Written by Nikos Konstantinou
Artist: Various Artists Title: Machineries Of Joy Vol. 5 Genre: EBM, Industrial, Synth-Pop, Future-Pop, Gothic Release Date: 30th November 2012 Label: Out Of Line
One more compilation from the label Out Of Line, this time we have the 5th volume of the successful series titled ‘Machineries Of Joy’. We have 32 bands in a double cd which comes with a low price, something that makes the compilation even more attractive. In this compilation we will find bands from almost every genre of the dark alternative scene. Synth-Pop, Future-Pop bands like CHROM, MELOTRON, EBM bands like SIGNAL AOUT 42, JÄGGER 90 and THE JUGGERNAUTS, industrial like HOCICO, SUICIDE COMMANDO, Gothic Rock with bands like BLUTENGEL, STAUBKIND and many more from all the genres that I mentioned are included on that double CD. One more strong point of the compilation is that includes some remixes which are hard to find or unreleased. If someone wants a first touch with almost the entire range of the dark alternative scene ‘Machineries Of Joy Vol. 5’ is for sure a very good way to start. If you are already fan of this music this a very good album to enrich your collection.
