Minamata - Politkovskaia
Power Electronics, Industrial Terror, horror, totalitarianism and agony? If you like music that conveys some protest, the next album is for you. Minamata is an old-school legendary French industrial band which has its roots in the long forgotten 80?s of previous century. On this album, the front-man of Minimata, more known under the code-name Tiburce, tries to bring to your attention the experience from the post soviet Russian actuality of continuous political instability. Chechnya terror, dominance of corporations and tycoons. All this was inspired by the different reality that they had seen during their tour in Russia.

Brutality and violence are the key words for the experience. Without compromise and without any fear of persecution, the French residents blast the speakers with one huge wall of power electronics. Mixing the speeches of former Russian President Putin, old soviet party songs and different political chants, it all brings the authentic feeling during whole the album. Heavy percussion demolishes the illusions of safety and calmness and reveals all the depth of mass manipulation of citizen's thoughts and feelings. Political terror, cynical trade of national resources. Harsh and dense is the structure that covers the listener with the canvas of despair.

The album was released on the well-known Berlin based label L. White Records. The A5 Box contains a CD and a DVD which is compiled with the live shows from the different stages in Russia during 2009. Get your copy, as this piece of plastic is one of the most solid creations on the scene of power electronics for the last few years.
