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 →

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 →

P.H.O.B.O.S – Phlogiston Catharsis (Transcending Obscurity)

My only previous encounter with French industrial death/doom outfit P.H.O.B.O.S was their Triunity split with Blut Aus Nord a few years back, which should at least give you an idea about the kind of headfuck you’re going to encounter here…. Continue Reading →

GoST – Possessor (Blood Music)

I think this is the second or third album by the entity that is GoST but my first encounter, and it is a little hard to tell as there appear to be a whole collection of EPs and stuff online…. Continue Reading →

Arkhe – A (S/R)

Arkhe main man András Nagy has produced some decent black metal with his main band Sear Bliss. So it was intriguing to see how that might translate into another project which promised to be drawn up from a blank sheet…. Continue Reading →

Pronoise – The Border Crossing (SR)

I so often come into this stuff with high hopes of a revelatory experience. When I say ‘this stuff’ I’m referring to pretty much everything that you could include in a massive cross section of sound from Joy Division to… 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 →

Cocksure – TVMALSV (Metropolis)

Well this is a welcome return for a brand new band, yeah I know that doesn’t really make sense but…what we actually have here is Chris Connelly going back to his roots in the band that he was an original… Continue Reading →

Feature & Interview Alt-Fest

There is a clue in the name and Alt-Fest is very much the alternative festival that we in the UK could only have dreamed about a few years ago. It was then that announcements were made telling us about this… Continue Reading →

C.R.O.W.N – Psychurgy (Candlelight)

I’ve grown to hate the term ‘industrial’. Being able to remember the heyday of real industrial when Throbbing Gristle, Chrome and (early) Cabaret Voltaire were the avante-garde, then the dirty mutant metal infected siblings of Ministry, Godflesh or Front Line… Continue Reading →
