Realize – Machine Violence (2020)

Machine Violence is a breath of fresh air. Don’t get me wrong, if I wanted to be a cunt I could say that Realize sound like a mix of Decline & Fall era Godflesh, and something like Static X, but this is industrial metal folks, and it’s pretty difficult to not be derivative. When I say a breath of fresh air – I mean, when was the last time an industrial record was pushed by a label like this?

Machine Violence is great. It has the aesthetic, the chunky sound and the hopeless vocals. My one complaint is that the percussion elements like cymbals etc are just completely eaten up in the high end hiss, but I suppose this just adds to the machine-like nature of the beast.
