Industrial dance? I'm not an following the genre anymore but I would have been all over this when I was a kid- cool noises, has a beat & melody, angsty. Good listening, probably not great for dance since the beat ain't ubiquitous. Many guest vocalists.|
1.intro track. Vocal is more spoken poem (with some stretchy granular effects) over backwards bass beats.
2.hip-hop beats, thavius introduces himself. rap that doesn't rhyme. clean despite the title.
3.fast beat, minor key. neat vocal samples which I can't understand- german?
4.sped up old record sample, mid-fast, buzzy bass, motivational speeches.
5.mid-slow, makes me sway to and fro, nice short instrumental (vocal sample at the end)
6.midtempo, more buzzy noises. Doesn't hold together as well.
7."movie about the apocalypse" intro, rap that keeps on going 'bout gloomy death
8.instrumental, kinda basic beat with a few noises on top
9.intro calling for burning secular music, same sample used at the start of a negativland song years ago (Michael Jackson)- in fact some of the beats sound like sped up negativland from that album! rest of it mid-fast instrumental.
10.music is so early-90s.... midtempo minor key, buzzy, warbly. Querilous high-pitched diva vox low in mix.
11.slow, analog 70's synth sounds, epic.
12.FCC(?) calls someone an "asshole" & says "ass" so may be indecent. clean bass tones & gated percussion. Psych/zep style guitar solo sped up sample.
13.end-of-the-world samples, neat god disaster stuff. slow end music with bass kick beat and synth cymbal going 1-2-1-2...
