“Industrial Complex” is NITZER EBB’s 6th studio album to date, once again produced by Flood (EDITORS, DEPECHE MODE, …) and featuring guest vocals by DEPECHE MODE’s songwriter Martin L. Gore on the song “Once You Say”. The sound is back to the roots, read: oldschool EBM ! The band signed to the Belgian electronic music label Alfa Matrix for Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Italy and Luxemburg (in collaboration with Major Records). This special “Belgian” edition released by Alfa Matrix features a bunch of exclusive remixes not available on any other version of “Industrial Complex”.
We were all anxiously waiting for this NITZER EBB reunion album since the band’s highly successful come back on stage a couple of years ago, as well as some recent promising appearances on various film and television (Saw IV, Saw VI, NCIS, Fringe…) soundtracks and other video games (Tony Hawk: RIDE). On “Industrial Complex”, Douglas McCarthy and Bon Harris go back to their roots and mix NITZER EBB’s own sound signature made of pounding bass rhythms, upbeat electro sequences and menacing vocals. Intense, powerful, straight and catchy, this new album presents the band’s many new hits including “Promises”, “Once You Say”, “Payroll” or yet “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”.
On top of that, Alfa Matrix offers a free extra label compilation with each order. Good to know, included on this compilation is a brand new song by the old school ebm act Pouppee Fabrikk amongst many others.
