Category: Electro / Industrial / Rock
Album: Dying Light
Blurb: The latest album from Cynical Existence showcases the band’s vigorous songwriting and production style, evolving past the harsh EBM stylings of the past to infuse guitars and more melodious elements.
Category: Industrial / Electronic
Album: Trash Chic
Blurb: Still just as gritty and catchy as his previous outing, En Esch’s latest effort is a more experimental but equally enjoyable album that represents some of his finest production and songwriting yet.
Nine Inch Nails
Album: Not the Actual Events EP
Blurb: While described “an unfriendly, fairly impenetrable record,” with plenty of miasmal, oppressively noisy production to boot, the latest EP from Nine Inch Nails is more of a return to the band’s earlier, more aggressive style than they or the audience may care to admit.
Album: Cherry Blossom EP
Blurb: The second release from the duo of Claus Larsen and John Mirland successfully captures the pure synthpop sound the duo set out to achieve, full of crisp vocals and sweet melodies.
Category: Industrial / Metal
Album: Coming Home
Blurb: As one of metal’s most accomplished and revered producers, the eighth album from Peter Tägtgren’s bombastic industrial/metal project may not reinvent the wheel, but is every bit as flagrant, fiery, feisty, and fun as fans could hope for.
Category: Goth / Industrial / Country
Album: Moonshine and Mascara
Blurb: Celebrating as much as poking fun at country and goth/industrial, Goth Brooks blends the two genres in a manner that should garner a few laughs… but probably not much else.
