If you're reading my blog, then there are good chances that you know about this band (one of the best in industrial metal, in my opinion), and have listened to at least some of their albums from the 2000's. However, this album (2nd full-length one in their discography) is significantly different from all their other releases. It's nowhere near as heavy as their later works, it's rather a mix of depressive rock and Ministry-like early industrial metal. The atmosphere is great, a perfect combination of industrial/dystopian/post-apocalyptic aesthetics and the melancholy of gothic/depressive rock. The two closing tracks are especially remarkable.
