Pulse Legion oNE tHiNG

Pulse legion are capable of creating a very dark, brooding, synthetic, electronic sound for the darkened corners of a dance floor, but their sophomore album becomes boring in the end. They have the end of the world beats down — the haunting keyboards and vox heavy vocals on “Release” are classic of the Metropolis sound. By staying too true to this sound, most notably on “Torn Within” and “Faith In Sin,” Pulse Legion have ensured that by the end of their follow-up to Evolve, the listener is left dulled around the edges they are supposed to create.
