PREMIERE: INDUSTRIAL CYBERPUNKS ENCEPHALON WILL TEAR YOU APART "LIMB FROM LIMB"
We have had quite a loving history with Encephalon since their debut album The Transhuman Condition was released. Out via Artoffact Records, the album was scored just shy of perfection with a 9.5 out of 10, praised by us as having "...some of the most technical sounding, unheard and completely refined electronic sounds and synth sections.." It was not shocking then to see that the Ottawa-based industrial trio would go onto heavily impress us with their next album Pscyhogenesis, where I could not help but imagine myself in a space colony rave and digital rock opera. Again, the band scored generously with us as a 9 out of 10 landed its mark.
If there is one thing that is for sure, it's that with Encephalon's next album We Only Love You When You're Dead the band is once again resonating with brilliance. We have the introductory song on the album to prove our point. So, ladies and gentlemen, we invite you to get torn 'Limb From Limb' in this premiere of the track from Encephalon's upcoming third album:
Thematically 'Limb From Limb' depicts a real time stream of consciousness account of a man as he awakens, reanimated from the dead. Musically it's a hard and dark return to club friendly electro industrial in the style of our defining club hit 'Rise'. -Encephalon
For the past half-decade, Encephalon has been playing gigs and festivals honing their craft and expanding their sound. The wait has been well worth it as the project is putting out a double album of musician crafted, electronically charged, science fiction fueled EBM, industrial, cyberpunk, and symphonic metal. You can pre-order the album HERE.

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.
