Album Notes
Based out of Ohio, North America, this collaborative effort of Dave Spencer and Dan Wells has turned out to be a successful one, turning out some exceptionally well written industrial dark and doomy tracks.

CD Review:

Sporting both some interesting wordplay and the usual bag of gimmicks (track 6 is labeled "666" and you'll find plenty of skull artwork), Deepest Symphony throw about half an hour of channeled industrial mayhem your way on their full-length debut, Psycho 101. Sporting apparent 80s and early 90s industrial influences among others, Dave Spencer's distorted rasps and whispers carry atop layers of loops, samples, guitar, and other real instrumentation, creating a strong, dark industrial/electro-rock sound that is dense and endearingly lo-fi.

Sometimes seemingly geared for club play (the dance-industrial closer "I Hate Your Hate"), sometimes more aggressive (the steady thumping percussion and guitar riffing of the disc's title track complete with a Psycho theme motif), and at other times almost alternapop-oriented (the downright catchy standout "Devil's Dance"), the album is sonically consistent yet stylistically diverse enough to avoid becoming too repetitive. Other memorable moments on the album include the noteworthy synth riff loop of "Tears of Pain" and the interesting semi-industrial funk and reverb-drenched vocals of "The Creep".

Despite the occasional cliché, Deepest Symphony's Psycho 101 is a relatively solid foray into lo-fi industrial territory with underground electro-rock leanings and a handful of particularly catchy underlying pop hooks. Whether the band caught your ear at this year's Gothicfest or you're a lo-fi industrial fan among the more numerous uninitiated, you'll probably find their short but rather decent debut at least worth a listen.

this one grows on you.
Industrial rock act Deepest Symphony was one of those I caught at Gothicfest then they became one of thos bands you think they were not just an industrial act. I say this because they do something very rare these days in industrial -- and that is combine complex guitar riffing. This is recommended for those who are fans of Circle of Dust (first album, and Brainchild.)

They are more faring to cyber-metal in the way they play guitar. I shared two Gothicfest billings with them.

One of thos that could easy get radio play, first time you hear an industrial act that can do this clean. Their lyrical content is dark but deals with a lot of internal madness.

This CD was part of a giveaway bag that was passed out at the first Gothicfest. I would easy have spent the cash if it was able to be found in record stores in this area (the Southland is kind of hard to find industrial with the era of EMO TOPIC.)

Industrial is accurate but I think it is more acturate they are a guitar based band who does industrial.
