mindFluxFuneral - A Quiet State
Industrial, Industrial Rock mindFlux:Funeral is a name I remember from years before as this is one of the projects that my older brother used to listen to. Never really listened to it before, yet the name was so intriguing it stuck with me. That is why when I saw this album in the promopool I decided to check it out, and it was worth it.

They call it “harsh cinematic industrial” and that’s exactly what it is. There’s something from digital hardcore, something from the oldschool skinny puppy-like industrial and there’s a lot of sublime atmosphere as if it’s all a soundtrack for a John Carpenter movie. This is the band’s 3rd album (not counting the “revenant” that was released under the name “virus”) and the fans had to wait 7 years to get it. It features 11 songs that are very dynamic, energetic and hardcore. Almost everything here is distorted – starting with the vocals, guitars and even drums. Fortunately it is not 100% pink noise. There’s melodies here.

Most of the songs are rather low-paced. This is the factor that gives it the soundtrack-feeling. If you’re looking for a Suicide Commando clone this is definitely not the place to look. This is not “terror-trance”, there’s no gasmasks here. This is what the 30+ fans of industrial know to be “dark-electro”.

If you like the newest annodalleb or Volt 9000 release - this should definitelly be the next one to buy!
