Format: Audio CD
Though best remembered for his work with German Digital Hardcore legends Atari Teenage Riot, Empire has wasted no time in the years that have followed pursuing his own noise-ridden vision of what he believes constitutes 'rock' music.
Issued in 2005, 'Futurist' sees Empire embrace his punk roots whlie at the same time retaining his interest in electronica (courtesy of former ATR renagade Nic Endo).
The sheer force of this album is, frankly, awe-inspiring as Empire lets rip on track after track of blazing, no holds barred electro-punk, every track a call to arms that signifies Empire's refusal to bow down to 'the man'.
With the exception of Nic Endo's subtle electronic sheen which glides in and around Empire's socio/political rage anthems, all instruments are played by Empire himself.
The production is immense, Empire's densely layered riffs and no-nonsense, monotone drum patterns rammed home with brute force, while Endo's electronic murmurings help lend the album a certain texture, creating an ambience which gives the album much of it's menace.
In short, an iconic album from one the last true renegades on the scene, or to put it another way, one of the most powerful rock albums this side of 'Nevermind', yeah, THAT good. Try it.

A bit of a shock, but it is signature Alec Empire! 20 Oct. 2006
By Troy L. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I got Alec Empire's new cd, The Futurist, I was shocked that it was full of guitars and not the usual "sampled guitars" and uber-heavy distorted electronic beats I love Digital Hardcore for. But, after a second listen, I am hooked to this CD!! The stand out tracks for me are Kiss of Death (#1) and Vertigo (#6). If you are sick and tired of the cliched punk scene and the every growing boring electronic scene, check out The Futurist. Trust me, you will see the future and it doesn't look all that good! At least you can thrash to it with impunity!
