Dolls Of Pain are taking a new direction on their upcoming album “The Last Conflict, ” which is the French trio’s fourth album in order.
The industrial metal touch (introduced on the EP “Strange Kiss’ late last fall), has been given additional space on the new album from the band which previously had pretty strict electronic influences. Singer and songwriter Notre Guide focuses his lyrics on the man’s constant self-torture, and the divisions and conflicts we all know so well again.

This is a short trailer for Rabbit Ears Audio SFX Library, REA_004 Metal Machines.
I visited a shop whose primary focus is repairing old steam locomotives and building replicas for use around the country (Thomas The Tank Engine is big business). This library features 11 pre-1950s tools that will get your motor running and add texture to your mechanized needs. I hired a machinist to perform the following mechanical masterpieces of the industrial age: Wheel Lathe, Metal Planer, McCabe Metal Flanger, Metal Shaper, Summit Engine Lathe, Summit Engine Rapid Traverse, Hendy Engine Lathe, Vertical Turret Lathe, Bridgeport Milling Machine, Large Air Needle Scaler, Small Air Needle Scaler.
All of the machines have such wonderful qualities that smooth computer-controlled contemporary machines don’t possess. Metal Machines is here to bring on the flap, whirr, grind and whine that your work needs.

Matt Finale is soon back with his industrial noise project Caustic. For the new album “The Golden Vagina Of Fame And Profit”, he has taken the help of Ned Kirby (known from Stromkern), Unwoman, Bitch Brigade and the Lord’s Head.
Caustic saw the light through the debut EP was “I Am On Fire” in 2004 and the debut album came two years later when Matt by Static Sky Records released “Unicorns, Kittens and Shit”. An album that reached number one on Metropolis Records mailorder list. The project was signed at the same time Ben Arp’s Crunch Pod Records. Since 2006, Caustic released five albums, several singles and appeared on several well known compilations.
“The Golden Vagina Of Fame And Profit” is released April 12 via Metropolis Records.
Rudy Ratzinger, who debuted with his project Wumpscut back in 1993, is arguably one of the electronic industrial scene’s greatest luminaries and has been an inspiring source of information many new bands through the years. Wumpscut’s early albums “Music for a Slaughering Tribe” remains a classic. Beyond that, Rudy released another 17 albums with the project. Now it’s time again. “Schrekk & Gaus” is the sequel to last year’s “Siamese” and the album is released in three editions, a regular CD, a special vinyl edition and a limited box with extra kind of frippery.
“Schrekk & Grau,” released April 22 via Betonkopf Media.

The Neon Judgement remains one of the most legendary electronic bands in history. They for sure were one of the pioneers of the so-called dark electro and other EBM movement. Together with bands like Front 242, The Klinik, à Grumh, SA42 and A Split Second they still are the proud of many Belgian electro lovers. After a hiatus of several years The Neon Judgement struck back and mainly concentrated on live performances. It took them years to dare launching a new album. This album entitled “Smack” was a real nice surprise seeing the duo transposing their typical 80s sound into a more modern approach. Months later now appears this “Smack”-baby, which is an EP featuring 8 tracks. We here get 6 remixes and 2 original versions. The American artist DJ 3000 produced two remixes of “The Great Consumer” (originally released on the CD). Both remixes are quite well-crafted, but I have some preference for the groovy opener. Christopher Kah made an appreciable remix of “Leash” and Bodyspasm (Belgian project) together with Dirk Da Davo made a pretty cool and technoid version of “I Cut Loose”. Radical G is the big fish from this EP and it’s not really a surprise that this artist transposed “We Are confused” (originally released on the CD as well) into a terrific, minimal technoid cut reaching a total climax in the break of the song. The “3 D Re-Edit” of “Smack” was made by Dirk Da Davo. The mix is quite recognizable and logically the most close to the original version. The result is a kind of technoid-wave mixture. The two songs left are the ‘original versions’ from “Leash” and “The Great Consumer”, which bring us back to the real mood and style of the “Smack”-CD. This EP has been quite logically released on Dancedelic D(igital), home of Neon Electronics (dance side-project of Dirk Da Davo). “Smack”-EP brings The Neon Judgement transposed into technoid-orientated remixes. It’s an experience that might make the earliest fans a bit skeptical, but it also reveals the vision of a band facing the current trends.
Andy LaPlegua (inter alia, Combichrist, Panzer AG, Icon Of Coil) has for some time been working with his new side project Scandinavian Cock. The first material is now on its way through the American Metropolis Records with four-track EP was “Uncut”, which also contains a cover of The Dead Boys classic “Sonic Reducer”.
With Scandinavian Cock we are given a small electronic and clear punkier version of the multi-faceted Andy LaPlegua. Something that is not particularly surprising since the Norwegian in his career been active in most of the music scene in Finland. He made industrial rock with the Devils Into Crime, experimented with hip-hop during his time with the LAW, with punk bands Fleshfire and My Right Choice and even metal with Lash Out. In addition, he also worked with trance and club music, with projects including Sector9 and Plastic Life.
EP was “Uncut” released on 24 January via Metropolis Records.
