Editorial Review

Call it what you want: emo-core, alternative, sneaker metal...the Deftones seemed the most unlikely quartet to come out on Madonna's Maverick Records. The music is agro, abrasive, and damn near primal from the disc's first few seconds. Tool-like whisperings of frontman Chino Moreno can bring the mood from disconcerting to downright dangerous in seconds. Heavy, chunky guitar riffs, mad raps, and testy tempo changes make this a must-have for fans of whisper-to-a-primal-scream alterna-rock. Killer tracks: "Bored" and "7 Words." --Denise Sheppard ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Metal Album of the 90s
The Deftones are a band who go against the grain,constantly evolve and sound like no other band around.They have been placed in a genre with bands like Korn,Slipknot, Linkin Park etc....this is,to me, a great injustice to a band whos music is far more layered,deep and innovative than all these bands.
'Adrenaline', although i love the other three emensely, is still my favourite Deftones album. The raw aggression of this record is breath taking.Songs like 'seven words','engine no. nine" and "nosebleed" are moshpit classics. The band also illustrate their differences from other "nu-metal",(i hate calling the Deftones this), bands with songs that are as atmospheric,dark and moody as they are aggressive. Songs like "Firreal" and 'Root' indicate the way in which the Deftones were to evolve in the next few records they released. The hidden track 'Fist" , is in my opinion of the most beautiful songs around. Adrenaline is the best album in its genre period.

1.Bored 8/10- the most radio friendly song on the album,great none the less.
2.Minus Blindfold- 9/10 awesome song,Stef displaying song real skills on the guitar.
3.One Weak-9/10 great song, Chinos voice shines on this track
4.Nosebleed-9/10- aggresion,power,anguish, what more can i say?
5.Root- 9/10 -another great song,very infectious chorus,great ending
6.Nosebleed-7/10-probably my least favourite song on the album but decent none the less
7.Seven Words- 10/10-What can i say? you want song to mosh to, here it is,a pure adrenaline rush
8.-Birthmark-10/10- My favourite song on the album ,very melodic at the start bulids up to one of the greatest finales with Stef banging out a superd riff
9-Engine no nine-8/10- another great song oozing raw power
10-Firreal-10/10-a pointer of things to come,and great illustration of what this band is about, atomosphere,power and melody
Fist-10/10- beautiful!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Pure ADRENALINE, from start to finish..............
Though many will site "Around The Fur" as their best, I'm gonna have to go with Adrenaline as Deftones' best album to date. Both White Pony and their new, self titled album are amazing, but don't measure up to the rawness and rage that comes seething through your speaker when you pop this s**t in.

1)Bored: AMAZING! Defintely a classic record in the nu-metal genre.
5/5

2)Minus Blindfold: Good song. I love the chorus for some reason.
4/5

3)One Weak: I like this one aswell. It reminds me of "Minus Blindfold" a little too much though. Great regardless.
3.5/5

4)Nosebleed: HOT!!! This song is off tha hook! It is quite possibly the heaviest, angriest, most agressive song Deftones has ever put out.
5/5

5)Lifter: This is another great one. I love the vibe that this song gives off, and the riff is kool.
5/5

6)Root: One of the weaker cuts off the album, but this album's so good that it isn't a bad thing.
3.5/5

7)7 Words: Classic. Heavy, agressive, and unadulterated.
5/5

8)Birthmark: Luv this one! Everything about it is good.

9)Engine #9: This might be the best song on this entire album. This song is perfect. Chino raps on this one, and shows just how influential they've been when it comes to the genre of nu-metal. Everybody either copies off of Korn or Deftones.
6/5

10)Fireal: Good song. Nothing much to say about this one. Not the best on the album, but a great way to finish it off.
4/5

This album is tight. While I believe that Adrenaline is their best album, "Be Quiet & Drive", off Around The Fur, is probably the best song ever put out by Deftones. I suggest you check that out, and definitely check this one out also.

4-0 out of 5 stars Emo-core? No, this is metal. Deftones: Adrenaline review
This is metal. I don't get why some of the reviews call it emo? It isn't, this is real metal at its best. It is raw and unfiltered. It sounds very hard though! Note: This is a debut and not a lot of bands sound the same after their debut CD. So take that warning when you buy this CD! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Despite boasting an appellation better suited to a top-shelf flagellation magazine than an ear-scorching rock crew, the Los Angeles quintet Ultraspank pummel away with uncompromising metal belligerence. Their sophomore effort after changing their name from Indica in 1996 is a quantum leap forward from their eponymous 1998 debut. Leather-lunged vocalist Pete Murray careens from harmonic restraint to full-tilt throat abuse on the devastating "Crack." Incubus DJ Chris Kilmore joins the throng on "Stuck," which also benefits from the contributions of former Ozzy Osbourne knob-twiddler Peter Collins. Ultimately, Ultraspank relies on all-conquering force to steamroller listeners into abject submission. --Ian Fortnam ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Progression Indeed
Ultraspank have been one of my favorite bands since I first heard of them back in 1998 right before their debut CD came out. After purchasing the debut, I realized exactly how talented this Santa Barbara band was at making crushing riffs layed out over fast breakbeats. Well, after two years past, Ultraspank are at it again, delivering their brand of industrial hardcore with a new disc called Progress. It seems the perfect title for them, because of the great strides they have made on their live shows and their album production, though everything was already great. On this sophomore release, the vocals are more wailing than grunted Phil Anselmo style on the first one. I liked to compare them to the singing parts of Disturbed's David Draiman. The guitar riffs are still crushingly heavy, but not too hard as to not enjoy them. The bass lines are very brutal as well, but have a more jazzy feel to them. The drums are definitely the highlight of this band. They are fastly beating the whole way through, but do slow down occasionaly to accomadate the bass. Some of the highlights of this record are Push, Feed, Click, and Stuck (featuring DJ Chris Kilmore of Incubus). Though more downtuned than the last album, this still packs a punch. Other great bands to check out are Videodrone, Society 1, 20 Dead Flower Children, Drown, and Dope.

5-0 out of 5 stars 0WNED.
Few bands out there today (in any genre) have had a sophomore album with as much growth and power as Ultraspank's "Progress." Some of the best bands out there have released smashing debut albums only to followed up with a disappointing return effort. Ultraspank, if all indications are correct, has nowhere to go but up.

The opening track "Push" is a beautifully crafted song, delivering us the bass-driven grooves along with Pete Murray's stunning vocal range. Murray goes from melodic crooning to throaty screams in seconds, proving his versatility as a vocalist. And may I add that the addition of Snot alumnus James "Cornfed" Carroll on drums is obvious and very welcome from the first song on. James' laser-perfect timing and creativity give this band a real shot in the arm.

Other favorite tracks of mine are "Feed", "Smile", "Stuck" and Jackass. Ultraspank has proven that they are better musicians then half the drivel you hear on the radio today, and are primed to step up alongside Korn, Tool and others of the new metal sound.

Santa Barbara does it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars EVER HAVE THAT ONE CD THAT WON'T GO AWAY?
YOU KNOW WHICH ONE. ITS A CD YOU FORGET YOU HAVE UNTIL ONE DAY YOU'RE ALL "OH YEAH, I'LL PUT THIS IN SLOT 3 OF THE OLD CAR CD CHANGER." TWO MONTHS LATER YOU STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT CD IS IN SLOT 4 BECAUSE YOU KEEP LISTENING TO 3 OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THIS IS ULTRASPANK. A BAND THAT AT FIRST YOU JUST LIKE. BUT THEN YOU LISTEN TO IT. THEN AGAIN. NOW YOU HUM TO YOURSLEF IS "SOOOO IT HAS TO BE THIS WAAAAAY," WHEN YOU BEAT SOME GUY AT SOCOM II ONLINE. THEN THE GUY THAT CUTS YOU OFF ON THE BLVD GETS PULLED OVER AND AS YOU PASS THE FLASHING LIGHTS YOU GURGLE "YOU'RE NOT SO BIG, BOY."

PRETTY SOON YOU'RE HOLDING ULTRASPANK AS THE BENCHMARK TO WHICH YOU COMPARE ALL NEW BANDS ENCOUNTERED. EVEN BANDS THAT PREDATE THEM ARE NOT SAFE. NINE INCH NAILS BECOMES "ULTRASPANK SANS BAD-ASS GUITAR" EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY IS NOW REFERRED TO AS "ULTRASPANK-YOUNG MINUS LYRICS... PROGRAMMING." AND STABBING WESTWARD BECOMES "ULTRASPANK-LITE."

PEOPLE CALL THIS A TOOL-TRIBUTE BAND, AND, THOUGH THEIR STYLES ARE QUASI-SIMILAR, ULTRASPANK IS AS GOOD AS, IN ITS OWN WAY, THE ORIGINAL TOOL EVER WAS. GET THIS IF YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO LISTEN TO IT 4 TIMES ON NON-CONSECUTIVE OCCASIONS. DON'T GET IT IF YOU EVER WANT TO REMEMBER WHAT CD IS IN SLOT 4. AT $2.25, THERE'S PROBABLY MORE CHANGE IN YOUR COUCH THAT IT WOULD TAKE TO BUY THIS; SO BUY THIS. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best cd of 2000
I found out about Glassjaw through hearing about them signing to Roadrunner, and i wanted to check them out, and i also found out about how they appointed Ross Robinson to produce their cd. When i heard them, i was awe-struck, at mostly how real and emotional their music is. Well, the music is just absolutely amazing, Glassjaw would best fit under emocore, yet they are probably the best in the genre. Each song is filled with emotion. The guitars are just awesome, very talented guitarists. Pretty Lush is one of the highlight tracks, it is basically a hardcore song with beautiful sounding fillins and stuff. Ry Ry's Song is definately one of the best, it is a emo punk song, with a really nice "swirl" of guitar, and lots of melody, you'll be singing it, believe me, i know. Lovebites and Razorlines is definately a better track also, it has the really heavy parts with the awesome screaming vocals, then it breaks into a really nice touch of singing drums and guitars, another one you'll be singing. tracks 7-9 are all straightup emo songs, very well written songs, with beautiful singing and melodies. Babe is a straightup hardcore song as well. But the best track on this cd is Siberian Kiss, to briefly describe it, you can say that it is the most beautiful hardcore song ever heard". This song has the ever pounding drums, with the heavy and most beautiful guitars heard since.........i don't know. it is just the best cd ever released on Roadrunner, and for the year 2000. Buy this cd, or forever hold your peace.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glassjaw is Great!
I bought Glassjaw's "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" about a month and a half ago, and the first time I listened to it, I didn't love it. Then, I listened to it again, and I liked it. After that I listened to it, and I absolutely loved it. This is an amazing cd. It is the most emotional music I have ever heard in my life, every single song is totally full of emotion, and the music is really great too. My favorite songs are "Lovebites and Razorlines", "Siberian Kiss", "Ry Ry's Song", "Her Middle Name was Boom", and "Piano". All the songs are great, except "Hurting and Shoving" and "Babe". Oh yeah, they ACTUALLY sound NOTHING like the Deftones. "Motel of the White Locust" sort of does, but that's it, I have no idea what people are talking about, maybe it's because they toured with them it seems easy to compare them to Deftones. BUY THIS CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars This the emocore, i like to hear...
Yeah glassjaw has a unique sound and no can't deny it! I got this from a friends suggestion but i wasn't to sure if i should buy it...Let's just say, im glad i did. Great sing along songs and original lirycs rimends me of such bands like deftones,coheed and cambria, &,lost prophets, which i don't realy listen to any of them except for ca&co.All and all pretty much worth it... having great production and tight melodis with heartfelt songs.

Editorial Review

Combining the stop-start rhythms of Helmet, the hip-hop assault of Rage Against the Machine and the brooding vocals of Faith No More, Bakersfield, California band Korn concocted a golden formula that would reanimate the dormant corpse of heavy metal. The band's self-titled debut is a teenage-fantasy-endorphin-rush--a subversive noisefest as angry and hostile as Slayer but with a propulsive groove perfect for skateboarding, vandalism, or jumping up and down until you're nauseous. Songs like "Blind," "Clown," and "Shoots and Ladders" blend dark, bleak riffs with head-spinning guitar effects and scream-and-response choruses. But even at their most vitriolic, Korn imbue their blustery music with a cathartic element of fun.--Jon Wiederhorn ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD Kicks...
KoRn's self titled debut is hands down, not only KoRn's best but THE BEST CD OF ALL TIME! On this album Jon lets his feelings out to the whole world more than any other album, and mixed with the crushing guitars, throbbing bass and pounding drums you've got one kick... CD
Here are my track ratings:

1.Blind: Exellent opening track, starts out with David's cymbals and then the guitar and bass start to kick in until the explosion with the challenge "ARE YOU READY" 10/10

2.Ball Tongue: Nice song, has Jon's scatting like hell 9/10

3.Need To: Lots of screaming and "I HATE YOU"s on this one 9/10

4.Clown: AMAZING SONG, GREAT CHORUS VERY WELL WRITTEN AND GREAT RIFFS, one of my favorites 11/10

5.Divine: Fastest track on the CD, also the shortest one 9/10

6.Faget:GREAT SONG very open, not homophobic (not that i care), another one of my favorites along with clown 11/10

7.Shoots and Ladders: awesome song with bagpipe solo at the begining then the guitar, bass and drums kick in 9/10

8. Predictable: 2nd worst song on the album, kinda like creed 8/10

9.Fake: Another great song, and one of my favs but not as good as faget or clown 10/10

10.Lies: Worst song on the album, but anything from korn is still good 7/10

11.Helmet in the Bush: Creepy song, jon's mostly whispering, set's the mood for the closer Daddy 9/10

12.Daddy: This song is not for the faint of heart, about Jonathan Davis getting abused by someone when he was young but his parent never believed him, the song ends with Jonathan crying (literally), the most emotional song in the history of music 10/10
PICK UP THIS CD AS SOON AS U READ THIS REVIEW COME ON!

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Clowning Around
Korn has had a solid twelve year career built on heavy touring and a fanbase. This album recieved little or no attention from critics, MTV, or radio. The reason? Because it dared to step over the line, to go a little bit farther than the rest dared to go. People were scared of such a brave attempt. And what comes out from this explosive album is pure brilliance.

Blind - What a perfect intro for a CD. The quiet cymbol provided by David, and the signature line from Jonathan Davis: "Are you ready?!" And some of you may not be, most people weren't.

Ball Tongue - A great opening riff of heavy distortion. Jonathan's words are hardly audible, including a chorus where he sings nothing but gibberish.

Need To - At first a real dissapointment but as the song goes on, Jonathan basically saves the attempt.

Clown - With an avalanche of razorblade guitars and the first melodic moment on the CD, this is definately one of Korn's best songs.

Divine - Nothing but pure fast-paced heaviness. Awesome song

Faget - Jonathan gets emotional about his childhood on this beautifully crafted song. The sharp, heavy opening guitar riff is followed by tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the rest.

Shoots and Ladders - A surprise fade in from a pair of bagpipes played by none other than Jonathan Davis is met with a heavy repitious riff with pounding bass and drums. Jonathan spurts out some popular nurshrey ryhymes, with a chorus caiming: "Nurshrey rhymhes are said, verses in my head...look at the pages that cause all this evil" Definately one of the best on the CD

Predictable - The only big dissapointment, this song really ....

Fake - Great guitar hook at the end with weird vocals throught. Awesome

5-0 out of 5 stars best korn cd
This is an awesome debut by Korn, and in my opinion their best album. The music is so aggressive and fearless and I just love their signature sound.
Here are the best songs:

Blind- great opener and hit that started it all. Are u ready?

Clown- great guitars and overall kick ass song

Divine- great chorus and vocals and overall just awesome, possibly my favorite along with clown

Shoots and Ladders-nice change with the bagpipes, and i love the end with the thrashing guitars and drums

the other songs are all very good too, but i just mentioned these few because they are just awesome

Overall: this is a great cd with almost no flaws, that started a revolution in music ,new metal, too bad present day stuff isnt as good as this.

Buy this cd it is a classic! ... Read more

Editorial Review

After the release of the cross-pollinating metal landmark Roots, Brazilian metal giants Sepultura acrimoniously splintered, with frontman Max Cavalera--the instigator of the primal rhythms that made Roots such a ferocious prospect--striking out bravely with Soulfly. Their eponymous debut picks up where Roots left off, as "Bleed" opens with a fearsome patter of drums--and then the floodgates open with a seldom-rivaled burst of speed-metal riffing. By no means is this Cavalera standing still, though; Soulfly skips tempo with virtuosic ease, showing a loose affinity with the harshest grooves of crossover hip-hop/metal groups such as Korn. The aforementioned "Bleed" features a spittle-flecked rap from Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, and Chino Moreno of the Deftones turns up in "First Commandment" engaging in a duel with Cavalera. They're brave men, for few can take him on in his own turf. --Louis Pattison ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars cannot beat the original
awsome album!! some might say max and company made one angry album here but i call it passion. passionate about what the feel about the world. combining heavy music with tribal beats and instruments is a stroke of genius. no hope= no fear is my favorite song. i was never crazy about sepultura although i did like them but this is spectacular. some songs just make me weep they are so beautiful.
for the uninitiated, i do not know what to say. max cavelera had a band called sepultura from which he split. he formed soulfly and this is thier first album, an album full of rage, pain, hate, and anger. they combine some really wonderful drum, beats with some wicked heavy guitar playing both heavy and soft (note: soft for soulfly differs from soft for others) and add in some tribal elemets that give this album a different feel. using different instrumets such as bongos and sitars. some songs start heavy turn tribal and return to heaviness others stay heavy or soft throughout. such a breath of fresh air for music

5-0 out of 5 stars rocks!
I had never really listened o sepultara much,and really i did'nt know what to expect from this cd,but what i got was awesome.This album truly rocks,and the drums are amazing especially in the beggining of the song bleed as well as in bumba and first commandment.It's also cool how on the song tribe(which is one the best on the album)it starts off with some tribal beats and chanting and then kicks in to some powerful guitars and vocals.This album aso contains some great guest apperances by chino moreno of the deftones,fred durst and dj lethal of limp bizkit,and burton c.bell of fear factory.This album is charged with emotion and that's what makes it so good.Although some of that emotion comes from a tragedy,the loss of max's stepson,but that loss is what fuels the songs bleed and first commandment and also the loss of other ppl is what the song soulfly is for.That's kinda this albums theme,but tey're are many other songs that contain that same emotion just on different subjects.Thisis a great album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Of a great ERA ... Original Tribal Metal !
This album is of a great era where KoRn and LB were actually cool. Max Calavera and his 4 string guitar is soooo deep and full of bass. He is truely a pioneer in metal, especially when he mixes Brazilian tribal music and culture into the album. Even though the porteguese or brazilian (whatever he is speaking - Spanish?) I cannot understand, it adds culture and authenticity to Soulfly the album. I really enjoyed Soulfly - their bond and emphasis on family, personaly family and musical family. I believe after Lynn Strait (RIP) died, the guitarist came from his band, SNOT and other band members from other metal bands came to form Soulfly. Soulfly is a great combination of several musical styles within metal. They are surely very original and their music gleams of beauty and energy. Soulfly's heaviness is aggressive and totally beautiful to listen to. Check this out if you like Sepultura, old LB, old KoRn, or just are curious. A great album that is definately worth your time. Plus I believe its a dual cd package that comes with remixes and live performances - great! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars They Put Limp Bizkit to Shame
What's wrong with music today? In an age where so called rap-metal bands such as Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock are blasted non-stop on the radio and MTV, bands like (hed)pe, with twice as much talent, are unknown. It truly boggles the mind. (Hed) is one of the only bands to successfully combine elements of metal with rap. Their energy is absolutely incredible and they sound great. This whole album is excellent and I world be hard pressed to choose a favorite song, but Serpent Boy, Firsty, and TOS are probably my favorites. (!Cliche alert!) MCUD really can flow and lay down some dope rhymes. I know that sounds really stupid, but it's true. ... Perhaps one day, (Hed) will gain commercial success in the vein of Bizkit or Korn, but I doubt it. And in a way, I'm glad. Ordinary TRL viewers probably couldn't compehend music of this caliber. Watch out for (Hed)'s 2nd album, "Broke" out on August 22nd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can I get an "Awwww Yeahhh! " ?
This disc f'in rocks my world. Thanks to the Strangeland soundtrack, I felt the desire to check these guys out further... and I was not disappointed! (hed)pe brings forth the inevitable Limp Bizkit comparisons, and LB fares _Badly_ in this light. With good solid rapping, great lyrics and some booty-bouncing, hip-hop/metal riffing, (hed)pe emerge as the better band in terms of musical talent and lyric writing.

The album rocks from beginning to end. "POS" and "Ground" lead smoothly into "Serpent Boy", which is explosive and features some awesome transitions from hyper-rapped verses to mega-rock-riff choruses. "Tired of Sleep" features a more laid back groove laid down over eerily haunting high pitched guitar licks.

Other excellent tracks are "Schpamb", "Ken 2012", "33" and "Hill". "IFO" has fast become one of my favorite, featuring some of the most awesome lyrics I have ever heard. It sounds like the X-Files episode written by the staff of High Times!

All in all, this band can hold it's own against any of the new metal bands out there, Rage Against the Machine included. Rage owns, but so does (hed)pe. I think the future for these guys is blindingly bright, and I would highly recommend this record to people out there with open minds who don't blindly cling to allegiance with one band.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great!
The first full-length album from 6-piece rap-metal band (hed) p.e. is a great effort. Though what they bring to the table is nothing new, what they do, they do very well. Frontman M.C.U.D. is a notch above all the other nu-metal frontman with his energy, slick rapping, vocals and lyrics that explore planetary evolution, religion, the paranormal, sex, and racism while still being quite amusing. Drummer B.C. is an excellent drummer that doesn't rely on the DJ to make all the beats for him (not on this album, anyway), while DJ product provides some cool scratches and samples throughout. Bassist Mawk makes some funky rhythms in back and guitarist duo Wessyle and Chizad provide the heaviness this album needs and work best together here. This CD contains elements of Hip-Hop, metal, punk, reggae, and even some tribal. If you're not completely sick of rap-metal then this is some good stuff that should keep you banging your head for a while. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fear Factory's Best
well when i bought this cd i didnt know too much about Fear Factory but i had heard some of their songs and decided to buy Demanufacture.At first i felt like i shouldnt have bought it but after a few more listens i loved the cd.I can honestly say this is one of the best metal albums ever.The songs are brutal and melodic at once.Burton C. Bell is a great vocalist.He can growl and yell,and he can sing melodically.This album blends Melodic Death Metal with industrial and it really works.Dino is a great guitar player and his riffs on this album are heavy as hell.some of the key tracks on this album are Demanufacture,its a nice brual song and a good way to start the album,Replica is another hard song with a great rhythm and even some melodic sections and vocals.Pisschrist is another hard song that also has some melodies.H-K hunter killer is another good one.A therapy For Pain is the slowest most melodic and moving sonf on the album.it has synthesizers and melodic vocals the whole way through...........But the very best song on the cd is Self Bias Resistor,it has it all melody,brutallity,heavy riffs,amazing double bass drumming(i cant forget to mention that Raymond Herrera is one of the best drummers i have ever heard,extemely fast it just dosent quit)in all i think that anyone who enjois great metal should buy this classic Fear Factory album and listen to it loud in a dark room with nothing to disturb their listening experiance.

5-0 out of 5 stars The machine is now alive
Brutal, tight, furious. These are the proper words to describe this industrial-metal masterpiece. In my other reviews I've already stated that "Demanufacture" is one of the four albums that elevated industrial-metal genre from zero level to state-of-the-art perfection and spawned countless clones.

Fear Factory style is different from what other icons of the genre like Ministry or Nine Inch Nails have to offer. After all, in the beginning Fear Factory played Napalm Death-style death-metal, and it shows. The music is built with incredibly catchy and rhythmically effective guitar riffs backed by similar sounding bass-lines. Think of the riff in Ministry's "Thieves" and you get the idea. Drumming is absolutely superb. The speed and precision of those double-bass kicks is incredible, I even thought it was a drum-machine. But it was not. To add even more industrial feel to the sound, various factory noises are played in the background. Burton C. Bell varies his vocal tone from angry death-style rasps to clean anthemic singing. The latter, being sound-processed with a little reverb, makes the record sound kinda epic at times. The album is a relentless sonic attack, that, being played at considerable volume settings, has all the power to knock you off your feet and shatter glass windows.

Conceptual lyrics add more depth to the album. They tell a story of a man who grew tired of government lies and started up a rebellion. In the end he turns into a killing machine, then surrenders to regret, but when death comes, it refuses to take him away, so he has yet another day to live. Not the finest story, but it mixes with aggressive industrial music perfectly.

This album is one of the landmarks of rock, and surely Fear Factory's finest hour. If you are even mildly interested in metal or industrial music, you must give a listen to "Demanufacture".

PS I found myself among those few people who actually liked the remix albums "Remanufacture" and "Remanufacture v2.001". I think it shows the diversity of this band excellently, because I can't think of anybody else who feel themselves perfectly at home as with death-metal and grindcore, as with industrial, breakbeat or digital hardcore. While the lyrical integrity is lost in remixing, yet the music is good. Underground dancefloor DJs might also take notice.

Editorial Review

As good as Orgy's 1998 debut Candyass was, Vapor Transmission (2000) kicks things up a notch.The Los Angeles-based five-piece goes straight for the jugular this time, abandoning new wave covers and creating a few fresh classics along the way. The result sounds like Depeche Mode after several consecutive viewings of Blade Runner: edgy, moody, and armed to the teeth with enough sonic bombast to jumpstart techno-goth fans everywhere. Vocalist Jay Gordon's hoarse histrionics are perfect for the band's surreal paranoia and lust; imagine a romanticism with room for lyrics such as "Transglobal spectacle with post mortem and fame / Popsicle cannibal, can you hear me?" The production by Skinny Puppy's Dave "Rave" Ogilvie is a bright purple fluid that turns Orgy's blood into a deep murk, dark but dazzling. While Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson may be the most prominent techno-rockers, Orgy's Transmissions are louder and clearer.--Jason Josephes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Using past and present, Orgy have made the future of music.
I've never given an album five stars on here before, but I believe I have finally found a more than worthy CD to take that honor. Orgy's "Vapor Transmission" is an absolutely stunning accomplishment -- a wild fushion of keyboards, hard rock, creative production, and great vocals. It blows away their debut album and just about any other hard rock CD released so far this year. What makes this album -- and Orgy in general -- so effective is how they take many elements of 80's music, like synths and keyboards, and weld them to catchy late 90's metal, an approach that produces some truly epic songs here. And in an age when nearly every modern metal band has a rapper for a singer and a DJ they don't really need, Orgy stand out for creating smooth, textured music than is nonetheless aggressive without lapsing into meaningless rap shouts.

There really isn't a single dud on "Vapor Transmission". After the intro song, Orgy blast into action with "Suckerface", a heavy song with a catchy rhythm and subtle keyboards. From there, it's almost all gravy: the beatiful "Fiction", the gorgeous ballad "Eva", and the haunting "Re-creation" are among some of the best moments. All of the songs have memorable, interesting touches, and the whole thing closes out with a bang with "Where's Gerrold?", a blazing slice of perfectly executed metallic fury. Throughout the album, Orgy throw out every trick in the book to give the music maximum impact: weird vocal effects, string instruments, breakbeats, and moments of remarkable passion from singer Jay Gordon. At times, all the effects risk overwhelming the music and can seem gimmicky, but it's refreshing to see a band go too far to please the listener instead of not going far enough.

All in all, if you're a fan of Orgy's first album, modern metal in general, or even some 80's music, you'd be insane not to pick up "Vapor Transmission". Unlike most CDs, it gets better the more you listen to it instead of worse, a great rarity in these times. And if you can, see them perform live some time. They are more than capable of producing this tricky, complex music live, and they put on one of the best shows you'll ever see.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning, I can't get enough
I've had my Orgy CD's kind of set aside for the past year or so. I sort of wandered off into other music and sort of forgot about them. I popped this into my CD player the other day to listen to it, and I must say, it sounds JUST as good as it did the first day it came out. All of the songs are so seamlessly perfect. The lyrics are extremely improved and there is so much more melody than what was found in Candyass (Another great album, mind you). I feel this album sort of got the short end of the stick as far as sales go. Candyass was supported by two high played singles, whereas Vapor Transmission wasn't such a success. I'm extremely surprised mostly because the first single "Fiction (Dreams In Digital)" was easily one of the best songs of the year. It's a shame too. I'm really disappointed that not enough people gave this album it's fair chance. It really is stunning. My favorite songs are Fiction, Eva, Suckerface and Eyes/Radio/Lies. If you don't own this CD already, I suggest you go out and get it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A head trip to listen to.
I bought this cd thinking, "ohh it is going to be just like candyass (the first orgy cd, buy it.)." But when I got into my car and put it in I was amazed to hear how much better it was in sound. The mix of Jay's vocals with Paiges' bass and Amir on the V-synth was just astounding. This cd will not dissapoint you. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I like it no matter what anybody says
Hearing that Cold and Staind were from Flip records (Fred Durst's owned record label), you would probably expect them two to be of the nu-metal genre and rap rock hybrids. Well, I actually always knew they weren't because my radio station used to play "Just Got Wicked", but then it got killed. WELL, I'm happy this CD is securely with me. I like how Scooter yells like that when it's only the first song and expects you to think this is heavy.

She Said starts out with a piano intro and gets into a better melody. It's pretty cool. Especially when you hear depressing songs like "No One" (If you don't beilieve that it's not, then find out the words) could be found on the same album as dark as "Send in the Clowns" (especially makes you think that when you hear the guitars) or "Anti-Love Song" (I even knew it would be from the title, also "Witch", but Cold is somewhat strange at times).

Then this ends with the acoustic track, "Bleed". The guest vocalitst on the song is Aaron Lewis of Staind. This is a lot better than that "Outside" live version though.

Don't buy albums because of titles, but their music quality. That's the only way to appreciate this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just get wicked...
Why is it that the bands that Fred Durst finds are better than Limp Bizkit? First there was Staind, and now there's Cold. What's the best way to describe Cold? It's sort of like Creed meets Nine Inch Nails meets Staind. One thing you need for a band with such dark and heavy riffs is a nice, deep voice, and Scooter's got that. I'm glad Durst (who was one of the album's producers, along with ex-NINer Chris Vrenna) convinced Scooter to sing, instead of scream, because he's got such a deep voice, and it works with the band's sound quite well. He does scream at times, but I think he does to get your attention. Arguably, the best track on here is the first song, Just Got Wicked, my favorite song on the CD, but there's several other good ones worth mentioning, including She Said (which begins with an cool and eerie piano intro), No One, Send In The Clowns, and, one of my favorites, the dark, Anti Love Song. Cold is one of the better breakthroughs of 2000, and I can't wait to hear more. Check this one out if you like Staind, NIN, Deftones or Orgy.

4-0 out of 5 stars This lacks just one thing...
The first time I ever even heard of Cold, I saw their music video for "Bleed" featuring Aaron Lewis of Staind. I loved it, it was an absolutely beautiful song, one thing in particular that I loved the most about it was the acoustic strings, and or..backup violins. When I purchased "13 Ways to Bleed on Stage" I loved the entire album, and once I hit the last song, I was greatly disappointed. Oddly enough, the last song, is "Bleed." It was exactly how it was in the music video, minus...the acoustic strings (violins) in the background, which made the song as beautiful as it was. This disappointed me a bit, because without the backup violins, the song doesn't really have the same type of feeling to it as it does with them.
I think the violin version is a music video exlcusive version, because i've searched for it everywhere, and I cannot find it at all. If anyone knows if it's on any Cold CD or even if an mp3 of it exists, email me at mansonchyld@hotmail.com

Well...minus what the song is missing, it's an alright song, but doesn't measure up to the strings version, which probably doesn't even truely exist. The entire 13 Ways album is good, but if you've seen the video for "Bleed" and you're inspired by it, to get the album...think twice, what's on the album, isn't the same version of the song at all as what you're seeing on the music video. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this now
This Cd is nothing short of amazing, they put Limp Bizkit to shame. Im not even gonna try to pick a favorite song, they are all so good. If youre a fan of the hip-hop metal style, this is the Cd for you. Its too bad their singer, Lynn Strait, died in a car accident. They were so close to becoming huge. Thankfully, the former members are doing other projects. Mikey Doling and Sonny Mayo, the guitarists, are in Soulfly and Amen, Tumor the bass player is also in Amen, and Jaime Miller, the drummer is in Hero. Too bad that none of these groups come close to sounding as good as Snot. Do yourself a favor and get this Cd right now, because it will become one of your favorites, and you'll see what a great band they were and how good Lynn Strait was. R.I.P.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brightest flame burns quickest
Snot were the best of the new metal bands. Their album almost captures the furious intensity of their live shows, but it could never fully substitute for seeing the boys live. Songs like "Joyride" and "Deadfall" showcase their amazing musical talent (as well as Lynns f-ed up sense of humor) at high-speed velocity, while "Get Some" is a grim trip into the creepy depths of self-doubt.

We all will miss Lynn and Dobbs forever... people who are Snot fans NEED to go to loudside.com/snot and see the next album that's coming out. "Get Some" is better than both of Limp Bizkit's albums combined, and the more people we tell about Snot, the more Lynn and Dobbs will live on in our hearts.

"Tecato" recounts Lynn's struggles with heroin, something he beat before fate took him from us. Put this disc in your player, crank it to 11, and rock the f**k out one more time for Lynn. And even if Amen aren't as good as Snot was, buy the record anyway. Support Mikey, Sonny, Tumor, Jamie and Fed.

Lynn, we miss you.

5-0 out of 5 stars GOOD Nu-metal
Looking back on Snot's short history (due to the death of front man James Lynn Strait), one can realize that they did the impossible, they made actual GOOD nu-metal. At the time, Limp Bizkit was a small chord-rock (yes, it's true, hard to believe isn't it?) band who were just starting to make waves, and Korn was well on their way to becoming a house hold name. Following right behind the two was Snot, a band who deserved even more fame than Korn & Bizkit acheived.

Lynn Strait was a great front man and an amazing live performer. The band, in particular Mike Smith were some of the most talented musicians in the metal scene at the time. They had all the potential in the world to be something huge.

(...)"Get Some" starts off with the heavy "Snot", a model for modern hard rock, or "nu metal". Only this song is good. It's something Limp Bizkit might have made, had they not become soul-less corporate rock puppets. "Stoopid" and "Joy Ride" both keep up the fast pace, the latter being the better of the two, with lyrics that are kind of eerie, given how Lynn died.

"I Jus' Lie", "My Ba!!s", "Mr. Brett" and "Get Some" are all fun-loving heavy metal anthems. Which is the best part of the CD, they never really took themselves serious (as they'd explain whenever they were asked where they got their name from) and instead just made music because they enjoyed playing. The charm of that rubs off on you as you listen and made this quite possibly the best nu-metal album ever. ... Read more
