Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-04-04 
Drop dead heavy plodding electro industrial heaviness but tinged with subtly melodic vocals that contrast. If Skinny Puppy got off the dance floor and into a mosh pit, or Swans traded all strings for blown out synths. Brutal tribal intense cathartic. One man band originally from Boston, now San Diego, who is a mechanical engineer by training turned sound designer. And it shows – great stuff. Co-produced with Braden Diotte (Faust, EXO//ENDO, Neurosis, Tarantula Hawk), mixed by Kurt Ballou at God City and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.

1)* (4:30) heavy electro noise 2) (3:37) brutal vocs appear after creepy voiceover 3)* (3:29) heavy again but somehow friendly melodic tone to sung vocals 4) (4:15) again a melodic sense in singing especially in chorus, slow evil plod 5) (4:10) evil returns with demonic vocs and heavy plod but again a melodic chorus, ends cold 6)* (4:39) early swans tribal doom, creepy voiceover 7) (6:06) slow long evil industrial 8)* (6:03) this one is epic, dramatic intense
