Sektor 304 – “Soul Cleansing” – [Malignant Records]
This is the 2009 debut album of Sektor 304, out of Porto, Portugal. Hard, noisy industrial beats with a tinge of power electronics and dark ambient. The two piece group performs using, in their own words, “vocals, beats, synths, bass, metal junk and power tools.” Dark, metallic noisy industrial that remains rhythmic and at times even melodic. Some of the tracks have a slow, doomy vibe, (Voodoo Machine, The Beast”) while others are straightforward industrial pieces (“Power Exchange”) with a few ambient tracks (“Pulse Generator, Blood Rush”) thrown in. Heavy metal satan sh*t all over this one.
