And here comes the so long awaited Digimortal. Finally it decided to show up in the middle of this spring. For those of you who waited it for a long time, we can quickly tell you that its far from keeping all its promises. The 4 members of the band are still very square and they still play with impressive accuracy. The production made by Rhys Fulber (like for the Front Line Assembly album) is beautiful and powerful.

Unfortunately the compositions are another story, except for one or two that blasts, the overall is too linear stays very similar from what the band delivered in the past, and it feels like the band doesn't really try to go forward. And it's not Be-Real intervention on Back The Fuck Up that will save the day. In the contrary it tends to make the overall too heavy and tries (but fails) to sound neo-metal. Okay its far from being the worst album I've heard, and its nice to headbang on some very cool titles that are : What Will Become or other Digimortal. But it the end it's the weakest album of the band so far. I'm leaving you as I go back to listen to the good old Demanufacture right now.
