Desolation - Fields of Victory
Industrial Hardcore, Rhythmic Noise Hoooooly fuck! HOLY FUCK! Desolation sure knows how to open up an album and have you within industrial hardcore hell in just two minutes. First song "Black Buddha" opens with dark ambient soundscapes and haunting atmospheres, but one and a half minute in the song the kick is introduced, and boy, is it hard. This one is going to rule the dancefloor for sure.

All eight tracks on this album are killers bent on destroying the dancefloor and making crowds insane. "I Need Insanity" and "La Drogue" are good songs for the industrial hardcore/frenchcore crowd but are just a little bit short on toppling opener "Black Buddha", but with the fourth song "Bonestorm" Desolation unleashes an industrial hurricane like you have never seen before. And with the semi title track "Desolate fields of bloody victory" the BPM approaches the 180 BPM This makes the pressure only get higher.

"La Haine" combines a spooky childrensmelody with ultra hard kicks and will also work well on dancefloors, but the real foaming at the mouth is album closer "Desolacid" which is almost 200 BPM. Try to do your silly industrial dance to that one people!

Personally i am not really into this kind of fast paced industrial hardcore, but with an agression and energy level resembling crustpunk, this is a great release. Noisj manages to throw another atombomb in the industrial scene. This label and its sublabels are getting more and more recognition from industrial DJ's and podcasts worldwide and if they keep it up they will soon dominate the industrial scene. Another great release, and they have more from where this came from!
