Jacky Meurisse talks about Signal Aout 42

  Signal Aout 42 is a Belgian electronic/EBM project formed in the early 80s by Jacky Meurisse and his schoolmates. In the early days their live performances integrated audio and visual elements in a DIY style. However, SA42 became a more serious project after releasing their first album Pro Patria in 1989. Soon they were recognized as one of the most prominent EBM acts. I finally got the opportunity to interview Jacky after their last…

Meta Meat – “Metameat” album review

Meta Meat – “Metameat” album review

  In these dark days where mutual respect is often replaced by spreading fear and hatred against the unknown, this self-titled album of Meta Meat is kind of the soundtrack to these fast-changing times. How accurate this album is! Phil Von (Co-leader of Von Magnet) and Some Kilos (half of 2 kilos & more and drummer for Von Magnet) worked together on this mutual project called Meta Meat on the labels Ant-Zen and Audiotrauma. Not…

Fatal Casualties – “Filter” album review

Fatal Casualties – “Filter” album review

  I was rather curious to hear Filter after I had reviewed Psalm, over a year ago. I was wondering if this Swedish duo would remain true to their musical expression, and was pleasantly surprised to see they remained experimental indeed. “Home from Home” starts with the King Dude like intro thanks to Stefan, but just before I felt subdued by dark feelings, the track suddenly transforms into the recognizable Fatal Casualties sound, spearheaded by…

Underviewer – “Wonders & Monsters” album review

Underviewer – “Wonders & Monsters” album review

  Are you also longing for that ‘old-school’ Front 242 sound instead of their, nowadays more danceable tunes? Then this album by Underviewer is a must-have. Strangely enough it’s their first album after their formation about 35 years ago. Underviewer can be seen as post-Front 242 with Jean-Luc De Meyer and Patrick Codenys as the pioneers in charge. Starting in 1979 they didn’t even have the chance to bring out any music before becoming full-time…
