text 4 Mar :CD Review: MALAKWA - Street Preacher

MALAKWA – Street Preacher
Release Date: February 25, 2011
Label: Alfa-Matrix
Website: malakwa.com

Review by: Michael Faries

Out of the depths of Marseilles, France, charge the self-described ‘digital punks’ MALAKWA with their sophomore effort, Street Preacher, an in-your-face electro/punk collage.  Now signed to the label Alfa Matrix with the likes of Unter Null and Front 242, MALAKWA may finally get the exposure that they deserve. 

It might be necessary right off the bat to describe the vocal sound of the band, seeing as this might make or break the listener’s opinion of the band anyway.  Think: the shouting and enthusiasm of Atari Teenage Riot, with a more accessible and assembled club-friendly approach.

text 1 Mar 1 note :Music News: Tits, guns and gasoline on Malakwa video ‘Make up your rules’ NSFW

Out now is the newest Malakwa album “Street preacher”. To celebrate the release the band finished a smashing video for the track “Make up your rules”. Be warned, it’s NOT worksafe but it’s a pleasure to watch for sure!

The video from our French electro punk terrorists was shot by Fabien Laubry with a team of no less of 15 people. The first scenes were shot in an abandoned garage in the middle of a forest where a gang houses led by Purple (Garage Babe). And it’s also there where we find Benoit and Sylvain from Tamtrum displaying their best behavior.

text 1 Mar 1 note CD Review: My Enemy Complete – My Enemy Complete

My Enemy Complete – My Enemy Complete
Released:  January 11, 2011
Label: Radio-Active-Music
Website:  myenemycomplete.com

Review by:  Neska Lapicki


The self-titled EP from Washington DC area band My Enemy Complete is, in a word, magical. A genuinely genre-bending exercise in soul mining. Combining heavy electronics with the organic fire of live guitar and drums, vocals you can actually understand, and lyrics that are about your life and mine.  MEC call to mind echoes of that moment in high school where you suddenly realized there was so much more out there than what you’d been listening to. Originally formed in 2004 as a side project, My Enemy Complete came to full fruition in 2008 when guitarist Carlo Pizarro joined founding members singer/guitarist Bilaal Y and drummer Brian Fasani. Their former projects dissolved, they endeavored to cut ties with the past and  fully develop an original new band.

text 1 Mar CD Review: Individual Industry – Dreams Never End

Individual Industry – Dreams Never End
Released:  January 3, 2011
Label:  Wave Records
Website: myspace.com/individualindustry

Review by:  William Dashiell Hammett

Individual Industry has started in the late 80s when Alex Twin began to work on his first demos.  Over the next 25-plus years other partners came and went before Maurizio Bonito joined to stabilize the line-up for Dreams Never End, the bands first release in over fourteen years.  Utilizing no less then nine guest vocalists from both Europe and their native Brazil, the musical style that has resulted is hard to define.
