Industrial Metal project Binary Order releases potential final album "The Future Belongs To The Mad"
UK industrial metal project has released what is possibly his final album and magnum opus under Binary Order. The album in question is “The Future Belongs To The Mad” and is a twelve-track album featuring an amalgamation of ideas blending industrial metal, IDM, and cyberpunk music. Benjamin Blank, the founder of the project, stated that he is unsure whether or not Binary Order will continue following this album. Produced during a difficult period of his life that he’s still going through, he was never sure whether or not the album would find completion. Luckily it did. You can stream / purchase the album below and you can read Blank’s full statement below.
It's never easy to be honest about these kind of things, but I feel it’s important with this release to be so. The Future Belongs To The Mad was written during possibly the most difficult period I've ever had to get through - a period I'm not actually done dealing with - and one from which I now fear I shall never depart.
This album is an expression of my own inability to find meaning or purpose in life. And the utter disdain and emotional distraught that comes from the accumulation of living like that year, after year, after year. With this album I've managed to turn something that is for all intents and purposes destroying me, and created what is without any doubt in my mind, the greatest accomplishment of my life.
I don’t know if there is going to be anymore Binary Order after this. Finishing this album felt like an impossibility at one point, and now it’s done I feel like I am too. I hope anyone who listens to this can find something of value for within it. If not then I just appreciate having this platform to express myself in this way because it has kept me alive.
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.
