Skinny Puppy – hanDover – Review

October 25, 2011

Industrial veterans Skinny Puppy deliver exactly the weird, wonderful sounds one expects on their 14th album. It’s all over the map, and all the better for it.

Informatik – Arena – Review

December 1, 2009

Type O Negative vocals with smooth synths and programming more like New Order than Skinny Puppy, Informatik writes electronic arena rock as well as club hits.

Funker Vogt – War Zone K17 – Review

December 1, 2009

War Zone K17 is a double live CD, and my favorite parts are the songs I already love performed live. To me, the band’s best songs are from the Navigator days.

Skold vs. KMFDM – Review

October 1, 2009

Sasha Konietzko (KMFDM) teams up with Tim Skold (Skold, Marilyn Manson, KMFDM) for a continent-crossing collaboration. Ground rules: No guitars, no drum kits.

Himko – Review

March 1, 2008

Remember Atari Teenage Riot? Maybe heard the movie (soundtrack and kick-ass inspired-by mash-up) Threat? You’ve heard the best of “digital hardcore.”

Sia – Lady Croissant – Review

May 11, 2007

Australian seductress/occasional Zero 7 vocalist Sia should be no stranger to anyone who indulges in the air-y, sensual chillout sort of TV soundtrack ambience.

New Skin – Review

April 20, 2007

So many styles of new wave: Siouxsie & The Banshees, Berlin, and more. Led by gritty guitars, with beats that could be hanging out at any retro club at 2 am.

Air – Pocket Symphony – Review

April 6, 2007

Not everyone will be in the mood to slip under the covers of Pocket Symphony’s sometimes-sleepy atmospheres, especially those looking for booty-shaking.

Tricky Bizzniss – Review

March 12, 2007

Former vocalist of The Crystal Method, Trixie Reiss, and two-time Grammy nominee Ernie Lake. Cheesy dance music so bad I had to shut it off while typing this.

God Head – The Shadow Line – Review

March 2, 2007

God Head toured with Manson, Disturbed, Static-X, Mudvayne, and Rammstein. They were lame then, and they’re lame and half a decade older and no wiser now.

Voltaire – Ooky Spooky – Review

March 1, 2007

Goth is rarely funny intentionally. Voltaire is always a good time, with humorous songs about zombies, dancing skeletons, and all kinds of ghoulish goodness.

Covenant – Skyshaper – Review

November 10, 2006

Highly anticipated as the successor to Northern Light. While not produced by Rammstein producer Jacob Hellner, it shows a return to the roots of their sound.

Regenerator – Disease – Review

November 3, 2006

The songs range between 120-140 BPM, the music is grittier than the previous releases, and a more vibrant blend of electronica, trance, and melody is offered.
