Invoke The Insult - Let The Greedy Stand Trial
Old School EBM Invoke the Insult's EP 'Xposed' from 2011 which I reviewed just over a year ago failed to impress me, and unfortunately the album 'Let The Greedy Stand Trial' does not fare so well either.

The band is from my hometown Gothenburg and plays monotone Old School EBM. I have to give them credit for not trying to incorporate any Harsh or Aggrotech, instead going all in with something that feels a bit like Leaether Strip or very early Front Line Assembly.

One of the problems with this review is that it is so garage, you can almost hear the wife calling from the kitchen, "Hubby, it's dinner!" - "Shut up god damnit, I'm recording out here!". That's how garage this release is. It has a heavy demo feeling and its low quality. For once, you can judge the book by the covers.

As I mentioned, it's quite monotone and it's also very slow going EBM. And slow going Old School works if it's a punch in it, it needs to be heavy as concrete on your bare shoulders. Here, it doesn't get any heavier than an upset poodle. So instead of packing a punch, you rather want to send it to International Institute of Sleep (http://intlsleep.com) for studying.

Still, somehow, I can feel there's something that can possibly come out from this. However, the poor vocals and the bad quality needs to take both one and fifty steps until I get really interested.
