Fabrication Rock, Industrial Technikult of Flesh Technikult of Flesh is a New York based industrial project that I've had my eye on for quite a while since I saw their two music videos for "Fabrication" and "Pandemic". Both were hard hitting and very visceral, and I'm glad I finally have the time to sit down and review their 2012 album titled, 'Fabrication'. Now, to start off the frenzy within this album is the title song, "Fabrication". The synths take the main stage, with backdrops of guitar work and everything from noise to the haunting and eerie vocals of the lead singer dripping into one sweet pool of ecstasy. The second song on the list, "Pandemic", is more noise than anything with the vocals being more vicious this time around. However, what I find to be awesome about this band is the maturity of the lyrics; it is pure, dark poetry. "Pandemic" focuses on the cold hard fact that over population is plaguing mankind, whereas the prior song focuses on selling yourself out to become someone you're not. Both songs are really heavy, with the lyrics and the style just kicking you square in the balls. It's hard to go through each and every song on this release, but I can tell you that each and every single one are worth your time. There's so much variation, that you'll likely find at least one song that you'll enjoy. "Electro Bitch", as the title states, is definitely more electronic centric than a lot of the other songs, "I Don't Fear the Dark" comes out to a smooth rock song, being gentle and getting rid of some of the vocal effect presented in the other songs. Just to reiterate, there is a huge variation in this album. Not to mention that this album is also a seventeen track release. And each song is talent from the artist; there are no remixes to see, and I love seeing what an artist can pull off on their own without pulling in the use of other musicians. As far as negatives go, I'd be damned to nitpick and just find a blemish on this album. To keep it simple, I can only say that this twisted net of industrial is grandiose. I keep finding these awesome bands, and so long as the good music keeps rolling in, I'll be willing to keep on listening. And, just as a quick closure, Technikult of Flesh has blown me away with 'Fabrication', and I just can't get enough of their dark but true visions of humanity and society in general. 550

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.
