Deadstar Assembly - Coat of Arms
Industrial, Gothrock Not much has changed since the last time I heard Deadstar Assembly, but that is a good thing, because I really enjoyed their last album and their new one 'Coat of Arms' is as uncompromising, if not even more, than 'Unsaved'.

Either way, it has everything an industrial metal band should have. Nice melodies, heavy guitars and fast blast beats backed up with aggressive vocals and melodic synthesizers.

'Coat of arms' is one really ass kicking album to lay out straight and I like almost all tracks on the album except for a few ones, but this is a normal thing I guess.

The best tracks by far are "Arm and a leg" with its catchy chorus and really awesome guitar solo, "Shadows" which has a really fast beat and a real drive to it and makes you want to headband your eyeballs out. And the last one "Breath for me" which is a slow track with some nice piano parts which adds a mellowness without being boring and still maintaining some aggressiveness.

Some people might whine that this is more metal than electro, but I don't really give a shit cause this is a really awesome release and should be picked up by fans of Dope Stars Inc and Deathstars etc.
