With squelch and emission drone that can be so abstract that you may think your household appliances are trying to tell you something, it's potency lies in the b-side's hammering incessance that lobs Factums into their glorious fold alongside fellow misanthropes and cohorts, The Intelligence and Pyramids. While industrial music hasn't had a real resurgence that's made an impact like its initial footprint with Although the first side of the album may draw long on it's instrumental proto-Cabaret VoltaireThrobbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions in the mid 70's, the current blossoming crop of contumacious and anti-image based 'bands' like Factums and their melodically corrupt circle of conspirators could easily be the original formula's righteous second coming, if not just a jagged stab in the right direction. Don't be expecting Ministry-type stuff with Factums, but think more atmospheric and unilaterally apocalyptic, cross-wired with a lo-fi punk anchoring that keeps the Wax Trax fans scratching their receding hairlines in wonder and amazement.
