Shifting Through The Lense EBM, Industrial Front Line Assembly Front Line Assembly is here with their first single from the upcoming album 'Improvised Electronic Device'. The track 'Shifting Through The Lense' really surprise me in a good way with their almost techno inspired sound. The flowing sound and vocoder vocals reminded me of good old Evils Toy in a way, but of course, Front Line Assembly makes it their way, like they've always done. The second track "Angriff" opens up very slow with a piano and a relaxed beat, but then rips you a new one with some pounding sampled guitars over one minute into the track. Bringing the industrial sound of the end of the 90's back again. It is explosive and impressive. A big leap from the first track though. The third track "Endless Void" is an almost 10 minute long instrumental track. The sad thing about it is that it really doesn't happen so much until after four minutes into it, so it's easy to skip the track. But I suggest you hang in with it, because when it comes, it's beautiful. With this single, Front Line Assembly shows three different sides, I can not do other than wondering what their album will be like and how they will tie all together. 450
