Melek-tha is the French dark industrial project of Lord Evil and his Cyborg Drum Engine. On this 2003 release, we witness the destruction of the world from a distance (high atop Black Mountain?) in two phases. Phase 1 opens with the sounds of the global war machine churning – jagged, racing synths – as its dictates, in French, are issued over the loudspeakers (T.1). These are the sounds of the collapse: a toxic sonic fog settles in, drum beats appear and accelerate as tension builds (T. 2), a transmission arrives from a courtroom as a smiling murderer (Bundy) asserts his innocence, and the machine grinds to a halt, its fuel exhausted (T. 3). Phase 2 is a glimpse of the world post-apocalypse. A new machine, a driving beat, grows from the burnt rubble and twisted metal (T.4); it is clear what is coming will be even shittier. The new laws are delivered to us, this time in an alien language (T. 5), but we understand their meaning. This is a lateral shift to a new world order, based on dominance and submission (T. 6), same as the old order. Welcome to oblivion!!!
