Blurb: C-Lekktor’s latest is a commonplace follow-up to their 2008 release.

 

C-Lekktor is a hard electro band from Mexico, formed around the year 2000 by the singularly named Marco, who first made a splash as an electro DJ in Mexico City during the ‘90s. After a string of self-released albums in the first half of the 2000s, C-Lekktor made its label debut with 2008’s The Silence Procession. The band’s latest offering, the Tendencias Suicidas EP features four new tracks as well as new interpretations of songs from The Silence Procession.

C-Lekktor’s influences include a long list of very similar artists, including such acts as Suicide Commando, Amduscia, as well as fellow Mexicans Hocico. Likewise, C-Lekktor’s sound consists almost entirely of relentless bludgeoning that makes for great dance floor fodder; however, there isn’t much else that really comes across as unique or refreshing. Even so, the frantic beats can sometimes be rather infectious, especially where the remixes on this disc are concerned. The Alien Vampires remix of “See My Hate” as well as Drained Scorn’s version of “Our Dark Side” are definitely the highlights of this release, each version appropriately enhancing the original and adding a little more flavor to the mix. As for the rest, C-Lekktor’s music is largely indistinguishable from the work of their peers, or even C-Lekktor’s back catalog. Hopefully C-Lekktor will take their hard working and prolific approach to music and create something a bit less repetitious on their next album.
