3.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Foretaste of Heaven?, 18 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Golden Foretaste of Heaven (Audio CD)
I first discovered Alec Empire with his album Intelligence and Sacrifice. That album for me defined industrial metal with brutal electronics, throat wrenching lyrics, and destructive sounds. TGFOH could not be further from this. Alec Empire has walked away from digital hardcore to a softer, gentler, more easy listening form of the electronic art. Drum machines and soft sythns are here in plenty with more mediocre melody than The Sisters of Mercy could ever aspire to. Its not that this is a bad record, there are certainly interesting movements within the track. Its more that there is nothing to get excited about either. Buy this album if you love drum machines and electronica mixed with post punk.
