VA - Stomper's Agony compiled by Delysid [ Acidance Records / GeoDarkStar ]

well the moment i saw the track list i knew i was in for a treat. this compilation is groovy, melodic, powerful and above all tasty. hehe. ok lets get down to a track by track breakdown.

1. menog vs audialize - mental reproduction (144 bpm): here we have a monster collaberation of perhaps the 2 most well known portugese artists, so lets see how it turned out. has a cool start and the bass work sounds like something you would expect from a menog track. its dark, grim and gritty with some nice work on the highs. the track has its finer moments where you can see each of the artists lend their special touch to the track. the ambient work is also pretty nice, very eery and spooky. the synth work is pretty standard stuff from menog, but there are a few squeky synths which go pretty well. the synth work around the 5th minute is wicked and is a moment where you see both artists performing the voodoo that they do to the fullest! the melody is slick and twisted. a great track to open things with. 8/10.

2. random - bifurcation (147 bpm) : here we have ross dubois, a well known name in the american psy scene with a pretty groovy track. the beggining has a kind of tribal feel to it and reminds me of his track 'personal game' from his album. very cool ambient pads, and the bass kick arrangement has a no non-sense attitude to it. the track pretty much takes off where the last track left off as far as the power readings go. love the melodic sounds he uses, and how it just gells well with the twilight style random has. the track reminds me alot of chromatone's work which is cool considering the amount these 2 acts collaberate. the synthwork around 3:45 is cool, very fluid. subsequently the synths used are pretty acidic, and distorted, all along there is this very cool melody that comes and goes which is really catchy. i wish that the melody was used a little more, but the end product we have here is still a fine catch by any standards. great track . 8/10.

3. khopat - come closer (145 bpm) : here we have khopat presenting us with a beefy tune. the bass kick arrangement is nice and fat until the 1st minute where it gets a little more serious. the synth work is nice and twisted and uses some cool stereo fx. the compilation is getting a lot darker with this track. the synth work is seriously twisted, and alot harsher than the first 2 tunes with squishy squeeks all over. the build up around the 3rd minute is a treat, and the way the bassline changes is great. leaves you with a big smile, sort of wondering where this sick ride is going hehe. the track kind of loses it around the 4th minute, and from there go on just gets harder and harder. at about this time the track reminds me alot of a darker version of technodrome's style. really awesome stuff, which keeps the power going till the very end. another great track, so far no fillers here . 8/10.

4.tryambaka - stroke of luck (148 bpm): this is tryambaka's first apperance on the compilation and its a pretty sweet one at that. this dude's been making some really awesome power packed music full of great melodies for quite some time now. the track starts off on a very dark note with some evil laughter playing in the back and it picks up really well with all sorts of twisted sounds screaming out. by 1:20 the track is moving in full steam. the atmosphere is psychedelic and the synth work just takes it to a whole new level. the track's mean, and the story is a wild ride. the track talks to you and im sure it would make ppl lose it on the dancefloor. around the 4th minute is where things start to get super serious, and the power meter starts rising higher and higher, until u can feel the eruption coming up. ahahah totally wicked. the mind games go on for a bit, and finally around the 6th minute its reaches critical mass and goes into a break with some 'stroke of luck' ahahahah. twisted effects on the sample and the synth work is off the hook! really steller track by tiago here. definitely a highlight of this release. 9/10.

5.toxic - mofos in da house (145 bpm): the release takes a slower turn after the high paced tryambaka track, and this tune starts off with a pretty spooky sample about jack and 'the groove of all grooves' and a really catchy tune. the guitar riffs are around as can be expected from a toxic track. the kick bass arrangement is pretty hard and tight, and there are some cool synths used. kind of lend the track an element of mystery. and the melody from the beginning comes back around 2:30, in a very very twisted and down right demented form! ahaha really wonderful work from avi. demented, epic and oozing with power. the track evolves rather nicely with new melodies coming and rolling in really smoothly. towards the end of the track toxic uses some clubby synths and the track kind of becomes lighter, which kind of lets me down. none the less, this is another great track and shows alot of toxic's new style. 8.5/10.

6. sick addition - today's madness (145 bpm): here we have tryambaka and d-maniacs collaberating in contributing their own brand of madness. the track starts off with a great sample of adam sandler and jack nicholson from the movie 'anger management'. ' i dont want u to listening to any angry music' - ahahahah what a way to get things started. the kick bass is tight and simply put it - hard as hell. the synth work is cool and around the 2nd minute kind of sounds a little like toxic's style. the bass line used is fat and rolls all over the place kind of like a lumbering giant. around the 4th minute things get super serious with some really amazing synths which literally scream at you! 'madness'! ahaha the synths just keep getting better and better. about the 5th minute the track kind of stops and takes a really cryptic turn with some super freaky sample work talking about the final battle between good and evil, and the tune that comes out is something straight out of the phantom of the opera! ahaha delicious. the melody is just wonderful, and the story is just epic to say the least. this kind of track makes dance floors go insane! beautiful music, just wonderful. this is by far the track of the compilation. its a 10 minute roller coaster ride with so many highs its difficult to keep count of really. i think my favourate moment is around the 9th minute, the melody is just full of raw emotion. truely a gem. 10/10!!

7. delysid - stomper's agony (148 bpm) : finally we have the controllers of this wild ride with the title track - 'stomper's agony'. it starts off with some catchy synth work and some great samples. i think the samples are of goa gil talking about psychedelic music. the atmosphere and ambience is epic but soon goes into full steam by some neat tricks with the pitch and kicks. the melody is great as one would expect from any delysid track. when the track loses it, its just awesome. the track evolves smoothly going from one sound to the next sound in perfect harmony, becoming more and more intense. this track is definitely not for the feint hearted. the break around the 4th minute is wonderful, and the melodies that ooze out are great. the track kind of gets a tribal feeling for the buildup, but soon drops everything and goes beserk around 5:15. another superb track this one. 9/10.

8. wicked wires vs brain hunters - mr. mars (148 bpm) - the intro to this track just is just bubbling in power and when the track finally gets in you know that these guys are taking no prisoners. very aggressive bassline, with some cool spacey sounds and some neat phaser like synths all over. the track surely has the fast as hell feeling that one would expect from any of delysid's work (here under their alias wicked wires). the track is intense and the samples used are pretty spooky talking about schizophrenia which kind of goes with a track name like 'mr.mars' hehe. track sounds alot like a menog track especially in the break of the 4th minute. the play around alot with the pitch and pull of some nifty tricks in the same break. and the melody that follows is wicked! heheh this track is a bomb and would destroy any dance floor. a great track, though not as good as the previous solo by delysid. 8/10.

9. brain hunters - genetic poison (150 bpm) - here we have brain hunters from mexico with his solo track. it starts off with some great sample work from the movie doom 3 i think. the samples go really well with the whole story of the track, which is intense and insanely fast at 150 bpm. expect wonderful noise from this one . there are twisted chopped up synths all over the place, which follows with another very dark and aggresive atmosphere. the synth work is great with catchy melodies being thrown at you. the breaks in the track are cool with loads of tricks being used from changing pitch to beat arrangement. and the power levels on this one just keep rising. and the break around 2:40 is a BLAST! i love the way the samples are used and how the melody keeps coming and going. ahaha total mayhem! 'do not kill everybody they are not infected!' ahahah this is just stellar work from brain hunters. towards the 2nd half the track kind of gets a very eery twitchy kind of edge to it which is great. superb track and another highlight of this compilation. 9.5/10.

10. meta aka aeon - boing! (bonus track) (145 bpm) - this bonus track from meta allows things to drop down to a slower pace as seen in the bpm count. i was rather interested by this track considering he is on the verge of releasing a solo album. if this track is anything like the stuff on the album, we are in for another interesting release. the track starts off with some spacey sounds and leaves you with no hint of what your in for. when the track truely takes off it has a really catchy fat bassline to it and the only phrase that comes close to describing it is groovy as hell. the synths are wonderful and the melody is great. really groovy, perfect way to finish off this furious compilation. with some chanting like sounds happening in the back ground sort of has a tribal feel to it but the melody keeps things in perspective albeit sort of lends a sluggish feeling to the track as a whole. but dont let that fool you, this track would definately keep things moving in a party. the evolution of the track is seamless and the changes in melody and sounds is subtle and well thought out. a really nice, groovy track and a great way to finish things off. 9/10.

all in all this is a great compilation. any fans of twilight scene from portugal will have a field day with this release. the tracks are aggressive and powerful, and above all the melodies are just wonderful. all the tracks here are pretty solid and there aren't any 'fillers' here. great work by acidance, geomagnetic and delysid for getting these bunch of stomper's on 1 cd.

overall - 9/10
favourates - 4!,5,6!!!!,7!!,9!!,10!
