Album Review
Reviewed 2005-10-31
Slow, oppressive, industrial metal with a few doom sounds. Think Godflesh and the Swans with some doom metal thrown in. This is a one-person band from France. Guitars are heavy, rhythms are simple, and there aren’t many vocals and when there are vocals they sound like some troll from a black metal band.
**2. Big, slow, heavy, and oppressive. You can understand the vocals and damn is that a nice growl. The drums and guitar don’t chance much the entire length of the track.
**3. More industrial sounding with obvious noisy drum machine. A bit slower and a much more obvious Godflesh influence. The guitar in the middle of the track a dead ringer for Godflesh. The guitar changes and has more of a doom sound for the last couple of minutes.
**4. Electronics to begin and then doom metal guitar. The guitars are heavy but melodic at the same time. The track is even slower than the first couple. A couple of times during the track there isn’t guitar just lots of industrial noise with almost spoken vocals.
5. Sounds like noise from a factory.
6. Near silent beginning. Slow, fewer vocals, and heavy guitar again similar to Godflesh.
7. Long and the first 4 minutes are sparse noises and no instruments. Then big, heavy slow guitar with a bit more feedback and a bit more metal.
8. Like the rest, slow and heavy. Vocals are spoken.
Wow! -mph
