Category: Noise / Rock / Shoegaze
Album: To the Happy Few
Blurb: The darlings of noise pop return in its original lineup after 20 years, offering up a more mature but no less cacophonous blend of enticing melody.
Category: Industrial / Metal
Album: Subtract Nerve
Blurb: Apocalyptic dirge by way of guttural industrial metal, Concrete Lung’s latest EP is a fine retreading of a familiarly decrepit sound.
Category: Industrial / Black Metal
Album: I Vivi E I Mort
Blurb: While still entrenched in black metal, this Italian act possesses a higher degree of gothic and industrial atmosphere hiding beneath the corpse paint.
Category: Industrial / Alt. Rock
Album: The Sun Comes Out Tonight
Blurb: With a welcome heavier emphasis on the balance of gritty electronics and alt. rock, this latest album from Filter is as angst-ridden and abrasive as ever.
Category: Noise / Industrial / Metal
Blurb: Goregrind and death metal deconstructed and mutated into a vicious, and perhaps thankfully brief, display of digital hardcore violence.
Category: Electro / Industrial
Album: Moments Before the Collapse
Blurb: Orchestral arrangements of furious synths and guitars and distorted vocals evoking life in the impending chaos of the apocalypse make for a darkly engaging if somewhat predictable debut album.
Iron Fist of the Sun
Category: Industrial / Experimental / Ambient
Album: Who Will Help Me Wash My Right Hand
Blurb: An exploration of music as art that can be both interesting and somewhat unsatisfying.
