By: DJ Kreepy Krawly of Club Illuminati

Conflict is the 2003 EP from the female-fronted EBM/SynthPop band THE AZOIC, consisting of Kristy Venrick (lyrics, vocals), and Steve Laskarides (programming, engineering). This EP is a multimedia CD consisting of a music video provided in two formats, and eight versions of the club hit "Conflict". Remixes by Iris, Negative Format, Imperative Reaction, Massive in Mensch, System Syn, and CombiChrist (an Icon of Coil side project).

Conflict is a instant club hit with infectious dance beats, well-layered programming and explosive, mesmerizing vocals from the talented and passionate Kristy Venrick. This EP is superbly polished and well produced, covering a wide variety of styles and sounds from neo-industrial, electro-trip-pop, technotronic, progressive electronic, and to synthpop making this a well-rounded EP with an array of tempos and rhythms in which should provide something for everyone.

Recommended for fans of female synth acts like COLLIDE. For also enthusiasts of synth pop bands such as Syran, or the progressive electronic elements of AsciiDisko.
