Sonik Foundry – Parish Of Redemption (CD - Nilaihah Records)Posted on 20/06/11
After the debut-CD “Mechanized” and the EP “Epiphany” both released on Hitman Records this American band set up by Nikademus (previously involved in Bow Ever Down) signed to Nilaihah Records. “Parish Of Redemption” sounds definitely harder that the previous album and is a cool piece of EBM.
The songs are all powerful EBM tracks where influences of Leather Strip, And One and the more sophisticated Komor Kommando are merging together. Sonik Foundry has seriously improved their global production gaining a unique sound identity. This is not the kind of cheap and cliché EBM composition, but well-crafted songs. Several songs reveal a more complex writing while some technoid elements were added on top. I’m referring to “Pulse Of The Deranged” and “Recluse”. I’m also recommending “Severance Pray”, which is a powerful opener, “Poison” for the little And One touch, “Corrode” moving back into muscled EBM, “Vaporize” for the typical Leather Strip bass line and “Voices” for being a great dance floor piece. Nikademus was assisted by live members, but he seems to keep total control for the writing and vocals as well. The vocals are quite alluring and perfectly fit to the sound.
“Parish Of Redemption” is an accomplished EBM release that will possibly put Sonik Foundry on the EBM map.
