Razed In Black "Damaged"
Damaged has so much pulse and texture, this sixth album from Rammsteinish club-thumpers Razed In Black could one day find some of its parts sampled on a Toyota Prius commercial. Pulling from the playbooks of '80s electronica godfathers Information Society and industrial madmen Ministry, Razed IN Black packs Damaged" with plenty of manufactured kicks to the groin, many provided by way of DJs, including Spahn Ranch, Yoshimi, Vicci Neptune and others. Ecstacy-addled ravers and S&M addicts the world over will want to add this techno gem to their twisted collections.
