Various Artists - Defcon 3.5: War In Heaven
Other

It is often quite a challenge to review a compilation album. Frequently you find yourself walking the razor blade between your loves and your hates. Generally you try and act professionally and review the work with an open mind, but usually that fails by the second or third song on the album and you find yourself cutting corners to show support to your chosen bands and songs. So you can imagine the joy that overcame me when I actually enjoyed every song on this album.



I do not wish to give too much away regarding this master stroke of work, so I will simply say the following: Buy this album! Buy it now. Okay, maybe I have to give you more than that...



Well for one, the songs on this album represent the cream of Armalyte Industries. I can tell you that I have spent many a happy hour listening to the works of Judda, New Disease, Cyferdyne and co. To me they are amongst the higher echelons of the scene. One might even say they are part of the pantheon of the new gods.

Songs like Judda's 'React' and Kloq's 'Drive' show the power and drive that the scene is capable of. While songs like Method of the W.O.R.M.'s 'No Flesh' and Starline's 'Platinum Spider' show the creative power of the scene and the essence of diverse music.



Bottom line, if you adore diversity and love a mixed bag of nuts then this album is a must have.
