Necrorder - Slaves & Whores
Industrial Metal Necrorder is a Mexican industrial metal act which seems to focus quite a bit on the Black Metal influences (at least when it comes to lyrics and production).

Their album 'Slaves & Whores' is a 10 track album which features tracks with names like "Black Acid Hell" and "Deviant Sex Intercourse". Maybe not the cleverest name for tracks but for this type of music it doesn't really matter much. What about the music? Well it's your typical industrial metal with more focus on the metal parts and very little on the industrial.

If you like bands that sound a bit like Dope Stars Inc or KMFDM (I know it's two bands that sound very different but I still label them both industrial metal anyway) then I kind of doubt that you will get into this band. This is more like Fear Factory or something similar. The music isn't bad, it's pretty good with its blast beats and pumping guitars and synthesizers, but my biggest problem is the production. It's very very flawed and sounds too demo in my ears. The vocals are like in a lot of bands releases, very low in volume.

In the end, if the album had been better produced I would probably give it a higher score for sure, but since I am such a whiny bitch when it comes to production and quality this doesn't quite make the cut for me. Hopefully the guys will work a bit more on their sound and evolve it even further and of course get some proper studio production and they will have a very solid album. None the less this isn't a terrible album so it gets a decent grade from me.
