Format: CD
Label: Black Pill Red Pill
Distributor: Nova Media / Pater Noster / Audioglobe
Rated: *****
After moving to Germany for a year to promote their music at the best and after extensively touring with KMFDM, Frontline Assembly, Front 242, Angespit release, for the new label Black Pill Red Pill (available in the U.S. on Metropolis Records and on Darkest Labyrinth in Japan), their new album HIDEOUS AND PERFECT. Available in Europe and Australia as a luxurious three gate fold wallet with a 16 page booklet and a folded poster containing the lyrics on its rear, HIDEOUS AND PERFECT shows the band at their best bringing to their fans twelve new tracks. Listening to the album a couple of times I was amazed by how the duo balanced the distortions with the sampled handmade percussions (they recorded much of the album's pounding industrial percussion at an abandoned shipping yard in Sydney Harbour) and electronic instruments. The sound is powerful but always in control, there's no compression and the female/male vocals along with the granitic guitar riffs give to the sound a great effect. Angelspit industrial electronic sound is an intelligent blend of melody, rhythms and energy impossible to ignore. With this version of the album you'll be able also to enjoy their visual vision where DestroyX incarnate a cyberpunk Japanese doll and ZooG a "Clockwork orange" dandy...
