It certainly makes a real change to have some full on Industrial Metal to listen to, and this is in your face stuff that's for sure. My first thoughts are actually that 'Erase the Sky' is very much along the lines of Fear Factory/Pitchshifter. Second thoughts are there's a little bit of Sepultura in there too!!!! So all good so far.

Looking back a bit on the third listen I'm picking up some nice Nine Inch Nails touches and even an element of KMFDM, (SO IT'S TICKING ALL THE RIGHT BOXES FOR ME) and this LP is in fact the 6th release from this bunch of Canadians recorded at their own studio in Toronto.

The blurb tells me that the whole Nanochrist concept was originally only intended as a studio project. What a fucking waste that would have been if it had been true, but they started to tour after the release of their fourth LP 'Mythelectronicon'.

I really can't emphasise enough just how powerful this album is and by the third track in I'm feeling like I'm pinned back against the wall listening to it, 'Disposable Genepool' is superb and it's then bettered by 'Acid Inhale', which for me is the stand-out track here. Then 'Trace' hits you and the NIN relevance is there for all to see. And did I mention 'Exquisite Corpse'? Grab some NIN, mix in some Killing Joke and finish it all with a bit of Fear Factory.... stunning!

The is probably the best album I've heard in the genre for a long time - go out and buy it now!

The Canadian project of Nanochrist is active since the late 90s. I can't remember to have heard of this band before although I've to recognize they're a particular experience in sound.

Nanochrist clearly finds their inspiration in the wide metal fields. Some of the tracks are pretty doom-like with "Two Minutes Hate" as main attention grabber. The guitar parts sound like a bulldozer on speed. The vocals are furious and enraged. The rhythmic sounds like a steam train losing control. Nanochrist gives me the impression of a hunted ‘beast'. It sounds fast and always forward, but still refined with some electro arrangements. "Disposable Genepool" is a very efficient song mixing guitars and electronics while it remains a dangerous and merciless track. "Acid Inhale" is another track in the genre. I here especially like the carrying power of the guitar play.

"Erase The Sky" never loses its power. The entire album is harsh, brute and metal-minded. Nanochrist is much harder than KMFDM, but less metal-like than Fear Factory. "Erase The Sky" is somewhere in between while still revealing a few darker trash/doom elements. The electronic touch brings an extra little element on top of it all. "Salt And Ashes" is another track appearing to be a cool ambassador for those Canadians.

I can't say that the album got me wild, but there's enough material on "Erase The Sky" to please metal addicts.
