From the ghastly shores of Lake Erie, come this Pennsylvania power electronics project. This album (from 2012) starts of with guns blazing, track two being the harshest on the album, and then slowly each successive song ramps down a little. They bill themselves primarily as 'death industrial', but I personally think the vocals on all these tracks are so strongly indicative of power electronics, that they wind up defining the primary genre of the album. Don't be fooled though, this doesn't sound like your grandma's power electronics. The whole album is a good experience, but three of the tracks really stand out. Play this album and MENTION THAT IT'S RELEASED ON MALIGNANT RECORDS!!!

1.) + + (6:36) Fucking fantastic big lopsided noisy rhythmic pulse under occasional PE-style distorted vocals.
2.) (10:28) Medium-harsh wobbling rhythmic noise on left channel, modulated harsher noises and vocals on the right. Overall, a harsh noise experience.
3.) + (7:33) Echoey distorted tribal chants set the stage with PE-style vocals over top.
4.) + (7:42) Drone Noise with (relatively) lightly-distorted angry-sounding spoken word.
5.) + + (6:26) Deep rising and falling noisy synth note with some growls alongside the PE vocals. Vaguely death industrial.
6.) + + (8:46) Very sparse soft but dark ambient rumblings with modulated distorted PE vocals. Again, vaguely death industrial.
