Hocico – Artificial Extinction (Out Of Line)

Back in the early 90s I was kind of isolated, walled in by the twin guard dogs of little if any money and pernicious mental health issues. Whilst I maintained a toe hold in my constant metal world, for reasons… Continue Reading →

3Teeth – Metawar (Century Media)

If nothing else this album showed me how out of the loop I am, and not just with ‘industrial’. We’ll get to that in a while though. Righty. 3teeth are an LA industrial band currently touring with Ministry and just… Continue Reading →

Cubanate – Kolossus (Armalyte Industries)

I’d been listening to <Pig> a few days before this dropped into the review lists so this seemed like a sign; same label and all. “Cubanate?!” I thought, “Are they still going?” Well, no, a return to the machine after… Continue Reading →

Taina – Seelenfresser (Viy Records)

There is a train of thought that suggests that Germans are incredibly efficient. Taina clearly missed that meeting, as it’s taken roughly 8 years to release their debut album. Formed in 2010 by vocalist/synth player WoLand and guitarist SerZh the… Continue Reading →

Carpenter Brut + Youth Code – London Koko 23/3/18

New types of music are needed even if they hark back to the past, synthwave is officially a thing now and boy is it big. If you grew up on a diet of horror, action and post-apocalyptic films many of… Continue Reading →

Marc Heal – The Hum (Armalyte Industries)

Ah Cubanate, remember them well. I still have 1st of the four albums they released Antimatter (1993) knocking around on cassette and caught them live on quite a few occasions. If their music doesn’t stick around particularly in your memory,… Continue Reading →

Dawn Of Ashes – Theophany (Metropolis)

My first mission in regards to this album was figuring out who actually plays on it. Has the band reformed, as they had apparently disbanded a couple years ago, or is it a solo album by vocalist Kristof Bathory with… Continue Reading →

Braindance – Master Of Disguise (Dr Music)

There’s a lot to digest here and that is not surprising as this album has apparently been a decade in the making. First we linger on the strange embossed sigils (taken apparently from over 60 alphabets) on the album artwork… Continue Reading →

Die Krupps – V Metal Machine Music (SPV)

Considering these Germans industrialists have been around since 1980, actual studio albums are quite a rare occurrence for them. Sure there have been stacks of releases such as singles, EP’s, compilations and anthologies such as the excellent 2007 Too Much… Continue Reading →

Primitive Race – S/T (Metropolis Music)

I had a primitive race once; kid at infant school tripped me over and broke my egg so I battered him round the head with my wooden spoon. The judge said as I was in my 20’s this was particularly… Continue Reading →

PreEmptive Strike 0.1 – Pierce Their Husks (Sonic Hell Records)

Warning, rampaging insects invading the cyber industrial zone! It would appear that PreEmptive Strike 0.1 have a bit of an infatuation with the Robert Heinlein penned classic Starship Troopers. It could be this or any other 50s B Movie feature… Continue Reading →

Revolting Cocks – Live! You Goddamned Son Of a Bitch (Wienerworld)

As far as I am concerned this is absolutely a seminal live album and one that’s up there alongside Ministry ‘In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up.’ There are quite a few parallels between the two, as line ups… Continue Reading →
