After the critically acclaimed 'Babylon' album and the dark ambient album 'Solipsism', TPROE
is back on the forefront of industrial music with the album 'Machine district'. Though not a concept album like the previous ones, this album does fit in well with the critical, libertarian and transhumanist views TPROE
is known for.
'Machine District' holds 12 tracks, with a lot stompey 4 to the floor technoid industrial tracks, but also some surprises like the Skinny Puppy
meets George Clinton
track 'Automation test', the Witchhouse from 'Stay behind', which was written together with Dead Hand Projekt
, and distorted dancehall and noisy drum & bass.
All in all 'Machine district' combines the rich experimental sound of 'Babylon' with the sheer stompathon of 'Singularity' without giving in to the bad hardstyle which is mistaken for industrial nowadays. 'Machine district' will be a treat for all those who like their industrial harsh, painfull and rude. TPROE
goes beyond man-machine and chooses the machine as the future. The soundtrack for a world where skynet or the cylons are the masters.
