Skinny Puppy - Handover

So while I was out of the blogging biz for a bit, Skinny Puppy unleashed a monster upon the unsuspecting populace once again.
This is a fantastic album for fans and a decent jumping on point for newcomers (though I would recommend 2004's The Greater Wrong of the Right as a better place to start as its a bit more accessible)


Ogre, Cevin...take it away

A forgotten oldie...

I rediscovered today's album the other day and couldn't believe I had forgotten about it. The sad part of it is that when I tried to add it to my facebook profile it automatically links it to a Melvins album of the same name.

Has the world truly forgotten about Prick?

Support this guy, he really deserves it

Apologies for absense and Komor Kommando - Das EP

Sorry for not posting in a bit, had a financial crisis.

Anywho, I'm back and today we're checking out an effort from Sebastian Komor (Of Zombie Girl and Icon of Coil). This man has talent to spare to say the least and this release definitely shows it. You can get Komor Kommando - Das EP from the Fixt records webstore or from Itunes for pretty cheap and its absolutely worth it.

Nitzer Ebb - Industrial Complex

So, I'm a bit behind on this one, but holy hell its a good one.

One of the pioneers of the EBM genre returned this year with their first studio album in 15 years. And rest assured boys and girls: Nitzer Ebb has certainly not lost their edge. From front to back, this is a great release that holds on the the classic Ebb feeling, but with a modern twist. As I usually try to do, I'll let the music stand on its own:

Peter Christopherson (1955-2010)

Sadly, today I report the death of one of industrial music's founders and an artistic innovator like no other.
Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson passed on in his sleep last night.

RIP Peter, I hope you and John are reunited on the other side.

Unheilig - Grosse Freiheit

Today we look at something a bit more chill than the last couple suggestions.

Unheilig doesn't get a lot of recognition stateside, but they absolutely should. Der Graf's haunting vocals will stir your emotions even if you don't speak German and for those of us that understand what's going on its even more powerful. That's not to say that these guys can't rock when they want to either, their melodic style lends itself well to their heavier entries.
Their newest album, entitled Grosse Freiheit (Great Freedom)is another in a line of awesome releases and I hope further proof that they can keep this up for a long time to come.
Some examples:

Cyanotic - The Medication Generation

Today's recommendation comes to us from Cyanotic and the thundering havoc of their new album: The Medication Generation.  You can probably guess from the title what the lyrical theme is all about. This is an earthshaker of an album filled with quick beats and great guitar hooks layered with the synth sound we all know and love. Here's a taste:
