Studies For A Vortex

tobias_rieper Nicely varied heavy industrial. I like everything about it, bar the clean vocals - they lack oomph. Last bit of the 2nd track sounds like Mick Gordon's Doom soundtrack. 4th track is a sub-bass drone that could go on much longer. "Biomorphic horror" sounds excellent and puts me on edge - another track that is inexplicably short. Some noisy elements but they never take over. Favorite track: Metabunker.

Cody Drasser A fluid amalgamation of styles ranging from death industrial, dark ambient, power electronics, dark cabaret and more make this a thrillingly dark and noir-ish journey. Think along the lines of a stripped down version of Ulver's "Perdition City" meets Deutsch Nepal's later catalogue output and you might develop an insight into what awaits you within this frightened, drug-crazed and scarred maze of an album. Compellingly unique. Favorite track: Magnetoesthetics.

mipsen One of the most intense and involving songs in 10 years! Thank you! Well known story very well arranged. The suspension of the original story transported into music. Amazing! Favorite track: Gorgoneion.

As a founding member of the now defunct Sektor 304 and a major contributor to Beyond Enclosure, Andre Coelho is no stranger to the Malignant roster, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him back with his brand-new project, Metadevice. For those familiar with his previous work, you’ll recognize a lot of the same traits and characteristics: assemblages of bruising musicality, as fed through a cacophony of factory dirge, alienating drones and insectile frequencies, often with distorted rhythms and resonating clangs, and vocals that range from spoken word to more aggressive and in your face. No matter the project, Andre has always managed to tap into an authentically old school industrial sound, and Metadevice is no exception. A must For fans of IRM, Einsturzende Neubauten, STROM.ec
