Lid EMBA - Terminal Muse: Red

Those of you reading this who are robots, androids or perhaps even just cyber people will already, I am sure, be hooked onto Lid EMBA's Terminal Muse: Red, the first in a series of three EPs with a limited edition of 100. So, if you're just plain old flesh and blood, you may have to hurry to buy what may yet become a collectors' item when the machines take over the planet. But, if you're tempted, be prepared for the industrial sounds of this circa-26 minute instrumental extravaganza: Lid EMBA's music is a factory-fuelled splash of concrete sounds, where the abrasive texture of the sounds is as important as any conventionally understandable rhythm or melody.

The band, hailing from Atlanta, seem pretty coy about revealing themselves: theirs is the weirdest website I've seen and this carries over to their MySpace (dubbed mydisgrace on the website) too much consumption of engine oil, clearly - so you'll have to find out more about them yourselves.

As for the music: clicks, beeps, whirls, metallic drops, clangs, reverberations, deep timbral resonances; occasional regular rhythms and synthesizer and, in the latter section of the title track, nearly a discernable melody. I call it "industrial", they call it "concrete" whichever, you'd better be a machine-head to truly enjoy this.

Track Listing:-
1) Wasteland of Joy
2) Oblivion Core Decoy
3) OCD (An Uninvited Coda)
4) Stuporfied
5) Terminal Muse
