[Listen] Animal Bodies – High Slopes of Terror

animal bodies

Animal Bodies are an electro punk duo (naturally) with a taste for the macabre. “High Slopes of Terror” is a fast tempo, synth-heavy slice of dark wave, with some krautrock and goth thrown into the mix. The growling, distant vocals will give you the willies.

[Listen] Egyptrixx – Transfer of Energy

No Comments 21 November 2014

A decidedly unsettling chunk of industrial techno from Egyptrixx. We’re guessing it’s the sound of things to come as the Toronto producer prepares to release a new album in 2015.

Edmonton, again. Yes, it’s a weird town, and here’s something else to prove it. Or maybe you’d call “Creatures of Habit” just another dystopian goth punk sing-along?

Like nothing you have ever heard. Tanya Tagaq combines Inuit throat singing with modern experimental and industrial electronica. “Uja” is from her current album ‘Animism’.

[Listen/Download] Miracles of Modern Science- Eating Me Alive

No Comments 16 September 2011

I posted about Miracles of Modern Science a while ago last year. Well, their debut LP is coming out this fall! Check out a sneak peek in the track Eating Me Alive, bringing back some of the orchestral playfulness that made me fall in love with them in the first place. I love the interplay between vocal melody and instruments. Although I hope my spleen doesn’t make noise.

World Music Wednesday! Rammstein: Why Metal Should Always Be Sung in German

No Comments 26 January 2011

By Sweet Sound of Sunrise

An airshow disaster seems to be an odd event to name a band after, but that’s what a band formerly known as Ramstein-Flugschau got their name. You would know them better as Rammstein.

Formed in Berlin in 1993, Rammstein is a pioneer of the Neue Deutsche Härte, genre of music that mixes techno into a mix of hard rock and metal. This combination, combined with a reputation for elaborate, pyrotechnic-heavy live shows, has made the band famous throughout Germany and many countries all over Europe.

Band members Till Lindemann, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul H. Landers, Oliver Riedel, Christoph Schneider, and Christian Lorenz remain in the same lineup from the band’s inception almost 20 years ago. Their popularity has extended beyond the continent, too. “Du Hast” is likely their most famous song in North America, after being featured on the sountrack for the movie The Matrix.

[Listen/Download] Opir- A Graveyard of Elephants

No Comments 27 December 2010

by Tiana Feng

Oh man, this is probably one of the creepiest sounding tracks I have ever heard in my headphones (and been sent) yet I couldn’t stop listening to it. It has deep political roots and Opir explains this on his blog here. I’m not sure how to describe the track. It’s a sort of electronic, industrial sorta hardcore track. I hope I have made you a bit curious enough to listen!

[Watch/Download] Tricil- The Emancipation

No Comments 02 October 2010

by Tiana Feng

There’s something about electronic artist Tricil that I really dig, especially the mix of industrial sounds into his music. This track Emancipation I’ve been listening to on repeat for an hour now. I love the tension and release points of the track. Something completely instrumental, yet there’s tons of things going on so you never get bored. The music video is about all the things and broken dolls we seem to leave in our attic and forget about.
