This is the first band to be signed to Marilyn Manson's Posthuman Records label. He's also executive producer for this CD. Knowing these things along with seeing the picture of the four band members on the back of the CD case all wearing gothic face make-up, I already had an idea of what their music was going to sound like before I even listened to it. Yes, Godhead is a commercial sounding industrial rock band that do indeed sound similar to other acts such as Marilyn Manson, Orgy and Uranium 235. However, they do manage to bring enough of their own unique elements to the table to allow them to stand out of the pack. Their music is a good blend of guitars, bass, drums and electronic programming. It switches between heavy rocking to calmer moments constantly to deliver a lot of different moods and emotions. Also, the band's singer, Jason Miller, has a great voice with a lot of range. He sings deep, rough and melodically during the course of each song contained here. But while he follows the flow of the music well, it would have been nice if he let loose and shouted out in pure aggressive anger every once in a while to mix things up a little more. The first five songs on this album "The Reckoning", "I Sell Society", "Inside You", "Sinking" and "Tired Old Man" are the best offered here in my opinion as they are constructed very well with a lot of changes and diversity. The songs "Eleanor Rigby" and "I Hate Today" are also very good, but are lacking the industrial edge a bit. Unfortunately, the songs "Break You Down", "Penetrate", "Backstander" and "2000 Years Of Human Error" bring the album down a bit. This is due to the fact that they are a bit funky and sound too similar to Marilyn Manson. These songs are still good, but not quite as good as the other seven songs presented here. This band seems to be at their best when they're rocking solid with good verses and catchy chorus' with a more serious edge and better direction. The bottom line is that there really isn't a bad track to be found on this album. It's just that some do stand out more than others. But that's true for most albums. If you enjoy commercial industrial rock music such as Gravity Kills, Marilyn Manson, Orgy, Stabbing Westward, Uranium 235, etc. you will most likely enjoy this Godhead CD as well.
