By reading the presentation you can find at the label's website this CD should represent a sort of comment to the 60's social tension. Unfortunately the promo I own has got only the cover of the CD and doesn't contains any comments or else and by looking at the images of the booklet (which has seems to represent poor people and a couple of beaten protesters who had enough and run away) I have no idea what the comment is. Also the titles ("Patiently waiting", "Move to strike", "New armour", "Dear Sir or Madame", "Once a man", "Traitors", "Pick it up", "Move over once" and "Struggle for life") don't help that much because they seem to support riot but I don't understand who the traitors are, at this point. Musically, if we can talk about music, the tracks are a mixture of 80's industrial with grinding noises and treated vocals which sometimes remember me the Grey Wolves or the Nails Of Christ. The work has got a certain fashion but in my opinion Institut hasn't developed the concept enough and this is a shame because you can't throw a stone by talking about society and then hide the hand by putting together noises and masked lyrics that no one can understand.

Artist: KLIMT 1918 (@)
Title: Undressed Momento
Format: CD
Label: My Kingdom Music (@)
Distributor: Masterpiece Distribution
After splitting their previous progressive death metal band named Another Day, brothers Marco and paolo Soellner formed Klimt 1918. Treasuring their passed experience, the duo decide to move ahead exploring new musical frontiers by expanding their sound to new influences. Taking bands like Anathema, Katatonia, The Beatles, Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Smiths, Novembre, Opeth, Fields Of Nephilim, Porcupine Tree, U2 (old) and Tears For Fears as reference point they started to perfor their first songs they gathered into a demo released two years ago and titled "Secession Makes Post Modern Music". For that occasion they recuited two new members: Davide Pesola (bass) and Francesco Tumbarello (at guitars and replaced on spring 2002 by Alessandro Pace). Recorded, mixed and mastered at the Outer Sound Studios with Giuseppe Orlando and Massimiliano Pagliuso (Novembre's members) the band started to record UNDRESSED MOMENTO. The album reflect the influences of the guys and at the same moment explore each field of melancholy bringing moments of metal (see some guitar riffs or the double bass drum of "Stalingrad Theme" ) along with new wave atmosphere and suggestive clean vocals. A CD that tend to satisfy a wide range of listeners, being able to mix different styles creating something new and pulsing. If dreaming melancholy is your preferred feeling this is for you...

Artist: David Thrussell
Title: The Hard Word (Soundtrack)
Format: CD
Label: Metropolis Records
Distributor: Metropolis Records
Kind of off the beaten path for Metropolis, which is more into electronic, goth and industrial tracks, this is their first soundtrack release, done by Dave Thrussell of Snog. To me, given I’m not really into soundtrack type CDs at all unless I’ve seen the film, this one seems to paint out the film for you. If not paint out a whole film for you in your mind. It’s very laid back, with a sort of jazz and lounge principle, reminding me often times of Henry Mancini’s famous "Pink Panther" soundtrack (though nothing like the "Peter Gun" music, mind you), more than anything Snog or Black Lung ever did (which is much more electronic based, respectively). It’s a pretty good CD for simply relaxing to, for those who haven’t seen the film or who have seen it and perhaps not liked it (I haven’t seen it myself, so it’s good, mellow music to me). Rating: 9.

Artist: ROZ VITALIS (@)
Title: Painsadist
Format: CD EP
Label: Self Produced
Roz Vitalis is the personal project of Ivan Rozmainsky, a guy coming from Russia and who is also active also as a keyboard player in different goth bands. PAINSADIST is his latest CDr E.P. and this time he's also helped by Nadezhda Regentova at vocals and Vladimir Polyakov for some lyrics, music and guest musician on keyboards on "Miles Inside" and "Smile Tonight". Roz Vitalis' music recalled me some atmospheres of the Philip Glass' suites and also the experimentation of some 70's progressive bands. The seven tracks are based on piano or organ parts where here and there cyclic noises came by to give a sort of creepy touch. Also Nedezhda's vocals are kinda disturbing and give to the songs a sense of uncertainty. This is an interesting E.P. and if you want to have a taste of Ivan's music just visit his mp3.com page.
Artist: Sister Machine Gun
Title: 6.6 Machine
Format: CD
Label: Positron! Records (@)
Distributor: Positron! Records
It's been awhile since I've heard music from Sister Machine Gun. Now they're back with a new six tracks release off their own label Positron! Records. Chicago's own industrial rock duo brings electro-funk dance to Jimi Hendrix to stir a new kind of flavor to their music. The album 6.6 Machine can be played in the mainstream areas. Some of the tracks on the disc reminds me of some songs by artists I heard on the radio, even though I don't care for alternative stuff. SMG will blow you away precisely with "Gas Chamber", "In Their Veins" and "Bullet To Spare." The origin of industrial roots is what they're exploring. SMG modern signature sound progress slow-burn rock with electronic elements.
