Rated: *****
Atmosphere is one of those things that often get forgotten in industrial music, but one only needs to listen to some old Skinny Puppy to see how much better the music is because of it. The Future Process is not really like Skinny Puppy, but they do a good job of trying to have some nice synth-based atmosphere. They list as influences NIN, Manson, Depeche Mode, MSI, KMFDM. I can see the influences, but they don’t really sound like any of them - they aren’t really as harsh as KMFDM, NIN, etc. I’m trying to come up with comparisons, but I’m having a hard time doing it and that is a good thing in my book. Maybe a bit like Deathline International meets Gravity Kills? Some of the tracks toward the end didn’t quite work. For example, "Ridin" was a bit too slow – almost lethargic - and not as interesting as some of the other tracks. It was almost as if the band was tired by the end of the album. However, Fractures was a good noisy finish to the album. For the hardcore rivetheads out there, this may not be heavy enough, but this is a good crossover album. The Future Process never seems to really let loose, but it’s a pleasant listen and I’d be willing to bet that they put on a good show. Certainly worth checking out their myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/thefutureprocess) to hear some tracks.
