Anenzephalia – Projected Void

B. Moloch has been involved in the industrial music scene for many years now. He was one of the very first artist signed to the Tesco label, has been backed by and contributed to Genocide Organ and more recently been one half of Dogpop. His pedigree is without question. If you’ve been a fan of the genre in the past 15 or so years you know Anenzephalia. If you’re unfamiliar, go out and grab everything you can get your hands on.

Side A begins with “Turn The Tide”. It’s heavy with samples, fucked-up filtered vocals and a steady metallic crunch. My only real complaint is the track focuses on high end and mid range sounds with little to no low end throb. That gets remedied on Side B’s “Daymare”. It’s looped synth noise, echoing throb and strange spoken word vocal delivery. More minimal and ambient than the previous, but is definitely my favorite of the two.

This release is probably less than orgasmic for fans of classic Anenzephalia longing for days gone by, but it’s better than most of the shite out there passing itself off as industrial. It’s also a good whistle-wetter until the next full-length comes around. Limited to 300.

Review stolen from Plaguehaus.
