Sonik Foundry is the brain child of Nikademus Deflaminis and 'Parish Of Redemption' is Sonik Foundry's 2nd full length release, and their first on Nilaihah Records.

It follows the EP 'The Epiphany' which was released in 2010, which helped reinforce Sonik Foundry's position as a rising force in Industrial music.

In terms of influence, they describe their sounds as :

"In the vein of CombiChrist, Assemblage23, Das Ich, and System Syn" www.sonikfoundry.com

It is safe to say that fans of these acts will definitely find something to enjoy in Sonik Foundry.

Combining the dark, malevolent aggression of Combichrist with the catchier hooks of Assemblage 23 and Rotersand, 'Parish Of Redemption' has a lot to offer EBM and Industrial fans that are looking for some music which has some listen-ability beyond the dance-floor.

The album is full of big beats and dark and dirty bass grooves, with all the elements that a dance orientated industrial act would need, but they also manage to create tracks that are just as enjoyable to actually listen to outside of the clubs, and this is Sonik Foundry's real strength.Reminiscent of Rotersand in particular, Sonik Foundry are able to refrain from over distorting everything, and yet still maintain an intensity and drive that is a necessity for the club scene.

The vocal performance by Nikademus is very strong, relying on a powerful melodic performance instead of the usual heavily distorted vocals that are more typical of the scene, and this adds a refreshing bit of color to the current Industrial Scene.

Overall, the production is crisp, and clear, aided by the clarity of the vocals in particular, and the songs are catchy and hook-laden, meaning that this is an album you can leave in the car, or by the stereo, as it has more appeal than just a stomping soundtrack.

A very enjoyable listen, and well worth checking out.
