S.L.A., Title: Screed CASSETTE A nice tape of industrial dance oriented music (with a mix of guitars, drum machines and metallic percussion), mostly on the rockish side, though only one track has a heavy metal sound Their best trick is probably the call and response vocals they like to use, where the "call" is the usual industrial scream, but the response is some sort of spoken or sung chorus echoing in the background. I like the slow/mid-tempo stuff here the best: Slower: A(1) 018-510, 7:56 - "M.E. 262" Intro: echoy drones. Goes into a rockish (almost psychedilic) industrial dance sound, with their trademark scream and response. B(2) 458-772, 6:13 - "Systems Collapse" Leads with quiet, high tones, kicks at 476 with a blippy industrial beat, metal percussion is added, then a background triablesque vocal wail... then goes into scream and response pattern. A(3) 778-1073, 6:46 - "The Supreme Truth", Intro: kinda bubbly notes, goes into a slowish, trippy piece with very echoy/psychedleic (and incomprehensible) vox. Faster stuff: B(1) 019-453, 6:52 - "Flood the Bed", Fast industrial-tribal with screamed vox. A(2) 515-771, 5:16 - "Dither", Fast, harsh, very metal guitar licks, screamed vox. B(3) 775-932, 4:52 - "Raus", Fast, harsh. Weakest track. Screaming about "Society".
