Biography

Front Line Assembly is the primary focus of Vancouver-based musician Bill Leeb. A founding member of Skinny Puppy, Leeb moved on to form FLA in 1986 with Michael Balch, releasing some cassettes (since released as Total Terror I & II) which paved the way for their 1987 releases: The Initial Command, State of Mind, and Corrosion. In late 1988, they recorded the mini-LP Disorder, since ... Read more in Amazon's Front Line Assembly Store

FLA returns with some new material but its material that fans should not expect as a standard new release. Unlike a new FLA album, "AirMech" marks as something special in FLA's catalogue, as its the very first time the group have officially released a Soundtrack. Yes, "AirMech" is an OST to an online indie RTS game (Carbon Game's AirMech), the cd also comes with some cool exclusive in-game content to satisfy the craziest of FLA/AirMech fans and the artwork in the booklet is bad ass.

As you can expect from this being an OST, all the tracks here are instrumental and the group this time have dropped the guitars, so anyone expecting the successor to I.E.D. is going to feel under-whelmed and disappointed. However, AirMech is a must listen for any follower of Leeb's music and FLA's side projects.

The music in AirMech just oozes old-school Leeb with lots of EBM rythems and industrial/ambient soundscapes. The bass synth is as loud and pulsing as ever - its used for full effect in tracks like Arise and Pulse Charge. The soundtrack sounds allot like a new Intermix or Noise Unit release for me with the ghostly presence of Rhys Fulber and Chris Peterson material. That said, Leeb, Inkel and Slingerland have been opening and experimenting with new sounds: some tracks have some progressive house melodies (has the band been listening to some Sasha?) and theirs even a faint inclusion of dubstep. It may sound a bit intimating but the whole album does work well together - the tracks are well consistent, the sounds are well layered and the production is top FLA quality.

As AirMech stands: it's a modern revamp of that classic Leeb sound. It shows that Bill hasn't forgotten about his EBM roots in FLA and its another ambitious display of how underrated the Leeb is in the electronic genre. This is a must have and listen for fans.

I've been a die-hard fan of FLA for many years now and as a completest, I bought this album with high hopes, as I do with all their releases. However, I was bitterly disappointed when I played it to find it was a totally instrumental-only soundtrack to a video game. I don't play those games, I think they're a waste-of-life to be honest. When I was a kid (I'm 50 now!) we kids used to play out in the woods from dawn till dusk and have great fun.. not like now, kids are a slave to the computer and 'SOCIAS' networking (?).

What's social about that? Anyway, that's another story-back to this FLA album. The first album I bought by FLA (on vinyl!) was Caustic Grip, wow, what a fantastic album! That got me into their stuff (Nitzer Ebb & Front 242 got me into this genre of music though).

FLA have brought many other superb albums out since 'Caustic' but I'm sorry, this is not one of their great albums. In fact, as a real FLA fan, I would actually say it's a stinker! I listened to it just the once and placed it amongst my collection of FLA albums-it's unlikely that I'll listen to it in the near future, perhaps in 10 years time when I've forgotten how rubbish it is..mind you, at my age, in10 years time, if I'm still on this mortal coil, I will probably prefer opera or classical music (God forbid and Heaven help me if I do!).
I've just ordered the more recent FLA album, cos I do still love the band, so I hope I don't lose faith in the band.
Come on Bill, bring us more of the old FLA stuff!

These reviewers are missing the point 14 Nov. 2012
By Blueoktober - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To those before me stating they are long time FLA fans, I don't believe you. If you were a fan, you'd know that this is a SOUNDTRACK to a VIDEO GAME called AIR MECH. This is not a standard FLA album and this knowledge has been widely available for over a year on Mindphaser.com and many other places.

So yes, they are instrumentals and yes they are ambient because THAT is what they were written to be!

Just in case you long time fans didn't know, FLA is writing a proper FLA album now for a release in early 2013 that will take them back to their early years. There, you've been educated so you will know when the new album comes out and sounds like something from the 80s.

This album is what it is - a musical score for a war game called Air Mech. For that, I give it 5 stars. Easily one of the best video game soundtracks in a long time.

While I am not normally an industrial electronica fan, this album is sweet. It goes perfectly with Airmech too! Not to mention the in-game content that comes with the music...

Take it for what it is, and you will be very pleased 19 Nov. 2012
By Herbert West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review is meant for the casual (or not so casual, but cautious) FLA fan.

Yes, this album is instrumental - anyone who keeps up with the group knew this prior to release. I sampled the album on the Metropolis Records website before purchasing and loved what I heard.

After receiving the cd, I listened to the album several times to see how it compares to FLA's albums from the last ten years or so. I'm happy to report that everything we have come to love about modern-day FLA is here - complex programming, intense atmosphere, and intricate beats. Airmech is literally what it sounds like - The latest FLA album, but without vocals. Personally, I think Airmech contains some of FLA's strongest material to date. The record is so engaging as an instrumental work, that you won't even care there are no vocals. That is, if you pay attention to detail.

Airmech is a unique release among the FLA discography and I'm glad they did something different for a change. At the end of the day, Bill Leeb and company are ever-evolving, accomplished audio engineers, and Airmech pushes their sound to new emotional and synthesized heights. A perfect precursor to the new FLA album out in 2013.

A must have if you are an FLA fan - Airmech is an incredibly deep experience.

it IS a soundtrack 14 Nov. 2012
By Willard - Published on Amazon.com

Another good ambient release from Leeb and associates. And let's be clear, it actually is a soundtrack, to a game of the same name.
