Carbon 12: (demo)
- No One
Carbon 12 is the newly formed side project of Fear Factory's keyboard player.
Even with all the flack that I've given Fear Factory in the past, I'll have to
do a complete about face when discussing Carbon 12. On this self pressed four
song demo, Steve Tushar avoids remotely sounding like his other persona in Fear
Factory. Carbon 12 instead builds its roots from heir apparent synthcore bands
such as Chemlab and 16 Volt. Guitars and electronics coexist in mutual harmony
without either washing out the other in the final mixdown. This leaves plenty
of room to add vocals and creative samples with out confusing the listener with
other random elements in the track. Steve has even found a way to utilize
usually tacky female orgasm samples tastefully when I didn't think it could
ever be done. Carbon 12 definitely sticks out as the best self released music
in 1996 albeit it still being early in the year.
