- 1920.00 [flatline : 1999]
10 years and noisex is still interesting, this time with a slightly softer
release [definitely not to say it's for the light hearted!] with some
of his best sounds and material to date. this industrial album is a must
for anyone striving for that something a little bit different.
- standing [dependent : 2000]
taken from the empires album, here are a couple of great remixes of standing,
danceable and darker. the b-side "radiusē" is a nice musical number, but
the real highlight of this single is the 8 minute "crunchier" version
of standing, great for the dance floors!
fusion - patient zero [bloodline : 2000]
one of the more invigorating albums i've heard in a while. lots of classic
industrial - ebm elements with controlled fusion's own consistent flavour.
guest vocals done by dennis ostermann [in strict confidence] and fabricio
viscardi [aghast view & biopsy] puts some new life into a great sound.
- der leiermann [dependent : 2000]
wow! a truly monotone and morbid expression; this single is the un-translated
german version of "like tears in rain" from the best selling album "united
states of mind" and the feel properly captures the true emotion of what
the lyrics was originally written about. surprisingly with it's hard &
irregular industrial dance beat, this song makes great dance floor fodder
workers foundation - in the whirlpool [pendragon : 1999]
beautifully arranged sounds to form intricate patterns. founded by paolo
favati [of the legendary italian industrialist pankow], a wide variety
of natural and synthetic sounds, this italian band deserves more credit
than their name gives them.
