Finally I tried to go deeper into their discography. Knowing them for years, right after discovering Placebo Effect, but never give enough heart. Shame on me, 'cause it's absolutely brilliant material. If even underrated "Continuum" is very nice at first listen, I wonder how perfect the rest is.
Yup, I had quite long time when I haven't known how to call something between industrial and ebm.. finally I'm learning this whole 'electro-industrial' difference which is quite useful with describing music and not mislabeling it too far.. like, there are tons of music between Front 242 and SPK.
because goth/industrial parties/clubs are all about the current fad nonsense and dont care about actual good stuff, or even want to remember good music from previous years, they just want to play new garbage. its very unlike metal where u listen to something no matter how old it is as long as its good.
its like a whole generation who grew up on Ferris Bueller's Day Off but didn't actually pay attention to the message when he says "if you dont stop to take a breath and look around once in awhile you'll miss it".
Looking forward to the new album! Also, if you like the sound of 'Revelations 23'-era Mentallo be sure to check out the latest release by [artist]Object[/artist], the superb 2 x CD album, [album artist=object]Mechanisms of Faith[/album]. You can listen to previews of the entire album on the [url=http://www.discogs.com/label/Electro+Aggression+Records]Electro Agression Records[/url] BandCamp page [url=http://electroaggressionrecords.bandcamp.com/album/mechanisms-of-faith]HERE[/url], especially the [url=http://electroaggressionrecords.bandcamp.com/track/the-mechanisms-of-faith]TITLE TRACK[/URL]. It really is highly recommended!
@tdriley: I guess maybe work your way backwards. I'm pretty much in love with all of their albums except "Algorythum", I think my favorites would be "Burnt Beyond Recognition", the 2 disc release of "No Rest for the Wicked", "Revelations 23" and "Where Angels Fear to Tread"
@tdriley also check Enlightenment's Bonus CD with extended, reworked versions of the very same tracks, just some steps higher. Russian Roulette and Commandments For The Molecular Age (Sacramental) are pure electronic GEMS.
Hey, you KNOW I been doin' my part, Jodi! :) What disappoints me more than the paltry number of plays is the low number of listeners. Less than 20,000 listeners for one of the most talented electro-industrial acts to have ever existed? Share with your friends people!
