Transhuman 2.0
Bitriot Records

This two disc set of hard industrial tunes is actually performed by an actual band, not one guy with a computer, midi keyboard and a few other effects toys. Nothing wrong with that of course, but on stage, this foursome actually have more to do than stand behind one synth and scream into a microphone. The live feel of bass, guitars, vocals and of course keyboards are much better eye candy if you ask me. The music is definitely on the harsh side (no synth pop here) and the lyrics are about the inevitable melding of man and technology as part of our natural evolutionary process. The second disc also adds some remixes into the song line-up as well. With 28 tracks to choose from this is a splendid deal from a darn good American industrial act.
