Artist: Various Artists
Album: Sin-Tech Compilation
Label: Shinto Records
Reviewer: Jay Watson
The Sin-Tech Compilation is a devastating mix of Experimental, Electro, EBM, Goth, Industrial, and more. The comp features such acts as Angels On Acid, C/A/T, XHM, The Oedipus Complex, Phantoms Of The SS, and tons of other great artists.The opening track is called "The Vile (Limbo Mix 1)" by Angels On Acid, featuring some interesting samples, a glitchy beat, and wicked synth. C/A/T provides a dark rhythmic industrial track called "Shoot To Kill" with liquefied vocals/samples and a techno edge to keep peoples feet moving. The Ludovico Technique breaks into the mix with a Black Metal/Techno death sentence "This Life". This is one of my favorite tracks on the album. I will definitely be looking more into this project. The best song title featured on the comp is "Rape Your God" by XHM. It features the infamous sample from The Exorcist when Linda Blair is on the bed screaming in Captain Howdy's voice "Let Jesus Fuck You!" I would love to blast this song in the parking lot of a church when sermon is over. The chorus features the singer repeating and screaming "Rape Your God!" The beat on this is fucking sick. Great song indeed. Life's Decay puts down some awesome delayed piano licks and a minimalist Industrial beat, making for a cool song called "Extzen". This album wouldn’t be complete without an emotional electro song called "Eden" by Imprint. Another standout track, different from the majority of the compilation. Nuns Of Telekinessis is one of the strangest projects featured. I REALLY enjoy "Undercurrent". Odd live drumming, obscure instrumentations, I can’t quite put my finger on what this even sounds like, and that is fantastic. A style of their own for sure. I will be checking out this project . Phantoms Of The SS features twisted noise, ghostly female vocals, and really reminds me of something I would listen to at my favorite cemetery while on a healthy dose of acid, alone. Check them out immediately. This is the best song in my opinion, but I am an obscure noise/experimental freak! So yeah, thanks Sin-Tech, for a great compilation. Go to the site and get your hands on this asap!
