Japanese Electronica Project featuring Special Guests from Japan, Killing Joke/Prong, Professionals, Nine Inch Nails, Sex Pistols, Cult, Danzing, and More.
After X-Japan disbanded at the end of 1997, Hide's plan was to record an album with one of his new band's, Zilch, which was an American band and was Hide's way of breaking into America and Europe and expanding his career in the West after gaining huge popularity in Japan during the late 80's and 90's.
The band was set to tour America supporting Marilyn Manson in the Summer of 1998 but unfortunately Hide died in May of 1998, shortly before the album was completed.
Hide was working on 2 albums at the time of his death, this album and one with his solo band, Spread Beaver, both were released after his death.
This is a fantastic album from a band that had every potential to build a serious fan base in the West before X-Japan were planning on reuniting in 2000 and would have for sure attempted to break into the West too.
Hide's death was tragic but even after his death, he gave us 2 incredible albums and this is one of them.
I highly recommend you check this out as well as Spread Beaver and X-Japan
There is none of that here. Like many industrial records, everything is so sludged in effects, you can't make out any style at all. There are also appearances by a few other artists I dig, but the same problem exists there.
If you need another industrial record, this is better than Filter, or any of that nonsense, but it's nothing that's going to change your life.
