Album Review
rE\dOx + LadyDev
Reviewed 2004-03-02 
Heavy “industrial”-type beats w/ distorted vocals and harsh samples and synth arrangements.
Another industrial band that's withstood the test of time, Suicide Commando, comes straight at you with a no-holds barred attitude. Along the lines of KMFDM, they include anti-establishment protests in their tracks and album titles. And their music makes your innards thump against your chest because of its aggressively heavy beats. Overall, another solid release from the SC crew and having taken “Best Album of 2003” on the German Alternative Charts (DAC), this one's worth a spin. If you want to dive right in, I recommend track #1, but ALL are worthy of play.

the good: solid “industrial” sound; heavy beats and distorted vocals to boot
the bad: if not into this music, some tracks may seem repetitive
the ugly: nuthin'
potty-mouth tracks: none detected

(note: rating numbers are out of 10 and following each track description)
1.Cause of Death: Suicide: cool intro (samples, synths)--bit long, so might want to start at ~(-7:00); GREAT TRACK—PLAY THIS!! (9.5) 2.Consume Your Vengeance: slower; haunting vocals (8) 3.Face of Death (Blind Rage mix): really heavy beats; great synth work; definite club hit (9) 4.The Reformation: very “march-ey”; solid beats (9) 5.One Nation Under God (anti-US mix): like the lyrics and title; slower but still heavy beats (8) 6.MordFabrik: good bass-line; songs broken into sections (8) 7.Evildoer: mellow synths on intro then breaks into heavy beats (8) 8.Sterbehilfe: eerie chorus on intro; distorted vocals and great beat (9) 9.PlastikChrist: nice sample on the intro; nice message in the lyrics (9) 10.Neurosuspension: “time to die” sample on intro which is cool; solid, solid “industrial” sound (9)
