So when you have pioneers of computerized music or experimental when dealing with earlier seventies work by Pink Floyd or Can, and see that trend morph into either synth pop that dominated the early 1980's with the likes of A Flock of Seagulls or Depeche Mode or into more alien and abrasive directions like Skinny Puppy, the seminal Throbbing Gristle or Ministry, most acts that rely on this type of approach can be dull and repetitive or exciting and ground breaking. The Algorithm, aka Remi Gallego, is a new face to industrial music, but unlike Daft Punk, who are lame in the extreme, or a few other prominent outfits that concentrate more on blast beats and the usual bleats and blorps with little imagination involved, he has taken this type of music into realms of possibilities I've been waiting for.
Even though I am/was a guitarist, I've always appreciated the potential of all instruments, and delve into computerized music myself. Being more old school but still having enough imagination for new stuff if it's good, I have explored more textures, weird noises and the like ala The Residents for my more alien stuff, and jazzy stuff for more normal tunes. I was pleased to discover The Algorithm is not a one trick pony. Yes, it can be heavy and alienating, but Gallegos wisely peppers his work with real atmosphere, knowing that too much of anything is well, too much. All instrumental with only a few vocal lines, "Octupus4" is catchy throughout, innovative and a fine example of what more imagination can accomplish. Metal fans will like the intensity and industrial fans will like the fresh approach. It isn't easy to make instrumental music that appeals to non-musicians, but Gallegos has succeeded. It's too bad his work is not well known. For those who like listening to stuff that is truly futuristic, this is a good place to go.
It's a combination that could descend into wankery, but it works, and it's compelling.
Put another way - if Goblin had been formed in 2010, instead of in the 70's, then this would have been the result.
Some of the best stuff I've heard in years, for those interested in music that defies pigeonholing.
