Review: LOKO5T4R - Mexican Devil

Gritty and industrial through and through, this crashing and booming release filled with metallic clanging drum machine punches and gritty pulsing arpeggiators never looses it's bombastic energy all the way throughout the 45+ minutes of aggro industrial madness that is LOKO5T4R's 2017 album "Mexican Devil". Snares as crisp and distorted as you can pleasurably get them answer equally saturated and intense machine-like kick, propelling most tracks forward in true industrial march fashion. Harsh and rapidly delivered vocals, which focus on intensity and strength instead of raw processing (not that there isn't processing, it's just the vocals feel like they derive a lot of strength naturally, an

Esoteric Review #01: G. D. Laval - Black Magick Evocation of the Shem Ha Mephorash

G. D. Laval's "Black Magick Evocation of the Shem Ha Mephorash" is quite the exquisite modern Grimoire, which packs a complete system of Goetic magick which can be used to summon the fractured disembodied intelligences that make up the greater Shem Ha Mephorash system. The Shem Ha Mephorash itself is the supposed sacred name of god embodied within a particular passage of the Bible. Derived from the text using advanced Gematria (a Hebrew practice of using numerology to find esoteric correspondences between different words and concepts, as well as used to sharpen the mind and create complicated ciphers and hidden text such as this name itself), this name is broken into 72 three letter seals, w

Review: Droid Sector Decay - National Union Of World Murders EP

Staring off with a thick dull blast of a beat, only to move to a far more frantic and aggressive monster filled with a variety of different distortion scrapes, overdriven percussion, and low pulsing synth basslines, the intensity never subsides in the early moments of this release. Keeping the rhythmic noise formula consistent throughout most of this release, but adding a variety of different paces (ranging from mid-tempo noisy and groovy beats to rather quick and violent sounding noisecapes) and instrumentation (from low drones, to hollow bells, clanging of metal pipes to the whine of guitar feedback, and so much more) to the mix to keep things interesting, this album solidly manages to kee

Whatever you feel comfortable with, but name, age, and where you live would be pretty standard? My name’s Benjamin Power. I’m a somewhat unexpected 32 year old musician. I live in sunny Harwich, in the South-East of the UK, ‘round about where sea meets dirt. How do you enjoy where you live? Is there a vibrant music community where you are? Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity? Oh Lord, the horror. It’s often hard to fully enunciate the dubious anti-joys of my floundering

Review: Schwefelgelb - Den Umgekehrten Atem

Hard hitting leaving you ready to rock your head and stomp your feet, "Den Umgekehrten Atem" is a perfect example of how to craft some excellent old school sounding Industrial Techno grooves. Packed into this short release is nothing but high energy electronics meant to keep the pace moving. This small but powerful extended play is packed from beginning to end with stylistic grace, crisp mixing, and a solid balance between repetition and transition. Rhythm and bass dominate the majority of the tracks, but they do so to great effectiveness, creating a sense of urgency with minimal ingredients necessary, which fuels the liveliness present on this release from beginning to end. Despite the shor

Would you say you find that your local scene influences your attitude and/or creativity? There is no local scene where i live but it is a beautiful place, an island with warm climate most of the year and people here prefer to listen to Gr

Review: klack - Do You Klack?

Old school through and through, this short but sweet EP of electronic body music manages to fuse two sides of the 80s that walked similar lines but had different attitudes and approaches. Bringing the sweet serene sounds of new wave, filled with sparkling leads and huge tom rolls that'll get your heart beating, to the dancefloor smashing hard edged grooves of EBM, pounding with thick and juicy arpeggiators and four to the floor crashing and pounding drums, klack does the renewed Industrial and EBM community a favor by showing the crowd how to masterfully transition melody and beat. Adding to the sound is a mixture of funk groove and enthusiasm and industrial tendency towards infectiously rep

Review: Trevor Something - Death Dream

Moody and groovy, this slick washed out affair of tranquil indietronica is an excellent presentation of what the best of the many genres it touches upon has to offer. Moving through the echoey chambers of warehouse electronic music, only to dance through the halls of indie rock, finishing with a somber saunter through the dark atmospheres of industrial synthwave, this eclectic artist manages to keep the album cohesive with consistently smooth and reverbent vocals that just ooze a captivatingly enigmatic appeal. Calculatedly atmospheric, and decisively underground sound, in that lo-fi way you'd find all to prevalent in the Indie Rock scene, with loud reverb and long delays stretching the musi

Review: PERTURBATOR - New Model

Glittering and bubbling it's way into a smooth crescendo, the deceptively serene atmospheres that start the album don't adequately prepare you for the dark and heavy sonic expressions that present themselves throughout the majority of the album. Fusing nostalgically crisp and crunchy analog sounds of Synthwave with the aggression and intensity found in modern Industrial Dance music, PERTURBATOR truly have expertly synthesized an amalgamation of sounds I've been searching to hear packaged together so perfectly for a while now. Fisting you in the face with the power of modern drum machines pushed and pumped to their fattest potential to create sounds that the early musicians of the 80s, that t
