Album Review
Reviewed 2003-12-26 
Guitar-driven melodies, some pissed of lyrics and electric drums in the background...ahhh...agro industrial. Composed of Erik Gristle, Dr. K, Stripper Gore and Thommy Rautic, eROTic brings us some old-school sounding industrial along the vein of older Nine Inch Nails and Ministry. They have the right idea in terms of the lyrics, beats, hooks and aggressiveness. Unfortunately, like many bands on a limited budget, the recording equipment and sessions don't let that shine through as much as possible; with better production and some “radio-edit” songs this would be a much stronger album.
the good: if you want to disturb the neighbors or you listeners...play this the bad: too much treble, not enough bass; eq guys, EQ!! and muffled sound on tracks the ugly: saying there are 2 tracks when there really aren't (tracks 12 and 13 are absent)
potty-mouth tracks: 1,3,6,7,9---see inside for times
(note: all numbers are out of 10, i.e. 5/10)1. Tried: harsh guitars and vocals; too much swearing...AVOID 2.Problems: similar to track 1, but playable; clean (8) 3.STDj: good beats and lyrics with some agnst; swears(-2:47)(-1:34)(-0:28) (7) 4.Forever: the ballad of the record; bit slower and not as harsh (8) 5.Nothing: female backing vocals on the chorus and good screaming about 3 minutes into it (8) 6.Cum: swearing; questionable lyrics...AVOID 7.Down: “metal” sound of double-pedal drums; swears (-4:16)(-3:23)(-1:34) (-1:09) 8.Delicate: straight out of a horror movie; harsh vocals in chorus (6) 9.Showerfuck: due to title alone...AVOID 10.Remember Di'Anno: hard rock sound (7) 11.Ribbons of Mercy: slower tempo with decent beats (8)
