Wow! This is clearly inspired by Einstürzende Neubauten, both in terms of the wide spectrum of sounds/ styles in general but also the Blixa Barged-like vocalist. Certainly not easily accessible or club friendly, but quite interesting to listening to at ... See full review

I'm a fan of early Agonoize, but lately they've followed in the vein of Hocico and made such boring, generic aggrotechno. Accordingly, I don't care much for the two opening album tracks on this maxi, and Centhron's remix delves even further into trancey ... See full review

Seriously, one of the 10 best EBM albums ever. If you're a fan of Wumpscut or Suicide Commando and don't yet own this masterpiece, it's about time to wake up. This is even more brutal and heavy; rage wrapped up in a carpet and bludgeoned with a medium ... See full review

This album is somewhat reminiscent of early Suicide Commando (before the booming beats were introduced); it's a rather "thin" sound based on cold strings and distorted vocals. Now, the tracks have several years behind them and these days Thoralf has ... See full review

Not his worst, seeing how some of his later releases have been utterly awful. Still, this is a boring album that leaves you numb, it feels like its just one filler after the other, rehashing his tired old themes all over again. Background music, at most.

The first track, "Caught in Your Face", is quite good, with looping beat patterns carrying a melodic string. One small reservation may be the singing; it sounds like he's wearing dental braces or has a lisping speech impediment? So, yeah, maybe not his ... See full review

Industrial..? This is some kind of trite future pop, and not even particularly alternative at that, rather commercial. Some tracks are straight-down embarrassing ("Waste of Skin"), oozing with wannabe vibes.

Another solid release by EAR. Compared with Sleepwalk, this one packs fewer tracks, and they lean more towards multi-layered dark electro-industrial than melodic EBM. Less clubby, perhaps, but then again more hauntingly beautiful and cerebral. Cold ... See full review

"Rebirth" is an awesome intro, so I don't understand why they didn't open with it? (Presumably they'd want to hurl you in media res?) Anyway, in addition to that melodic exercise in control, "Wastelands", "Recurrent Stroke" and "Glowstream" are three ... See full review

It's a funny enough collectible / memento, but as far as music go, this EP has little to offer. "Moral Atrophy (no vox)", "Transcend Humanity", the wumpscut-remix and "End Times" are all instrumental fillers, IMHO. This would leave us with a singular ... See full review
