Genre/Influences: Industrial, Experimental.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Spanish project strikes back with a new album which in a way has something conceptual. The title of the work is taken from Pink Floyd when they disbanded in 1975 and had already become strangers to each other.

Content: The album sounds versatile, definitely Experimental, but still spiced with Industrial sound treatments and overwhelming Electro passages. The Industrial rhythm is rather slow which is fitting with some of the cuts revealing intelligent Industrial-Electro. The work slowly evolves towards an Experimental/Cinematic final.

+ + + : The work isn’t easy to catch but features impressive, great songs. I especially recommend listening to “Nauseating – Parts I, V, MIX & MMMDCCCLXXXVIII” and “Eve’s Insane Swan” both revealing this kind of ‘intelligent industrial music’.

– – – : The last part of the album sounds like getting lost in less inspired Experimental- and Cinematic music.

Conclusion: Escupemetralla remains a very unique project in modern Experimental/Industrial music. They’ve been inspired by a weird theme to accomplish a few great tracks.

Best songs: “Nauseating – Parts I, V, MIX & MMMDCCCLXXXVIII”, “Eve’s Insane Swan”, “Green And Submarine”, “The Nihil song”.

Rate: 7½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
