Psyclon Nine - INRI
American Electro project, Psyclon Nine, found success in Europe with their first release on the aggressive EBM label Noitekk, and now have crossed back over to North America, licencing their follow up release, INRI, with Metropolis Records. INRI is a brutal attack on religion, specifically the hypocrisies of Christianity. Its a perfect release for all those kids who want to piss the fuck out of their parents, and especially good for us that are assaulted for a month by the capitalistically manipulated seasonal bullshit at the end of each year. So you see, all is well, and Psyclon Nine do an excellent job of hard edge electro with only vocal limitations interfering with complete enjoyment. The only real problem I have is that the singer uses pretty much the same vocal distortion on all of the tracks. There is no need, or I believe, demand for this, and yet here it is. Why?
This questioned is dulled by the last track, which confuses our questions with a tasty treat; a cover of Ministry's You Know What You Are. Psyclon Nine's interpretation is excellent and serves to blur our complaints concerning the vocals from the rest of the release.
