G.L.O.W - Pain & Suffering
The world is filled with a myriad of powerful and esoteric images that escape from the harsh sounds leaving the listener almost tasting the dark colours, and feeling the emotional haze that has descended from the speakers.
All this is caused by South Africa's own G.L.O.W and his newest album Pain & Suffering.
The songs on this ten track album are the epitome of diversity and spring forth from the lesser none world of African life. No, this is not an album about lions and zebras. This is an album that combines personal feelings and emotions with advice concerning the dangers of life in modern South Africa.
Songs such as 'My Destiny' and 'Be Aware of Your Surroundings' are about as diverse as you can get in the Electro-Industrial scene. 'My Destiny' takes you on a personal journey of self discovery, while 'Be Aware of Your Surroundings' is a combination of helpful anti-high jacking hints and tips mixed with a growling Industrial vibe. It's about as diverse as one can get for an album.
Overall, Pain & Suffering is an interesting and diverse album that will fit perfectly into any Experimental-Industrial collection.May 03 2016
