Murder Love God - Death Circle Blues
Industrial, Metal This has been done before, Murder Love God. Murder Love God is almost a direct off shoot of Marilyn Manson, minus the class. A band of angry musicians hailing from the cheese state of Wisconsin, I feel your pain I'm lactose intolerant too. So poorly mixed I was returned to the era of Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. It's albums like this that have people begging for Industrial Metal to just die.

Too little, too late the 'Antichrist Superstar' album has already been made. Sure you look mean and scary, but can you write GOOD music? I honestly feel like I am listening to the demo tapes from early Marilyn Manson, but that is not a good thing. The album follows the "safe" structures of Verse/Chorus/Verse throughout. I don't mean to be so smug but, this album really was not thought out.

At about three minutes into "Kissing the Virgin" a poorly timed and, poorly executed guitar solo comes blaring in and takes away any charisma the song possibly had aside from the overuse of the word "WORM" why does that word sound so familiar? "Optifall" I can not even begin to describe how horrible this song is, not even heavily gated vocal distortion could cover up the fact that front man Medavon has NO vocal talent, I actually found more lyrical depth in FH4. As I struggled further through this album it became painfully clear that Murder Love God had no clear path for a stylistic direction and, even less so for message. At least Faderhead makes it clear they love to fucking party. By the time I got to "Struggle Head", MY HEAD WAS POUNDING, luckily it was some sort of break from the drunken karaoke stylings of Medavon. "Hi Def Suicide" was a bit more like musical homicide "your God is dead, and his head is blown off" ugh, this guy has rearranged NIN and Manson lyrics to make his own. I could go on about this trite for a long time but, I'm nauseous even thinking about it.

My recommendation is that Murder Love God lay down the instruments or find a style and stick to it, amateur musicians with one simple goal and that is to get laid. Murder Love God is as important to industrial as, a red shirt is in an episode of Star Trek. Just like Manson without the class.
