This is 20 minutes of horrorscapes and harsh industrial sounds. This is not done in an inaccessible way, however, and the music on SWVMPS II has just the right amount of twisted melody and compositional sense Continue reading
Combining rumbling industrialised dub beats with heavy guitars and no small amount of emotive beauty, the latest Godflesh release is a rusting cyborg constructed from so many clashing parts of pieces that in any other band’s hands it probably wouldn’t work.

This is industrial-tinged metal with a good sound and plenty of professional delivery. Continue reading

Think of the something like Continue reading
Headed up by none other than Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, this is 40 minutes of mostly speed and aggression, just the way we like it.
Kind of taking what Ministry did only ramping it up to the nth degree, this is the sound of an artist unburdened by expectations of past achievements and just plain going for it.
