Dare is the first (mini) album by Vomito Nergro. Mario Vaerewijck has left the band, wich leaves Gin Devo and Guy Van Mieghem. They team up with A Split Seconds Chrismar Chayell as producer again (he also produced the EP Stay Alive) and records five new tracks.
Chrismar's input on the first track Monday is very apperant, as it is very similar in sound to Crismar's solo projekt Chayell in sound and style; very New Beat. A great instrumental track, but a bit odd for Vomito Negro.
The new force is like a mix of classic Vomito Negro and new wave. This is as upbeat and catchy as the band will ever get, but still with a sinister touch and a big pinch of darkness.
Fire burns is back to familiar Vomito Negro grounds. Agressive and effective EBM with alot of industrial feel to it. My personal favorite on this release.
The ending Children of today is another track that kind of strays from the Vomito Negro formula. This is in my opinion a very gothic and dramatic song with a different kind of vocals compared to the other songs.
This album contains five great songs that are very diverse in style. It's very accessible and has none of the ambient industrial tracks that can be found on some of Vomito Negro's releases. This is a real favorite of mine and if you are interested in checking out some of Vomito Negro's earlier releases, this album is a good one to start with.
