ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inertia are back with what is probably their finest album to date.
The trio of Reza Udhin, Alexys B & Andrew Trail have really gelled on this latest offering which continues where "Advanced Revelation" left off, continually advancing & refining the band's signature EBM sound, be it the pacey offerings such as "Slow Motion", "Blank Stare", "Hypno-Suck" which sees Reza & Alexys duetting to good effect, almost like an EBM Peters & Lee (er, maybe not, on second thoughts!!) & the ultra-catchy, surefire dancefloor killer "Hot Hot Hot" (which is another cover, I think) or the slower "Hold Your Soul" where Alexys' vocals glide effortlessly over acidic synths & powerful rhythmic cascades which add an effective contrast. As a result of this & the absence of instrumental interludes (which sometimes seemed rather 'bitty' in any case) this comes across as a more 'complete' album but where Inertia are really hitting the mark now is in their knack for combining their trademark hard-hitting EBM signature with increasingly infectious tunes.
This is again very much the case here & proves to be an important part of the band's appeal throughout the album. Furthermore, they're now incorporating a wider range of styles into their music, such as the Middle-Eastern influences that make their mark during the slow & powerfully intense "Faith On Fire" & Alexys' vocal line on "Seven Sin VII" which betray the band's 60s rock & roll influences & work well in this setting. Her most famous contribution to Inertia's recent gigs is, of course, the singalong Bollywood fave "Shakalaka Baby" which is duly included here before "Violate" ends the album with another catchy EBM dose.
No doubt about it, Inertia really are improving with each new release so don't miss out.
