October’s EMusic Downloads

October’s 90:

Typical of Combichrist, this is some hard-hitting eminently danceable industrial music. It’s more consistent than previous albums, though, and seems lyrically less (but not much less) ridiculous. Good fun, the band’s best effort to date.

I have to thank [Alan Cross over at Explore Music](http://is.gd/g61nD for this discovery. Exit Calm sound so much like Storm in Heaven-era Verve it’s uncanny, but they’re so damn good that it’s hard to complain about such obvious homage. This is a terrific album – it’s on my short list for best album of the year.

Hard industrial from Vancouver. It’s been a long time since Unit:187 released an album (their last release was 2003’s Capital Punishment) but this is worth the wait. This album is, with apologies to George Orwell, like a boot stomping your brain forever.

Excellent EBM! Dark, yet danceable. An excellent cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seed’s The Mercy Seat is just icing on an extremely tasty cake.
