The songs on this, 8 track, album hearken back to the EBM/Industrial scene of the early 2000’s. (I can hear a lot of influence from Nitzer Ebb and Frontline Assembly and Liabach). Songs such as ‘The Hurt‘ and ‘Nothing You‘ come at you straight from the beating heart of those glorious days. It’s wondrous. It’s glorious. It’s practically […]
