Icons of Coil...

I've never listened to Icons of Coil before but a number of friends kept telling me they were good and I listen to loads of bands in the same EBM-esque genre so I thought I'd try one of their CDs last time I was on Music Non-Stop spending my Paypal allowance.

Well I got the 'Machines Are Us' CD today and have just given it the once over. I can't (from the first listen) see what all the fuss is about. I think I was expecting something slightly harder or with more of a beat behind it but this CD just came across as a bit, I dunno, 'damp'?

Have I just chosen a bit of a duff CD of theirs or is Machines Are Us a good representation of the bands music?

On the plus side I did get a free promotional compilation CD from the Alfa Matrix label which is very good so far. I certainly think I'll be checking out some of the bands featured on that in more detail.

It's even got a Zombie Girl track on it and, although I've not heard anything by them/her yet, I've been intriued to hear what they sound like as I've seen the name around a fair bit recently....

I'm something of a fan, but as albums go I prefer "Serenity is the devil." Like most things, you either like them or you don't.

Are you coming to see us play with Pride And Fall and Covenant?

I certainly want to and have been intending to go and buy a ticket. When is it btw? I know it's at Islington Academy but can't remember when offhand.

It'll be good to see you live again and I've never caught in your RBN incarnation.

They're not terrible in my experience, though I believe it was them that played Whitby a couple of years back and caused me and a friend to go and get drunk somewhere.
