Necro Facility - The Black Paintings
EBM, Industrial It's very impressive that you in the year 2005 still are able to create something as genuine, Canadian and old-school EBM which had its time back in the end of the 80's and the beginning of the 90's. Further more the impressive points reach its top limit when the two of the most active band members had barely left kindergarten during that period.

The album 'The Black Paintings' is the most Skinny Puppy you could be and still not call it a rip-off. There's allot of similarities when you take a look at the musical part even though you get the feeling that there's much more evolved technique behind the producing and mastering. Further than that you find the same kind of cynical and cryptic lyrics and the writer of the lyrics, Henrik Bäckström, have managed to play with the words very well.

My favourite tracks on this album is "Downstairs", "Methane View", "Ifrit" and "Nursed", but there's some more highlights on this album than the tracks I mentioned. Don't miss this bands performance at this year SAMA festival, this summers festivals and their next release in the future. I predict a bright future for this band and hopefully they will be our new band of pride we Swedes could enjoy to have within our borders.
