Review: Seraphim System PHO3N1X 2CD limited edition including MUTANT MTHFKR

This is a POWERHOUSE of audio combat thumping, spine ripping joy directly out of my soul. If you could extract DMT from someone via sound, these would be the weaponised beats used. It's the perfect blend of industrial and all the best parts of techno that leaves no room for underestimation, no time for rest, no hope for release from the powerful grip this firestorm of a DJ dance mix that is delivered with PHO3N1X, hot on the heels of the recent Obsidian Frontline album.

That's just PHO3NIX alone, the fact it has all of the MUTANT MTHFKR tracks on the second CD has me genuinely jumping for joy.

BL4KJ4K (John Stancil) of Seraphim System is someone I always rave about in terms of how impressed I am that he puts out so much material like a relentless machine. The Terminator has nothing on the relentless capability of this man when it comes to his musical talent.

MUTANT MTHFKR has been delivered in three instalments and only in a digital format until now. No matter how experimental Ser-Sys got with his other albums, the MUTANT releases were for those fans who wanted good, stomp heavy, dance floor industrial and they have been great releases. This special edition 2CD special of which there are only one hundred physical copies (all individually numbered) contains all of the MUTANT works; and that makes me a very happy rivet head.

So as much as he and my friends are probably sick of hearing about my love for Seraphim System having written many an Elektro Vox article on him and his self stylised 'Swagrrotech', I STILL feel like this is a name that should be on every DJ's mix and yet somehow almost never materialises during their sets. This has to change. I feel with PHO3N1X, that time is NOW.
