Aborym - Dirty

by Dead Skin Matt at 27 May 2013, 1:46 PM

For all those reading this that were born after 1985, Industrial music used to be an alternative way to make Metal if you didn’t have any friends. It consisted mostly of simplistic drum beats that were programmed on these archaic devices called Drum Machines, vocals recorded with guitar distortion pedals, and some power chord riffs. All capable done with one rich kid, since you had to be rich to afford being a one man band/recording studio. There was no Pro-Tools, no Logic, no Garage Band.  4 tracks.  8 if you were a really rich kid. Working within these constraints still produced some great stuff.

However, Industrial Music is dead. It died of old age. It went the way o the dinosaurs and it can’t come back. It’s dead because the technology has evolved. What made up the sound of Industrial music were the restraints the technology put on the artist. Those restraints are gone. With today’s tech one guy can make an entire symphony of perfectly sounding intricate music. There are 0 limitations now. Now your music will sound like you have tons of friends, no matter how much of a douche bag you are.

Wait a sec…. I’m supposed to be reviewing an album. "Dirty" by ABORYM is reminiscent of everything I was boring you about in the previous two paragraphs.  Definitely inspired by MINISTRY, Marilyn Manson, MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE, and other bands that do not start with the letter M.  It’s what I would assume a rave in hell sounds like. Not all the tracks are winners. The Opening intro tricked me into thinking my iPod was broken. If that was their intention then …bravo.  “I Don’t Know” shifts from CRADLE OF FILTH to FAITH NO MORE, but not in a good way.

I recommend "Dirty" for anyone that enjoyed the Techno Remix albums of ROB ZOMBIE, RAMMSTEIN, FEAR FACTORY or Marilyn Manson, or if you own any of the David Bowie albums with Trent Reznors stamp on them.
