ALBUMREVIEWS : ABSURD MINDS - SERVE OR SUFFER
Once it was called futurepop, today a term like dark techno is more in and the big question remains : does it all matter? I think not, but thing is that Absurd Minds are a common name in the alternative electronic circuit since they released "Deception"-album back in 2000. It always has been a matter who could join the big three (Covenant, Apoptygma Berzerk and VNV Nation) and if there is a 4th act to join that league then it certainly goes to Absurd Minds. Not that these guys from Dresden do anything new, they just write dark melodies, a poppy touch, loud (but never harsh) and yes then you have something like early Terminal Choice or Project Pitchfork. "Serve or suffer" is a classic futurepop-album with 13 dancefloorblasters and therefore it can be put on your shelves next to "Future Perfect" by VNV Nation. In Germany they would say : Tipp des Monates!
