Life Cried - Banished Psalms
Dark Electro, Harsh EBM Life Cried's latest work 'Banished Psalms' may be one of the most evil sounding albums I've heard this year and it's not bad at all.

I tend to (for the most parts) like melodic industrial/EBM, call it whatever you want, bands and really dislike minimalistic and raw sounding bands, but what Life Cried do they do really good. They deliver an angry and evil sounding beast with both harsh vocals, distorted drums and atmospheric melodies.

I am very fond of nagging about production and prefer a clean sound picture, but with this kind of music the production is really good, the vocals are perfectly balanced with the music (which is rare in most cases with these types of bands). The only thing is that sometimes the melodies can fall a little behind all other sounds.

My favorite songs on this album are "Preacher", "Solemn" and "Forbidden" which are to me the fastest tracks of the album and which also has great lead synthesizers combined with the harsh vocals which creates track with really good atmosphere.
