Pre-Existing Conditions (WTII Records)
release date: 9/24/2013
by Mike Delano
The new Rein[Forced] record is called Pre-Existing Conditions, but it’s (frustratingly) not a scathing electro/industrial indictment of Obamacare. Not that there aren’t plenty of other targets for ringleader Jimmy Semtex to spew hate towards, though, like the unnamed subject of the riotous “Nausea.” The album is comprised of remixes from the band’s 2012 release, X Amount of Stab Wounds in the Back, and this reworking of the song by L.A. EBM band Imperative Reaction is even more harrowing than the original.
