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.

Morpheus Sister – Review

September 1, 1995

A dose of heavier than usual techno-industrial programming with dark lyrics. A lighter version of Big Catholic Guilt that leans towards Front Line Assembly.

Fracture – Proper Burial – Review

September 1, 1995

Aggressive beats, distorted vocals, and plenty of electronics. There’s something that makes them rise to the top. Their samples are creative and interesting.

Foetus – Nail – Review

September 1, 1995

Nail explored the extremes that Hole hinted at, with classical samples, jarring noises of scraping metal and human pain, and guitar blasts.

Foetus – Hole – Review

September 1, 1995

Using electronic percussion, sheet metal, and pop culture destruction, Jim Thirwell produced an album as humorous as it was self-destructively nihilistic.

Veil of Thorns – Review

June 1, 1995

A melodic industrial swipe at your sensibilities. This is an advance, and I’d like to hear the whole album.

The Moors – Review

June 1, 1995

Finally! Good pagan music! A Dead Can Dance influence, full of crescent moons, glens, satyrs, nymphs, a cloudless night and a coven of thirteen. Beautiful.

Peter Murphy – Cascade – Review

June 1, 1995

Cascade finds pouty Pete gargling on his customary elixir of abject despair, albeit with more sensual atmospheres and textures than his previous albums.

Die Krupps – Rings of Steel – Review

June 1, 1995

Maybe Die Krupps’ vision is still pertinent in 1995 because some of the tracks have the magic. Most don’t ,and should have been admired as stepping stones.

Foetus – Null – Review

May 1, 1995

Foetus albums have always been better when they’ve had space to develop; this EP is no exception. Good as these songs are, the full-length Gash is better.
