Meatplows Spotlight Vol. 1

So every week or so i'll listen to 3 albums in a row which i've dug out of my collection really loud through expensive headphones in a dark room and detail my experiences here.
1Laskfar Vortok

So I stumbled across this at random searching 2010 albums on where clearly the guy who made it himself had uploaded it, I was immediately assaulted with a furious blend of breakcore and noise which didn't let up. I was somewhat impressed, this time around it felt a little disjointed and at an unnecessary length. I have a feeling there is better stuff of this nature, I just don't know where to look for it. Any suggestions?

Analogue synthpop with some nice ambient touches from two of the key members of industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle, sign me up. I have always enjoyed Hearbeat but this time around it really struck me as immaculately constructed, tracks such as Moorby and This Is Me are beautiful in a dreamy New Wave synth kind of way whilst stuff like Manic Melody is utterly disorientating. Only loses points by having a cheesy production at times, this is part of the appeal in a way.

My love for J.G. Thirlwell has not gone unnoticed on sputnik, his one man industrial project has always had a ferocious bite to it through his black humour and Nail is often seen as the Foetus magnum opus. I beg to differ (1988's Thaw would be my personal choice), however it is still one of the most important 80's industrial recordings and there are plenty of moments on here I just can't help but smile at everytime I hear them (Descent Into The Inferno being one of them). Album is so much fun, production might be a little flat for some though despite the amount of intricate layers of sound there is.
