Category: Darkwave / Progressive / Metal
Album: Master of Disguise
Blurb: Despite its adventurous and progressive spirit, the latest from this New York act may be too much a practice in excess and overindulgence for many to take it seriously.
Category: EBM / Electro
Album: Realm of Disorder
Blurb: Treading the same ground as past releases, the latest album from this New England act struggles to exceed any expectations.
Category: Industrial / Noise
Album: A Quiet State
Blurb: Virulently noisy as ever, but with a renewed sense of vitality and orchestral scope, mindFluxFuneral breaks its seven year silence with a highly accomplished album.
Motionless in White
Genre: Gothic / Metal
Blurb: With every album Motionless in White releases, the band seems to be making great progress towards creating its own niche in the music scene, but this album pours a concrete home in the metal genre right now and for years to come.
Mankind is Obsolete
Category: Post-Punk / Electro / Rock
Album: Möbius Loop
Blurb: Well worth the wait since the last album, MKiO strips down the slick production for a more straightforward, no-nonsense, electrified rocker.
Kill the Sleeper
Genre: EBM / Electro
Blurb: Known for his many projects, this one man band’s solo project embraces yet another identity of Kettil Sundberg with the rerelease of what was a demo and now an album.
ASIA featuring John Payne
Category: Progressive / Rock
Album: Recollections (A Tribute to British Prog)
Blurb: A collection of covers in lieu of the new material fans of John Payne have been waiting for, this celebration of Payne’s influences in British progressive/rock seems hardly worth the effort.
