so often a band seemingly comes out of nowhere and really surprises
me. Carphax Files is one of those bands. Jsin Marx
and Vecha are the duo behind the music, and really offer some great
electro-industrial and EBM on this album.
The CD starts off strong with the smasher "Machine" that pummels
you right away with manic programming, crunchy bass beats and slightly
altered angry vocals. Track two "Another Chance To Kill" shows
another side of the band with a somewhat mellower sound and clear sung
vocals. The remainder of the CD plays out similar to these first two
songs. You're given angry and aggressive electro-industrial assaults
as well as slightly lighter club EBM.
What I like so much about this band is that they blend old school
elecro-industrial with a modern EBM edge that allows for their music to
be both fierce and catchy all at the same time. Basically, this is what
I expect modern industrial music to sound like. Part old, part new, all
Now go buy this CD and crank the song "Solution" extremely
loud. I can almost guarantee that you won't be able to sit still while
listening to it. This entire album is infectious from beginning to end.
