Fury 161 - Armageddons Maw
Death Industrial Back in September of last year, Fury 161 released a teaser single for their forthcoming album. And, well, that album has finally arrived and is releasing on the 31st of this month. This is the duo's first release under this moniker, and the eleven track album is titled Armageddons Maw. What we have here is a death industrial amalgamation of songs, however, they don't only stick with death industrial; the first song plays off with some ambient sounds, while others nod to rhythmic noise and black metal.

The intro track was very interesting, and gave a perfect opening sequence to shine light on what was about to invade our ears. I can easily describe this song as a ship descending upon a storm ridden planet on the verge of extinction. And, this does fit in with the artists' name; Fury 161 (AKA Fiorina 161) is the planet that was heralded in the Alien films. And, well, they definitely hold their name very fine.

As far as the rest of the album goes, it's very, very harsh. Honestly, this is some weird but good sounding shit. It's like Satan shoved his demonic phallus right into me and powerfucked me to the ninth circle of Hell. And you know this was a good fucking; after all, Satanism incorporates a lot of sex. So you know the king of the underworld knows a thing or two about dilly-dallying with his willy.

On a much more serious note straying away from dick jokes and Satan, I am fairly impressed with what Fury 161 has brought in their arrival to the new year. The vocals sound extremely dark and evil, growling across each song they're present in and dragging out their chords. The song bird behind the vocals is a talented bastard who expresses the hate that brews within himself. I'm just glad he's taking his anger out through music and not through machine guns. Else we'd all probably be dead.

My favorite parts in all of the songs are when the tribal drums take their stand. Even though there's a lot more going on within the songs, the drums take center stage with vicious poundings and a driving line. Open Wide is a testimonial to my words, and serves as one of my favorite songs on the album. Another fantastic example of the wondrous drums that placate the album would be found within the final minute of Black Heart Attack.

Needless to say, this is a fair representation of what Fury 161 can bring to the table. I didn't really know what to expect when going into this album, but coming out, I've been chewed up and spit out twice over. It was extremely harsh and bitter in taste, but that just makes it all the more likable. I would gladly go through this inferno once more.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
