Run Level Zero - Symbol of Submission
EBM, Industrial Take two deciliters EBM, take one deciliter Interlace and lace it with inspiration from Leatherstrip and Front Line Assembly and if you ask me, you have the drink Run Level Zero.

I am very ambiguous with my thoughts when it comes to this album. One part says it's a pretty boring production where most of it sounds the same and the lyrics is sometimes really bad, but sometimes I think it is pretty good. Take for example the track "Feedback Birds". A song I think is really ridiculous, but on the other hand it would be really funny to tear up the dance floor too, and act really stupid.

The album includes tracks that probably would work perfectly fine on the dance floor. A good example is the heavy opening "Shadows Merging", also the tracks "My Tormentor", "Black Limbs" and absolutely "Terror to Substain" which is a really powerful package on the album. That's all there is. The other tracks unfortunate feels boring and tedious.

I want to give the album both a 3 and a 6, depending on which of my ambiguous thoughts I should follow. The total result will have to be a 5 where it strengthens by the extremely nice layout on the album in true H.R. Giger-spirit.
