Download – Furnace – Review

December 1, 1995

Furnace is sinister, menacing, and not afraid to grab your neck and hurl you through a window of perception in hopes that you’ll cut your line of sight.

Battery – nV – Review

November 1, 1995

Memories of a more Gothic Black Sabbath, with statuesque, not comic book, morbidity. Battery have heart, but the album lacks the twists to keep it interesting.

Terminal Sect – Gun Worship – Review

November 1, 1995

An industrial band straight out of the late ’80s, a deviant of the Front 24/Skinny Puppy era before Wax Trax! bands learned to shut up and play their guitars.

Psykosonik – Unlearn – Review

November 1, 1995

Subdued Goth techno. Tries to be new-agey like Enigma, but comes off sounding unconvincing. It gets your toe tapping at times, but it’s forgettable.

Nature – Review

October 1, 1995

Electro-industrial concerning James Bond, Justine Bateman, the Marquis de Sade, Russ Meyer films, and serial murders. The singer sounds too much like Axl Rose.

Sun God – EFA – Review

October 1, 1995

The album EFA takes you right to the active volcano’s orifice, smears ritual body paint all over you, and prepares you to make a human offering to the Sun God.

Ipecac Loop – Ex – Review

October 1, 1995

Almost entirely instrumental, using synths and sampling to create an evil, eerie, Middle Eastern-type motif. Capable of inspiring more maleficence than Slayer.

Club 69 – Adults Only – Review

October 1, 1995

I was surprised to find the album chock full of innuendo and double entendre, leaving the crudeness for those who can’t express themselves in any other way.

Birmingham 6 – Policestate – Review

October 1, 1995

4 remixes of “Policestate,” 2 covers of KMFDM’s “Godlike,” and a marching anthem “Birmingham 6.” The remixes vary from electro/industrial to frantic techno.
