Finland's Alexanred have returned with a new album which continues their mixture of industrial rock and metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Always Active" which will be released in October by Inverse Records.
A very dark and heavy industrial rock sound starts off the album along with some melodic vocals a few seconds later and the music also brings in the heaviness of metal with the guitars while the synths are more in an industrial direction and after awhile the vocals start to get a little bit more aggressive.
You can hear a lot of the old school industrial sound from both the 80's and 90's in the bands musical style and the vocals also use a good amount of spoken word parts while there are also some melodic moment s present on this recording that would be suitable enough to be played on some of the rock radio stations.
Alexanred continue their mixture of industrial rock and metal on this recording, creating a sound that is both heavy and very melodic at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Alexanred and if you are a fan of industrial rock and metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Holiday In The Cold" "And Locust Ate" "Result After Result" and "Non Stop, Non Stop". 8 out of 10.
