Zeitgeist

ESCAPE FEROCITY, Zeitgeist Magazine
In finest pseud fashion, The Wasp Factory define themselves as :”…to one degree or another as sitting in the many grey areas where alternative rock meets contemporary electronica.”This is the third album album proper from the Chaos Engine, tragically named after some old dodgy computer game.Surprisingly liked by the goth community, the Chaos Engine actually specialise in industrial techno rock crossover like the lamentable Pitchshifter, firmly allying themselves to the Front 242, Cubanate,Front Line Assembly et al camp.

This CD, however, does make attempts to stretch the concept taking in chunks of power metal and ambient, with 23 tracks.

The Chaos Engine are happy to fire their musical loads all over the landscape, and are a refreshing change in the homogenised and stereotypical world of industrial music. We like.
