The all boy band transformed into a flock of femme fatales would seem like something out of Charles Bands’ world; you know, that guy who made that campy, horror film named Ghoulies.

Once “Bombs Begins” plays, it’s premise is not too far outside the realm of the soundtrack for Seven or Saw. Then, as soon as it finds itself under the influence of “Gravity”, the sad and desolate antics revert to the starkest kind of Industrial Metal. Continuing to redefine themselves, “T.V. Baby” aims to be psychedelic.

Overall, their scores are quite sorted. As a fair comparison, they frequently resemble Nine Inch Nails; especially in the tune “99 Lives”. Later, they expose the listener to a sick and twisted remake of INXS’ “Devil Inside”. Like the flu, it’s quite communicable. Initial reactions will be to quarantine yourself from this irregular version. Unfortunately, avoiding its transference is ultimately futile. In other words, the music is a train wreck, but it’s incredibly hard to sound off.

Even though the production is rough as hell, the underlying beats are insanely catchy and mesmeric. With that said, the best masochistic pleasure offered here is “New Man is Born”. While it’s hardly listenable, its reverberant delivery system quickly enhances the cut’s crapulent effects.

Looking at the liner notes, they forge their craft by wiping standard instruments with electronic percussion and a profuse dose of programming. The result isn’t as strangely exotic as Gingerdead Man or Evil Bong, but like those slimy, little monsters hiding in septic systems; this series of accessible suppositories will get you in the end.

    Joshua was a reviewer and interviewer here at Metal Express Radio. Iced Earth, Judas Priest, and Opeth are among his favorite bands, as well as Spock’s Beard and The Flower Kings. Once upon a time, the radio was a stopping point for him. From the day he discovered side-projects and Scandinavian imports, it all changed overnight. Outside of music, his passion is roller coasters. But when he's grounded and at home, he belong in the company of musical aficionados and technical shredders. He’ll get his jollies listening to Jazz Fusion when his favorites are in short supply. Still, if he had his druthers, give him a pretentious epic with a high-brow concept any day of the week (and slap on a guitar line with oodles of power chords for good measure).
