it-clings vs pneumatic detach - the all too logical descent into [CD]
if words are a weapon then canada's it-clings is a one man arsenal of mass destruction. never before has the truth been laid bare with such complex and honest emotions. when this spoken wordcore artist reaches into the depths of his soul he dishes out the harsh reality that lies within. juxtaposing a very personal perspective with one that is fictionally extreme, "the all too logical descent into madness" is a reinvention of the archetypal industrial album. with a cynicism that borders on paranoia and psychopathy, this concept album drives the nail of truth home into the surface of all that we deem trivial and mundane, and all that we casually choose to ignore. searching past the banality of existence it is a stark look at the world where the only correct conclusions, the only logical conclusions are those of utter madness. and where does the blame for this insanity lie? it lies within everything and everyone. this is perhaps the angriest album you will ever hear. then whom do you need to help deliver such gospel? at this point in steps boston's own underground industrial legend pneumatic detach. with crushing brutality the relentless barrage assaults the listener, but this is an assault of technical awe-inspiring rhythm and electronic structure. these are percision beats that act as the proverbial hammer to drive forward the vocal offensive. expectations of what makes an industrial album must be put aside. what remains is a perfect blend of cruelty and humour that will surely go over the heads of most people. a perfect blend of pretentiousness and self mockery. a perfect blend of nihilism and common sense. a perfect blend of all that is wrong with industrial with all that is right. in this, their first full length collaboration, it-clings and pneumatic detach compliment each other perfectly and deliver mercilessly on target. you have been warned.... listen at your own risk.
