The Peoples Republic Of Europe : Machine District [2011]

After the critically acclaimed album, "Babylon", and the dark
ambient album "Solipsism", tPROE are back at the forefront of
industrial music with the new album "Machine District". Though
not a concept album like the previous ones, this album does fit
in well with the critical, libertarian and transhumanist views
tPROE are known for. "Machine District" holds twelve tracks,
with a lot of stompy four to the floor technoid industrial
tracks, but also some surprises like the SKINNY-PUPPY-meets-
George-Clinton track "Automation Test", the witchhouse from
"Stay Behind", which was written together with DEAD HAND
PROJEKT, and some distorted dancehall and noisy drum'n'bass.

All in all "Machine District" combines the rich experimental
sound of "Babylon" with the sheer stompathon of "Singularity",
without giving in to the bad hardstyle which is mistaken for
industrial nowadays. "Machine District" will be a treat for all
those who like their industrial harsh, painful and rude. tPROE
go beyond man-machine and choose the machine as the future. The
soundtrack for a world where skynet and the cylons are the
