Acidrodent - Of Human Toxicity

'Of Human Toxicity' is the fourth studio album by industrial metal band Acidrodent. Originally starting out as a dubstep project by musician Tony Smith, Acidrodent eventually evolved into an industrial metal band which is heard here. This release shows the increasingly heavier style release after release now fully take form.

Taking the attitude and lyricism of Grindcore, crushing industrial thrash, distorted glitch techno, and even some drone elements, Acidrodent brings an aggressive onslaught of industrial metal that acts as giving the finger to 'Political Correctness'. With such song titles as 'In Praise of School Shootings' and 'Vomit Me a River', you know you're not going to be taken on any fantasy ride or a compelling concept album. This is pure gritty industrial metal with the same carefree attitude of bands like White Zombie.

The song 'Bombs Away', opens up the album really well. It's a perfect mix of distorted vocals and great guitar work. My favorite song on the album is definitely 'Broken', which is an awesome barrage of industrial thrash and glitching electronics. Karen Righeimer's bouncy bass and Roland Zwaga's snarl-y aggressive voice are perfect for the gritty industrial sound. 'Vomit Me a River' is another favorite, with machine-gun electronic attacks, crushing guitar, and the grotesque lyrics fitting perfectly with Zwaga's vocals. While not my favorite, the song 'Pyre' mixes the music up with its droning electronics.

Overall, if you want some unapologetic industrial metal this would be an excellent choice. If you're not used to gruesome lyrics, it may be a bit hard to get into but I loved the anti-'PC' attitude. Once I got hooked, it's difficult to stop listening to 'Broken'. I highly recommend this album to any fans of the gritty side of industrial metal. Hope you found this review helpful.
