Album Review

Hey, here's something someone should have thought up years ago — industrial music that's rhythmically interesting! Where most of their colleagues stick to generic, club-derived, four-on-the-floor beats and equally generic synthesizer chord washes, Flesh Field brings breakbeats, loops and samples to the party and buttresses them with genuine electric guitars; when combined with the usual guttural vocal roars and snarls, the result is like a bracing combination of Gang of Four's stuttering punk-funk and, say, Front 242's hectoring Teutonic rants. The best moments on the band's third album come when new member Wendy Yanko steps up to the mic; female vocals are almost as rare in this genre as interesting beats, and the combination of the two (particularly on the very fine "Reflect the Enemy") is enough to make you weep with relief. Then there's the distinctly funky groove of "Recoil," not to mention the near-balladic "Epiphany" and those tasty little drum'n'bass interludes on "Seethe." Very nice.

Customer Reviews


I love this band so much

Still an Epic journey 10 years later...

Ahhh... Flesh Field. I still remember the day I first heard this album back when it first came out while I was in high school. This album embodies the essence of epic. It is the definition of epic. There is nothing out there that quite captures the power, the anger and sheer epicness that this album oozes. Though I grew out of most of the bands I listened to back in the early 2000s, Flesh Field isn't one of them. This album still finds its way into my playlists nearly 10 years after release. I can't think of a better compliment than that. I can't think of any other band that can match Flesh Field's intensity and raw power in this album. Frankly I've given up on ever finding anything remotely as powerful, epic or just plain beautiful. RIP Flesh Field. You will be missed.

The best songs on the album by far are Voice of Dissent, Amoeba and Haven.
