Artist: FREUDSTEIN (@)
Title: Mass Market Misery
Format: CD
Label: Wasp Factory (@)
Rated: *****
After their first album "Mondo Freudo" released back in 2001 David Else and Andrew Bridge started to prepare their come back which arrived after five years from their first release. MASS MARKET MISERY is the new chapter of their industrial/electro/horror saga and since the first listening it convinced me. The different tracks have always something distinctive and the blend of the different influences (they name Goblin as well as Depeche Mode and Slayer but I’m sure they also have been influenced by the master of Italian thriller/horror movies Dario Argento) make of MASS MARKET MISERY a very inspired album that will thrill the lovers of industrial metal as well as e.b.m. or Killing Joke lovers (sometimes they also remind me Velvet Acid Christ). Also tracks like "Intro to filthy little whore Pt.2" or "Robots Pt1:Conflict in dollars" which sounds like horror movie soundtracks are really functional into creating a disturbing atmosphere that enrich the album. Electronic dark ballads team up with electro metal rides and industrial moments creating thirty nine minutes of breath taking dark music. Check it, MASS MARKET MISERY has now low points!
