Released in January 2017, Disconnection is the debut release from Czech Republic EBM/Industrial/Cyber Punk band, Plague Against Humanity.
While the EP might be 10 tracks long, 5 of them are remixes of the first 5 songs. Opening with the dark electronic beat of Plague, it’s an instant soul-searching piece of music that really intrigues about what is about to follow.
Doomed Generation club-like beat isn’t initially exciting but once the vocals & the meat of the song kicks in it, it really becomes quite an outstanding slice of industrial metal. The harshness of the vocals fit so well with the electronica, creating a track that is as heavy as it is catchy!
There are shades of everything here…a little bit of Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Fear Factory, Ministry & Rammstein!
There’s so much imagination present on this EP. The Truth’s relentless drum beat pace, the echoing effects & amazing blasts of guitar rhythm. All that alongside black metal-style vocals makes this an EP you must check out. Especially in a sub-genre that doesn’t have a whole host of new & interesting bands about.
Listeners concerned that they aren’t getting enough ‘’metal’ for their buck should just listen to the title track, Disconnection to put their mind at ease. A simply amazing blend of deep, groove heavy riffs with flashes of upbeat electronica. It’s arguably the best Industrial/EBM song this year.
