Death Grips The Powers That B - Part I: Niggas on the Moon
With this LP, Death Grips take their electro/glitchy aesthetic to dizzying new heights. All the while still keeping their gritty lyrical content and infectious hooks that made releases like Exmilitary and The Money Store so enjoyable. The result of this is their most convincing and cohesive record since The Money Store #staynoided

Brilliant riffs, fantastic vox and killer leads are all present here. The only that 'drags' this down is its familiarity, some songs tend to blend into one another in an awkward way. But hey, its beyond solid and Carcass is back baby!

Is it as good as its been hyped up to be? Well, yeah it is. QOTSA effortlessly mix their slower stoner side with
their once again found energetic side that we felt on Rated R and SftD. AOTY material? Probably not, but what
QOTSA have put forward is a solid set of songs that fans have been longing for for 6 years. Can anything more
be asked of them?

Fear Factory Archetype
Fear Factory The Industrialist
'The Industrialist' could just be described as a carbon copy of 'Mechanize' on the surface. rHowever, there is something about 'The Industrialist' that sets it apart from any other rother Fear Factory release. The classic chugs and the fast paced double drum beats are still rthere, but this Fear Factory release creates an atmosphere unlike any other LP they've ever rput out. Not only does this album feature some of the best material FF have ever put out, rbut the industrial influence they've utilized over the years is at its most refined and reffective on this LP. 'The Industrialist' is a definite contender for AOTY and has lived up rto the hype surrounding it in every way possible...and more.

I reckon Masdival released poor singles on purpose, although they sound better within the context of the album the other tracks here eclipse them easily. A solid and enjoyable release by Cynic, but by no means up to par with their other releases.
