Motionless In White Reveals ‘Infamous’ CD Release Art

Motionless-in-white-infamous-CDart

Motionless In White has unveiled the cover art for their highly anticipated forthcoming full-length Infamous, set for release on November 13, 2012.

In the two years since the release of acclaimed debut Creatures, Motionless In White has constantly challenged the concept of “playing it safe”. Unafraid to make music as intense as it is intricate, their ability to interweave powerful lyrics and strong musicianship with striking imagery that has captivated both fans and media … Continue reading

Music Review: Marilyn Manson – Smells Like Children

smells-like-children-marilyn-manson-CD-cover

What can you say about this early Marilyn Manson release? It’s quite bizarre and angry. In the style of a mash-up of weird sound FX segments and garbled voce tracks, “Smells Like Children” uses the art of segueing from one piece of garbage gargle into the next with what sounds like a way to experiment with different off-beat ideas and recordings (I’m really tempted at this point to add the obvious “Smells like crap” … Continue reading

Music Review: Alice Cooper – From the Inside

Alice-Cooper-From-The-Inside

Alice Cooper’s release titled “From the Inside” stands as one of my favorite release from the Cooper camp. This particular theme-centered release depicts Alice’s life as he imagined it during his alcoholism stay at the New York sanitarium . The release also managed to earn him a billboard hit with the love ballad “How You Gonna See Me Now”. The album later was realized in the form of a Marvel comic single 1 off … Continue reading

Music Review: Alice Cooper – Goes to Hell

alice_cooper-goes_to_hell

Released in 1976, this album was intended as a sequel follow up to “Welcome to My Nightmare”, taking on the idea of a theme album again. The release went gold with a few successful tunes coming off its debut. A planned tour though ended up being canceled due to Alice’s bout with anemia. The release featured producer Bob Ezrin providing his handy work to a more polished studio release for the Alice Cooper band. … Continue reading

Music Review: Alice Cooper – Welcome 2 My Nightmare (2011)

AliceCooper-Welcome-II-my-Nightmare

I’ve always been a pretty solid Alice Cooper fan. Though I will confess that my loyalty lies more in the earlier edgier releases of the 70′s. They were inventive, strange, and melodically creepy. A perfect union of horror and music. Alice has always been the iconic superhero of horror rock. In later years, I lost my rush as he became closer to 80′s metal, with cheesy lyrics and a band who seemed more like … Continue reading

Music Review: Aesthetic Perfection – All Beauty Destroyed

AP

Given that A Violent Emotion quickly became a staple and almost immediate classic of the aggrotech scene, AP has a high bar to step up to. Overall, I think All Beauty Destroyed is an okay followup, but is too focused on playing it safe vocally while buying into worn out tropes of the genre.

The music is about what you’d expect: distorted beats and blaring synths. Graves keeps a nice balance between dancability … Continue reading

Music Review: Marilyn Manson – Mechanical Animals

Mechanical Animals - Marilyn Manson

Taking an inspiration road turn, Marilyn Manson arrives with a new conceptual album in the form of “Mechanical Animals“. It’s cover features the lead singer MM showcased in an androgynous genital-less pose. In some respect it reminds me of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)”, though I believe that conceptually it was the early 70s album “Ziggy Stardust” that inspired this release.

While clearly a tribute to his influences, “Mechanical Animals” … Continue reading

Music Review: Marilyn Manson – AntiChrist Superstar

antichrist-superstar-marilyn-manson

The world was taken by a storm of raw energy and trendy sounds that can only be defined as Marilyn Manson. “AntiChrist Superstar” was more than just a game changer, it was a formal introduction into the man, his music, and his band’s dark aura of energy rock. This record-breaking album was soon playing on the players of every Goth, rock fan and industrial nut across the board proclaiming MM as the anti-hero for … Continue reading

Music Review: Marilyn Manson – Born Villian

BornVillain-Marilyn-Manson

It appears the angry, in your face gothic hard rock master has returned. Yes, none other than our dearly beloved Marilyn Manson. I say that because his last couple of releases were easily forgettable and void of the kind of material that drew me to his music in the first place. The new album is called “Born Villain” and it’s been long overdue.

“Born Villain” takes the odd road with some of the inventive … Continue reading

Music Review: Grown Below – The Long Now

Album cover: Grown Below - The Long Now

Genre-defining albums have sprinkled metal’s history with those few releases that transcend what’s been done before. Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All taught us metal could be heavy and still be rock and roll, Quiot Riot’s Metal Health ushered in a decade of hair bands, and Nirvana’s Nevermind killed that decade with a single song. More recently, Amorphis gave us Skyforger and showed us that metal didn’t have to be formulaic and boring. Post-metal needs such … Continue reading

Music Review: Hull – Beyond the Lightless Sky

Hull-beyond-the-lightless-sky

It took weeks to figure out what I liked about Beyond the Lightless Sky. I enjoyed the album from first listen, then played it over and over, enjoying it more each time. But what defines Hull? What makes them unique? They’re certainly talented and excellent songwriters, but there are tons of talented bands who write good songs. That isn’t enough to stand out. It hit me while listening in the car that in a … Continue reading
