Category: Classical / Progressive
Album: Todmorden 513 – Concerto for Orchestra
Blurb: A fine example of the translatability of music from one genre or form to another, Markus Reuter’s latest concerto takes the listener on a long but fulfilling journey.
Category: Industrial / Metal
Album: A Collection of Lies
Blurb: As blasphemous and as heavy as ever, Society 1 returns with a collection of unreleased tracks to stave off the fans waiting for new material.
Category: Electro / EBM / Industrial
Blurb: While not as guitar-heavy or as experimental as past Steril albums, the band sticks to what it does best and delivers a hard-hitting EBM album perfect for any dance floor.
Die So Fluid
Category: Rock / Goth
Album: The Opposites of Light
Blurb: Moving into a new level of musicianship and experimentation, Die So Fluid’s fourth album proves to be the band’s most accomplished and most adventurous outing yet.
Category: Progressive / Rock
Blurb: Presenting fine musicianship, catchy songwriting, and a relaxed atmosphere in equal measure, the latest album from ASIA falls just short of brilliance, but still offers no small amount of satisfaction.
Category: Black Metal / Industrial / Experimental
Album: Dirty Remix
Blurb: As visceral and as violent as any in this Italian act’s past releases, this remix companion emphasizes Aborym’s more electronic and industrial aspects without sacrificing any of the extreme metal intensity.
Category: Electro / EBM
Album: Into Bronze
Blurb: While showing improvement in craft and production, this latest effort from Espermachine hardly rises above the conventions of its established genre, making it worth little more than a casual listen.
