So now much hyped DJ Ivan Smagghe has officially left Black Strobe, it was to fear this long-awaited debut would not have the same appeal as all those glorious singles that made their reputation. In fact, "BYOC" showcases, if needed, that the whole Black Strobe concept was then and still is now at the core of one man's only mind: Arnaud Rebotini, who decided it was time for his act to get more physical and less club-friendly. Therefore, Black Strobe's current incarnation is a powerful live quartet which occasionally verges on the previous electronic soundings of earlier releases. Smagghe's input on "BYOC", as it was completed before his departure, seems to have "only" consisted in writing lyrics for 7 out of the 9 vocal tracks featured here, and further proof of that is he's not credited as part of the band itself.

If the instrumental overture "Brenn Di Ega Kjerke" (the album's title in Norwegian) or "Buzz Buzz Buzz" recall early stuff like "Innerstrings" or "Italian Fireflies", it's clear here that the purpose has a more organic feel to it, even though Rebotini's songwriting influences still verge more on Depeche Mode and EBM acts such as Nitzer Ebb or Fad Gadget, than on the average rock act's inspiration sources. As an example, next single "I'm A Man", a radical reworking of Bo Diddley's classic, is such a strong electro-rock stomper that next to it, Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" almost sounds like Chris Isaak ! But it's not all full bloom experience for our ears here; two delicate numbers, "Girl Next Door" and the exquisite "Lady 13", suggest there must be a heart beating behind the black leather imagery of this all. On the most muscular songs ("Blood Shot Eyes", "You Should Be"), though, Black Strobe sound a lot like Rammstein fronted by Valor, the voice out of Christian Death.

Format: Audio CD
The French and music. Go together about as well as the French and soap. Or the French and not running away. The honourable exemption clause was always granted to Trust, but beyond that, it's been a scary place, unpopulated by talent. But here's Black Strobe, and their industrially inclined klang dance rock to challenge my preconceptions.

Don't be fooled by the title, unless you want to annoy some black metallers by buying them a gift, for having an opening track called 'Brenn Di Ega Kjerke' (Norwegian for 'Burn Your Own Church') is, I believe, indicative of a sense of humour. Not something that industrial music is known for. At least not deliberately, Revolting Cocks aside.

Once you're into the album proper, it's like a Davy Jones locker of the music world, as Black Strobe seem to have spent their time pilfering huge wodges of other peoples music. However, they have had the common courtesy to then twist it into a hulking great mess of their own making. And I mean that in a good way, for when it is good, it's very, very good. Yes, they're doing the whole Front 242 / Young Gods thing, but with some rather splendid twists and turns, aided by remixer Alan Moulder, a man who has survived working with the Jesus and Mary Chain, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. A man to whom the denizens of the dark, across the world should be raising statues to. If you could persuade them to come out of their basements.

Another thing I've never associated with the French is a sense of humour. I mean, come on, Jacques Tati? But if this lot aren't extracting huge quantities of urine with every beat then they need to be locked away somewhere very secure.

A departure from their original sound and a little disappointing 16 Sept. 2007
By Steward Willons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My introduction to Black Strobe was through the nearly perfect "Chemical Sweet Girl" EP. I'm a huge fan of their combination of vintage 80s synths and a very dark, aggressive sound. My least favorite thing about Black Strobe is definitely Arnaud Rebotini's voice. However, my favorite thing about Black Strobe is Arnaud Rebotini's compositions.

Unfortunately, Burn Your Own Church is basically a showcase for Rebotini as the front man of a rock quartet. The songs are enjoyable enough, but his vocal work really brings them down a few notches and at times makes them somewhat annoying. The album retains the dark, aggressive sound, but with the synthesizers being replaced by guitars.

In my view, this is a major bummer. The 80s synth sounds were the defining characteristic of Black Strobe and as nice as it is that Rebotini wants us to know he's multidimensional, removing the synths also removes the essence. He as, in effect, turned Black Strobe into a rather ordinary rock quartet with a woefully inadequate vocalist.

There are few tracks that remind us what Black Strobe used to be and at times Rebotini's new direction works. Here I'm thinking of his cover of "I'm a Man". Other songs like "Shining Bright Star" would be awesome if Rebotini had a better voice or wrote better lyrics. It's not really even his Franglais delivery that irritates me - it's more basic things like intonation and depth.

It's a decent album and if you loved their previous material, this is worth picking up. I've said it's like an average rock quartet and I don't quite mean it literally. You can still tell it's electronic and it's still got an edge over a typical pop record, but it IS a departure from "Me and Madonna" or "Chemical Sweet Girl". If you're picking your first Black Strobe album, choose the Chemical Sweet Girl EP instead.
Blackstrobe - Burn Your Own Church 21 Oct. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though I wish Arnaud Rebotini would return to his Zend Avesta project, Blackstrobe really isn't too terrible. Sure, BURN YOUR OWN CHURCH, shows off its rock swagger and axe-grinding right away with "Brenn Di Ega Kjerke." The darkness continues on "Shining Bright Star," with Rebotini's vocals channeling the Sisters of Mercy, and the angry electro-grind pounds its way into "Blood Shot Eyes." The country-rock-blues of "I'm A Man" actually is quite a bit of fun, even if Alabama 3 got there first. The combination of electronics and black metal has always been an uneasy one, and even if Blackstrobe can't pull it off 100% ("Last Club On Earth," for instance, goes on a bit too long without coming to a head; "Crave For Speed" grinds away by doesn't go anywhere), they put in a darn good effort. The electronics on "Buzz Buzz Buzz" are quite catchy and perhaps shows Rebotini where his strengths really lie.
