconds (Industry Mix)” has more electronic sounds going on, kind of acid house touches here and there, but it still keeps the song from sounding unlike the original version. “Half Dead Life (Demo)” is a really cool sounding instrumental track that has a nice mix of EBM and early techno. “Last Seconds (First Version)” is the original and still is the most powerful of the remixes on here, sounding strong and in your face and makes you want to shout along to it.
A nice EP with really well done remixes that don’t stray from the original a lot, instead they add to the original and give it a nice push into a different sound. I’m looking forward to more from them in the future.
