UCNX - Generation Damaged
Industrial 'Generation Damaged' is the second release from American based UCNX and it's being released on the label DSBP. Their debut album 'Absolute Zero' was released on UK label MOMT back in 2008, though never reaching my hands, I'll start out from scratch with this brand new album.

The strongly 90's Canadian industrial influenced 'Generation Kill' will flood you with a tsunami of oil, barrels, broken pipes and debris. It's harsh and not embarrassed that it wears dirty clothes, it rather sees it as good clothing fit for a fight. If you are looking for something to keep you warm during the winter months, this is not it. 'Generation Damaged' will instead smack you face first into the radiator and tell you to grow some balls. And I enjoy every minute of it.

Despite its somewhat noisy and loud approach, there are still great melodies to be found here. Also, somewhat poppier structured choruses cut through the hostile background and creates what can only be described as a good middle ground to keep your head from exploding. A good example of this is the third track "Overgrowth" which is also one of my favorites on this album which is perfectly continued on with the guitar riffed and ultra-heavy "The Innocent".

'Generation Kill' is a varied album; you will find a lot of influences here. Even though the 90's Canadian is perhaps the most obvious, you will also find hints of old school EBM, electro rock and ambient. To somewhat of a surprise, the verse of "Our Last Goodbye" reminds me of something that could be found on Covenant's classic 'Sequencer'. A favorite moment I really need to mention is the up speeded sample of the classic Terminator 2 lab scene when Miles Dyson, after being shot, says "I don't know how much longer I can hold this!". Perfect, amazing and put a big smile on my face.

Even though it clocks in pretty short with only 9 tracks, you still get your money's worth, because this is an industrial highlight of 2011. Go fetch.
