The band stayed right there where they had finished back in 2009, with their Industreatment EP, however this time it’s been more complex, layered and harsher. True cyber industrial death metal HC and core infections. Among their influences one may find an endless row of names, maybe the most significant would be Fear Factory, Meshuggah, Chimaira, early Misery Loves Co., Mnemic, Sybreed, Arkaea and so on. A massive blend of death metal, based on intensive samplers, frequent film-like noises and soliloquys, dialogues, many electro breaks and rending, sharp riffs. If I had been them, I would have given more room for Ricardo and his heavily digitalised parts in order to strengthen the band’s work, however even this way it’s a hard, rigid and mechanical mass which is laying under the themes. The whole disc feels like a complete work, none of the songs may be underlined, at best those could be which contain more of that aforementioned clean sampler – they sound more interesting… Here and there the music takes a metalcore or deathcore-like turn – as some not-so-typical HC-like choirs and schemes emerge, except the basics, as themes like some Napalm Death or Nasum appear. My only problem really is the aforementioned fact, I would have given more free hand to the sampler guru; and this was my theory when I dealt with the latest Sick-Room album too.
It’s a varied and colourful debut with its metallic monstrosity, full of leds, which will surely grant some pleasant minutes to those fans, tuned to industrial death stuff. I don’t proclaim it’s a hell of an album, it’s not even a masterpiece, nor unique. Though this is a hit and grasping material which is reasonable enough to get lost in… here’s a little appetizer from their conception:
