Third Realm - New World Order
Darkwave, Industrial I absolutely loved the darkwave creation of Third Realm's previous album 'Romantic Death'. While some of that gloomy feeling is still in his new album 'New World Order', for the most of it, it has another agenda.

With a sound that borders on industrial and sometimes with hints of aggrotech, it takes a few listens for me to get used to it. Since 'Romantic Death' was my first experience of Nathan Reiner's project, it's hard to wash out the presumption of gloomy bitterness. Here, we find a much more straight-in-your-face sound and with sometimes unhidden political undertones (is "Set the World on Fire" and "Lies of the Nation" a clear message enough for you?). Nathan is upset. Nathan is angry. Nathan does great industrial inspired music.

Even though this is his second album this year, for the most of the time it does not feel rushed. All tracks have their own identity. There's no copy and paste here. The quality and mastering is top notch and the levels suit my likings perfect. Still, I think that a slower release pace might be recommended in the future, because I hardly think he can upkeep the quality in the long run with a two full albums a year schedule.

If you?d like to taste some appetizers from this album, I suggest you check out "Lies of the Nation", "Resistance", "New World Order", "Freedom" and "Feed the Demon". Also I would recommend you listen to the cover of Gerard McMann's "Cry Little Sister" from The Lost Boys soundtrack. Beautiful.

After the self-released 'Romantic Death', Third Realm is back on his former label Radio-Active-Music and though 'New World Order' is a completely different experience than 'Romantic Death', they are two chapters from the same book.
