Father Worked In Industry (Alpha Matrix)
release date: 2/22/2013
by Scott Hefflon
Second full-length, lots of singles collections, Father Worked In Industry‘s 14 offerings combine the cold distortion of ’90s-style dark industrial with the anthemic synthpop of 2000’s faves like Apoptygma Berzerk, including chillingly beautiful female vocals. Charging and pounding Wumpscut terror filler interspersed with mid-tempo soaring pop. This Norwegian duo appear to have dark humor mixed into their apathetic dronings and cyber rage, and those are the songs that connect the most.
