Let me start by saying it's a new Mnemic album. It's fantastic for that reason alone.
Unfortunately you get the impression this one was written quickly, unlike MSP, which was written and perfected over years.
Michael's vocals have progressed as he seems to of settled into his style and have confidence to try new ideas (Sane Vs. Normal etc.), but alot of the chorus' sound alike.
Anyway, I digress, the songwriting is the flaw on this record. Alot of the originality and fantastic riffs have dissappeared, with most of the tracks coming in at 3-4 minutes long (unlike Tattoos & Zero Gravity from MSP). As for 'Wild Boys'... the least said the better!
Saying that, Deathbox is a new classic, Jack Vegas has a fantastic guitar hook in the chorus. Mindsaver is great too, sounding very like something from MSP. Dreamstate Emergency is good, though sounds very latter day Fear Factory influenced.
All in all, this is a really good album. It just could of been better. I just hope they spend more time on the next one.

I brought Mnemics first album (Mechanical Spin Phenomena) in March of 2004 and i really liked it. So as you may expect i was looking forward to the follow up, the Audio Injected Soul.
And i was not disapointed, i can definately say that there is not a single weak track this album! It starts off with the crushing Dreamstate Emergency, and from that point it tears through uncomprimisingly to the final track, a great cover of Duran Durans Wild Boys.
These guys are the best kept secret in metal at moment, don't think twice, just buy this album!

I was impressed by the first album, but Audio Injected Soul just blew me away, it has a high chance of being my favourite album of 2004.
The band have improved alot on this album, offering a much tighter sound with alot more depth to their music, I believe this album shows what Mnemic is capable of and should gain them critical acclaim.
Listen to this album, you won't regret it!

"The Audio Injected Soul" picks up where "Mechanical Spin Trauma" should have left off, with more melody incorporated, without compromising the brutality or onslaught-nature of the music.
Highly recommended for those with a thirst for driving, heavy metal with a twist.
Buy this album!

This album is a huge let down. I heard several tracks from Mechanical Spin Phenomenon and was blown away by the overall sound of the band, so I rushed off and bought both MSP and this album.
So, what's wrong with it? Well, it's just plain boring. The songs are formulaic in the extreme. Every song has the same structure and uses the same old tricks. Weird sound effects give way to huge crushing verse followed by melodic chorus.
The band have undoubtedly worked hard on their overall image and sound, but this album is, for me at least, a case of style over substance.
