In pre-order: brand new MENTALLO & THE FIXER album !
After a chasm of almost 4 years, one of the most influential American electro/industrial bands of the last 15 years: MENTALLO & THE FIXER broke the silence with the mind-boggling EPCD "Commandments For The Molecular Age", forecasting the band’s second phase of electronic anger. Having always been projecting himself into the future throughout his impressive career and discography, Gary Dassing once again carries us away from the beaten path, bringing us this time closer to the darkest side of the Moon than to the core of the Earth… Avant-garde per definition and dense and powerful per nature, MENTALLO & THE FIXER’s new sound offering is challenging the listener with its ultra-complex synth arrangements layered on devastating upbeat sequencer rhythms and haunted distorted vocals.
“Enlightenment Through A Chemical Catalyst” is a hell of an album. It will make your head turn and will guarantee some crazy disturbing listens when you try to perceive the light through the foggy complexity and poignant darkness of the album’s ultra stereo sample collages, rapid sequence changes and hard cutting beats. To date, no single human brain has been reported able to absorb all details of this dense and detailed production, even after 10 listens. Take up the challenge for yourself and dive into the extreme ambience of this album that will illuminate all hardcore fans of SKINNY PUPPY, DOWNLOAD or yet Uwe Schmidt.
Gary Dassing wrote here the ultimate soundscape of the post-apocalypse… Let the first flowers grow again after the flood, and let the intense electronic sounds blow away your mind on MENTALLO & THE FIXER’s blasting stereo sound system! Headphone listening recommended for the sonic experience of your terrestrial life…
