Marc Heal and Phil Barry have not missed a beat. In their first collaborative release as Cubabnate in about twenty years, the duo propel Cubanate into the 21st Century in the most fitting way as elder statesmen of a genre showing the kids how it’s done.[Read more…]
If you’ve been with <PIG> since the beginning then the natural progression of this awesome Electro/Industrial/Glam project has been the absolute best rollercoaster to ride on, especially with the recent second coming phase. However, if The Gospel and subsequent current outings haven’t been your cuppa then my best advice is that you’d best scurry back to the fold and beg for forgiveness because all you non-believers are about ready to bear witness to a more even keeled, well-rounded, and fine tuned incarnation of <PIG>.

Raymond Watts is a living legend. He is. Whether he’s taking it all on with <PIG> or collaborating with KMFDM or Alexander McQueen, Watts is genuinely a prolific creator. Like fellow Industrial Metal luminaries Paul Barker and Chris Connelly, he is also a man not bound by the rules of the genre. Quite frankly, the man likes to branch out!

Oh my! If you were underwhelmed by last year’s comeback and the accompanying Remix album (Released earlier this year) then the Lord of Lard has something that will guarantee your return to the flock.

Cubanate was ahead of their time in the ’90’s. They might still be which is why there’s no time like the present to celebrate these techno industrial titans with an all new collected works. [Read more…]
As an industrial music fan I’m embarrassed to admit that I was never into Cubanate back in the day. Sure, I dug what they did but for some reason never invested in anything beyond “Oxyacetylene” off the Mortal Kombat soundtrack in the mid ’90’s. Cut to today and I’m scrambling to find a copy of Cyberia because who knew in the digital age that it’d still be hard to legally obtain a copy of an out-of-print classic. [Read more…]
PRAISE THE LARD, Pig has risen again and blessed his herd with not one, but two releases this year with hopefully more to follow (New full-length please?). If you’re impatient (Like me!) and can’t hold out until the EP with Primitive Race is released in June (Our review is here) then how about some instant gratification in the form of the Compound Eye Sessions?
