Plastic Noose - Fractured Despondency
Electro-Industrial, Industrial Metal In March of last year, an absolute hatred shook the Earth from the core, resonating across time and space, being felt by inter-dimensional beings and mankind alike. And that hatred took a physical body in the form of Plastic Noose's Fractured Despondency. This hard hitting industrial metal album has everything for fans of the genre that one could ask for.

The vocals are deep and growling, and they force you to understand that the man behind the music is in no mood for any of your shit. He's here to show you what's what and shove his misanthropic recordings straight down your throat.

But, as much as I liked the voice, the lyrics came off fairly boring, sometimes severely looping, such as in Doomladen, where the only word that was spoken throughout the entirety of the song was, "Doomladen". I feel as if this song would have been served better as an instrumental, even if there are lower samples behind the music.

Strontain was a beautiful dark ambient and metal tune, playing with high pitched notes coming off a guitar, with enlightening synths used for the background. It was a work of art to me.

For Me decided to play it a lot more slower, implementing less metal influences and more electronic magic. There's a stready beat all throughout the song, with notes being played with ever so slightly. And, also, the vocals take it a notch down and become light and nice rather than growling like Satan on a good day.

I was none too impressed by Sorrow at all, as it comes off as a horrible guitar solo, or so it seems to be, possibly recorded on an 8 track. However, this is the only low point on the album in my perspective; the rest still kicked ass.

And, the final song was an absolute beast. Coming in at sixteen and a half minutes, we are treated to a fucking awesome electronic guitar ridden song that moves slowly into your veins and makes you wish you could see this live. The breathing in the background at parts of the song was not annoying, and only served the song better. I don't care if you don't listen to the rest of this album, just get your ass to this final song and have a good day.

All is said and done now, the music reviewed, the songs that stuck out the most to me discussed. This is a fantastic industrial metal album, moving back and forth between wonderful Hellish tastes to more mellow and peaceful workings. Check it out; I can't wait for my own physical copy to arrive.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
