Jesu need no introduction for true industrial fans and their latest offering sees them evolve their sound to the next level. The opener/title track has some great drone metal riffs with all sorts of weird electronics flowing underneath the organic instrumentation. In the past they may have had criticism for being repetitive, but I am convinced that this record will keep listeners interested throughout.

The vocals are melodic in a not at all cheesy way and juxtapose nicely against the heaviness and power of the music. The tracks to lookout for on here are `Transfigure' and `Medicine'. I find myself nodding my head throughout as Conqueror is just so damn addictive. One spin of this… Read more

The New Berzerker records attacks you like a mace to the face. From the opening bars of `Eye for An Eye' it's instantly clear that this is no kiddie fuelled nu-metal release. Building upon the catchy songwriting on World Of Lies, main man Luke Kennedy infuses it with his most brutal vocal ambush yet. The clarity of production shines throughout this record and my stand out tracks are `No More Reasons' and `Heavily Medicated'. Basically anyone with a love for guttural vocals, blast beats and meaty riffage should check this out as Animosity is a true homage to early 90's Death Metal.

I'll say this now, if you do not like Tools previous music then you'll find this release hard to absorb. The opening track `Vicarious' starts off with guitar tones reminiscent of `The Patient' before kicking into an anger rant at US society through the eyes of a television. The second track `Jambi' has some amazing percussion and fully utilizes the vast potential of Maynard's vocal chords. `10,000 Days' continues in the classic Tool tradition of flowing samples, particularly in `Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman)' during with a British doctor is talking to a nurse about a damaging and deranged Maynard.

Tool's song writing skills have clearly evolved since writing their previous record… Read more
