yelworC is the solo dark electro-industrial music project of Peter Devin. After several years of silence, Peter finally rises again to deliver this sixteen track collection of some of the best dark electro I've heard in a while.

This is a concept album inspired from Dante's Divine Comedy (aka Dante's Inferno) which is about a journey through hell. And this CD does sound like a long dark journey. This is not the type of CD where you can pick out club hits, because there isn't any. This CD was designed to be listened to from beginning to end.

As soon as you press play on your audio player, your journey begins. The music grabs hold of you and doesn't let go until it's over. The songs offered here are a blend of structured and experimental styles. This allows for them to be both beat heavy and artistic all at the same time.

The electronic programming is quite varied with a lot happening constantly while heavy beats, samples and somewhat distorted male vocals overlay haunting melodies. Some songs are energetic and aggressive, while others are more mellow and moody. There are even a few orchestrated dramatic instrumentals that add even more emotion to the mix.

What I like most about this CD is how creative and interesting the music is. There's so much to hear that you will never get bored. This is not dance music for clubs. This is music that makes you pay attention to it and really lose yourself in it.

With sixteen tracks you're given a lot of music here, and it's all good. There's so much going on that you can't help but be hooked. This is a very dark and disturbing emotional ride that you will enjoy taking.

If you enjoy electro-industrial music similar to Das Ich, Hocico, In Strict Confidence, Leaether Strip, Velvet Acid Christ and :wumpscut:, this CD is for you.
