In 2001 on Yahoo Chat's Electronica Room, I came across a user named Paul Blackout. His name interested me, I thought he was a massive fan of Forze Records 20! He mentioned that he was a Drum and Bass/Hardcore DJ producer from Newcastle. He talked about his Ruff-Teck release and that he was releasing music on a fiercely independent record label called Bloody Fist. In 2002 in Yahoo Chat, I told Paul that I was coming down to Newcastle for a Bloody Fist party that he was DJ-ing at. He said we should catch up and that he had a copy of Hellfish and Producer - No Mistakes Allowed for me, which I was after at the time. 800 kilometres later, me and my mates entered the infamous Hunter On Hunter Hotel in Newcastle, NSW 2300. Considering it was only $2, I had a pretty good time. While Warren Syndicate Burke played a filthy Breakbeat Jungle set, I finally met Paul Blackout in the Smoko outdoor area. He was a cool guy and really does look like Alf Stewart! He talked about his upcoming vinyl on Hardline Yellow and gave me No Mistakes Allowed. Because I'm from Queensland, he mentioned in passing that a new artist from Queensland was getting a release on Hardline Rekordingz, that really piqued my interest, this was news to me. The next night, I went to a Sydney Utopia party with Lenny Dee and Rob Gee, paid $60 and had a shit time. A few months later, on Bloody Fist's financially damaging STOCK section, there it appeared: Bioxeed - The Acid Test EP Hardline 12 $18. Produced in Queensland, sent to a record label in Western Australia, pressed in the Czech Republic, distributed by a German company and now sitting in a New South Wales record store. That's a lot of kilometres! Mark Newlands description of the record was "Austere Industrial Hardcore and Acidcore similar to Rage Reset." I was sold.For me personally, Murder is the best track on the record. It starts with a hauntingly dark intro, then the incredibly punchy kickdrums take over. But its the uniquely sounding wobbly acid like synth that makes this track. It floats throughout the track, I'd never heard it before, I later realised, nobody sounds like Bioxeed. During the second half of the track the dark haunting pads return further intensifying the track. I noticed that all four tracks are almost devoid of breakdowns, Bioxeed told me that was because he listened to a lot of Psy Trance. Proudly made in Brisbane!! The other track of note is, Dim Image In A Mirror. This track belongs on a soundtrack for a Science Fiction movie, parts of it sound like recordings from outer space. Also there's an unusual drum pattern that sticks out like a sore thumb, interesting nonetheless. To bring all this full circle, The Acid Test EP was the last Hardcore release on Hardline Rekordingz under Mad Max Veritech (the highly underrated Animal Intelligence), in 2003 the label was taken over by Paul Blackout and turned into a dark Drum and Bass label. They even had one Queensland artist on the label: Speaker Wrath. If you want a different interpretation of Industrial Hardcore, Acid and Dark Hardcore, I would recommended this record. This wasn't the last Bioxeed record I bought, I would eventually find out that Bioxeed is the best thing to come out of Sri Lanka since Aravinda De Silva......
