This review really took me some time to come up with since for the most part I really had a hard time grasping the music on this disc. Void is certainly a band that challenges you to fit them into a genre and at the end of trying you just give up.
The band is comprised of just two individuals, OCD and Ionman. I don’t think I can call them a band per say since most of this album sounds electronic rather than actual instruments being played. Some of you may recognize the name OCD from some of his remix work for Zyklon or Red Harvest and this gives a pretty good idea of the sound of this album. The sound is very industrial at its core and with all the different sounds going on within each song it really gives the impression of a remix. The promo material didn’t say whether any actual instruments were used or if it was all just programmed but I can say for certain the drum machine is pretty obvious. I really don’t know what else to say about this album to try and describe it. The bottom line is I really didn’t care for this album since I actually like hearing instruments being played. In the albums defense though I can say I have never heard anything quite like this.
Overall I would have to say the futuristic industrial type sound is obviously not for me but if you are into very experimental style music you may find this of some interest. Certainly something you may want to give a listen to before buying.
