Cubanate “Kolossus” – EP review

  Kolossus is the aptly titled and long-awaited new EP from UK electro-industrial aggressors Cubanate, who released Brutalism (a compilation featuring songs from their first three albums) on Armalyte in 2017. Brutalism coincided with the band reuniting to play the Cold Waves Festival and then a tour with RevCo and Front Line Assembly. Prior to that, their last full-length release was 1998’s Interference. The title track starts off with abrasive synths driven by layers of…

Agent Side Grinder “A/X” – album review

  Agent Side Grinder are back with the new album ‘A/X’. Following on from their eponymous 2008 debut and through to the much more synth based ‘Alkimia’ in 2015, Agent Side Grinder have shown a constant evolution in their sound in their 11 year career and gaining a reputation as being a powerful live band. ‘A/X’ is a very synthy album. ‘Synth wave’ if you’re trying to be cool. And it uses it’s electronic footing…

NERO BELLUM “NFRN°” – album review

NERO BELLUM “NFRN°” – album review

  Nero Bellum (of Industrial-Metal act Psyclon Nine) presents his eponymous solo project. Recorded live over two years, each piece in this collection is an exploration of synthesis in the modular domain. Each piece was improvised, with no overdubs, & without the use of computers in the creative process. The result is ominous, heavily atmospheric, percussive, dark, experimental modular electronica. “We live in a time in which electronic music has become foolproof & ‘perfect’ with…

Jean-Marc Lederman Experience “13 Ghost Stories” – album review

Jean-Marc Lederman Experience “13 Ghost Stories” – album review

  “You come back to Earth, as a ghost, for 24 hours. What do you do?” That’s the simple yet intriguing question asked by Belgian industrial pioneer Jean-Marc Lederman to every vocalist and novelist joining his ’13 Ghost Stories’ project. Would you seek revenge towards those who wronged you? Would you try to fix your own wrongs? Would you seek out a loved one one last time? Maybe you would simply… float? Some responded with…

Machinista “ Anthropocene” – album review

Machinista “ Anthropocene” – album review

  Machinista have returned with third album ‘Anthropocene’. Billed as a dark pop journey, it certainly ticks a lot of the pop boxes along it’s way. Catchy hooks, big choruses and a certain head nodding charm that keeps the listener entertained.  Any release hovering around this genre is always going to attract comparisons to the heavy weights of the genre, which you will notice I am deliberately avoiding in this sentence, but luckily vocal duties…
