KMFDM – Hau Ruck – Review

November 3, 2006

It’s mostly a rapid, guitar-drenched onslaught until “Real Thing,” which gives you the seductive and sultry side of Lucia, as opposed to the barks and growls.

The Gathering – Home – Review

September 29, 2006

Anneke’s voice soars above the tinkerings, pulses, and throbs, always sounding vaguely Irish to these ears. The catch in her throat will put a lump in yours.

Acumen Nation – Anticore – Review

September 1, 2006

Always liked the fuck-off attitude of this Chicago band. Part industrial metal, part programming terrorist duckfart, with snarl and skillz to spare.

Zero 7 – The Garden – Review

September 1, 2006

Greatly reducing the rich, sleek, and bottom-end heavy production approach of their past work, the duo have turned in a slightly retro and more uptempo record.

Mordacious – This Emptiness – Review

September 1, 2006

This stuff is called Terror EBM for a reason! This is Mordacious’ third full-length, got 14 tracks of distorted vocals, dancefloor beats, and scary synths.

Grigori 3 – Exile – Review

September 1, 2006

Chicago female-fronted Goth/industrial band on Dark Star. Part sexy cooing, part banshee wailing, part lush synths, part crunching guitars. Never a dull moment.

Goldfrapp – Supernature – Review

August 25, 2006

Goldfrapp were able to create a luscious universe without resorting to cheap 4/4 disco beats, but on Supernature, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything but.

PIG – Pigmata – Review

June 9, 2006

Raymond Watts of KMFDM glory creates another industrial rock-laden opus, which spits raw energy from the get-go.

Funker Vogt – Navigator – Review

May 26, 2006

As usual, the music is formulaic, but with every album, you’re never let down. The vocals continue to evolve into a cleaner sound, and the production is superb.

Entwine – diEversity – Review

February 24, 2006

Sad rock/Goth rock with keys, guitar chugging (without being doom, or remotely close), this is full-bodied melodic, moody rock with a passionate vocalist.

Accessory – Titan – Review

January 20, 2006

A cleaner electro style fused with hard EBM, but lacks noise-driven floor-pounders. “One Night” might be one of the most sexually-charged EBM songs ever.
