Chrysalide - Lost in a Lost World
Industrial, Electro-Industrial Chrysalide ain't playin yo. They've given us 13 intense songs. This is music for Armageddon.

This is crash bang at its best. It is boisterous and sophisticated; menacing and demented. These guys have picked up the crown dropped by Skinny Puppy.

'The Lonely Family' has the chunkiest nastiest riff. If this came out in the 90's nobody would've ever complained about 'crossover' music. It fits seamlessly into the sonic mayhem without waking the specter of metal guitar. Hell, I'm not sure it is a guitar.

The strength of these songs isn't in sophisticated programming or patches, but rather the drama and the power. These are explosive songs. They make the room shake. They make your ears ache.

It's lovely.

Chrysalide is quite clear about their influences. The Skinny Puppy-ness is quite obvious, but hey, I'm not gonna complain. No matter how you listen, this is good good stuff.
