IRM : Red Album [1999]

IRM is a Swedish industrial / power electronics project that should be well-known to anyone familiar with Cold Meat Industry's catalog at the turn of the millennium.

Their first CD release wasn't until the year after when Oedipus Dethroned was released and gave most of the power electronics underground a chance to hear the project, not only because of its CD release, but also because the album wasn't strictly limited. IRM would go on to work with CMI again twice in their career, but since that moment it has been mostly Leech (Navicon Torture Technologies)'s label Annihilvs
