Panic Lift have merged melodies that are soft, yet with a great deep beat and aggressive vocals. It is certainly a fresh slant on the genre. Bringing a melodic aggression into one track making it absolutely worth a listen.

You always have to admire a band of any genre that is willing to break the mould and mix it up a bit (excuse the pun).

Panic Lift, Every Broken Piece is a great pice of creativity.


Industrial band, Panic Lift continues the unraveling of its themed EP release cycle with the band’s first release of 2022 titled Stitched. This four song EP features two new songs titled “Every Broken Piece” and “Bitter Cold” with remixes from Mechanical Vein and Tragic Impulse.

Lyrically, “Every Broken Piece” and “Bitter Cold” continue with the familiar themes of stress, coping, and concerns of self-image. Hardcore Panic Lift fans may remember “Every Broken Piece” from Panic Lift’s lockdown shows in 2020 that were broadcast online during the height of the COVID19 Pandemic.

For Stitched, Panic Lift explores a harsh ebm sound more stylistically similar to their landmark debut record ,Witness To Our Collapse. James Francis explains “I’ve always tried to find a happy medium between what I’m doing now, and where I started” he continues “but now that I’m doing smaller releases, I have the ability to experiment with different styles without having to worry much about how they fit with the rest of my catalog”

Die Industrieband Panic Lift setzt die Auflösung ihres thematischen EP-Veröffentlichungszyklus mit der ersten Veröffentlichung der Band von 2022 mit dem Titel Stitched fort. Diese viersongsige EP enthält zwei neue Songs mit den Titeln "Every Broken Piece" und "Bitter Cold" mit Remixen von Mechanical Vein und Tragic Impulse.

Lyrisch setzen "Every Broken Piece" und "Bitter Cold" die bekannten Themen Stress, Bewältigung und Bedenken des Selbstbildes fort. Hardcore Panic Lift-Fans erinnern sich vielleicht an "Every Broken Piece" aus den Lockdown-Shows von Panic Lift im Jahr 2020, die während des Höhepunkts der COVID19-Pandemie online übertragen wurden.

Für Stitched erforscht Panic Lift einen rauen Ebm-Sound, der ihrer wegweisenden Debütplatte "Witness To Our Collapse" stilistisch ähnlicher ist. James Francis erklärt: "Ich habe immer versucht, ein glückliches Medium zwischen dem zu finden, was ich jetzt tue, und wo ich angefangen habe", fährt er fort, "aber jetzt, da ich kleinere Veröffentlichungen mache, habe ich die Möglichkeit, mit verschiedenen Stilen zu experimentieren, ohne mir viele Sorgen darüber machen zu müssen, wie sie zum Rest meines Katalogs passen".
