With the band name ĎExplode Your Brainí and a picture of a cyborgís head blowing-up on the front cover of the CD, I knew that this band was going to be aggressive. And thatís exactly what they are.

This band creates hard and heavy noisy industrial music featuring chaotic malfunctioning electronic sounds, noises and effects while screaming mad distorted male vocals yell over everything. But even amidst all of the mayhem there are a lot of creative and interesting elements to be heard.

This music is a blend of industrial, noise and experimental all rolled into one to deliver an outcome that is somewhat entertaining in its own twisted and bizarre way. While Iím usually not the biggest fan of this style of music, I have to give credit where credit is due. The tracks here are well developed and offer a lot of variety within them. There is a lot of sound layering and inventive ideas throughout.

While this album isnít for everyone, I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in noisy chaotic industrial music.
