Nikoletta Winters I’m serious when I say this: The Fair Attempts captures perfectly the gothic industrial sound I grew up on. As I listened to arisTotal for the first time, I was all smiles. It reminds me of “The Smell of Rain” from Mortiis a lot. I absolutely adore what TFA is doing here. Bravo. Favorite track: Bad Battery.

danmcleifendeth Excellent first release from this talented Finnish EBM/industrial/Synthpop act. Crisp beats, satisfying basslines, and wicked lyrics combine to formulate one of the strongest industrial/EBM releases of 2019.

Acquire this ASAP - This is essential listening. Favorite track: Catwalk.

Blowback 03:46
Hey man Get your ass down here It’s another motherfucking day And I know there’s nowhere else for you to stay Oh and press your face against the windowpane And have a look around See your hopes and dreams fall six feet underground So what do you say When your future and your past fornicate? They make you who you are today Two wrongs don’t make one right, they say But I’ll nail you to your cross anyway Victim! That’s all you are You fought your right for none at all Blowback! Your cul-de-sac We trow the bone and you react Gunshot! The sound you wait Like a bell to make you salivate Hands up! And don’t you shoot I’m here to loot you useful idiots You are my favourite useful idiot I’ll nail you to your cross So what do you say When your future and your past fornicate? They make you who you are today Two wrongs don’t make one right, they say But I’ll nail you to your cross anyway

Bad Battery 03:26
Hold down your feelings You can't afford them any longer, my darling You got a bad battery I hear you breathing Your vital signs are getting weaker every moment Bad battery Come feed the beast You pave my road With your good intentions Arms 'round your throat Strategy of Tension Maybe you're dreaming Your medication's getting stronger every day You got a bad battery You stopped believing You heart is growing ever colder, my darling It's a tragedy I welcome suicide, a genocide So my world keeps spinning I got my battery, it's all I need Your blood keeps thinning We got a party at your place Got a tombstone with your name We dance around your open grave Dead or alive, its all the same I talked to God and God said no I prayed to God and God said no I prayed to God and God said no I talked to God and God said

arisTotal 02:10
I can't say what I wanna say I can't think what I just thought The whole world has gone to gutter And I don't think that I belong Terrified of what may come Terrified of what may come You always used to have a say If you wanted to stay or hit the highway Well I got nowhere to go I got nothing to show, no, not anymore Terrified of what I've become Terrified of what I've become

There comes a time Husband and wife A day of concern No way away I found you a hypocrite Oath and all He holds the cure Criminal He wants your money He has no soul From bits to pieces Your head, your toe Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Doing a favour for me and you Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Lay down your pistol and I’ll try to do so too You’ve got to fake it ’cause he fakes it too Doesn’t give a shit About how do you do Bent down in an alleyway Buttfucked and fake Don’t tell no hate It’s time to celebrate Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Doing a favour for me and you Don’t kill your doctor, because he’s killing you Lay down your pistol and I’ll try to do so too

Catwalk 03:56
Waiting is insurrection Deep breath a violation Welcome to the stage We wait. You suffocate Under the sun Under your screen you see death Under your feet on the ground Under your skin Don’t stop Walk straight Your razor thin careful little line Don’t stray Walk away in to the deep We die every night we sleep Don’t stop Walk straight Your razor thin careful little line Don’t stray Walk away in to the deep We die every night Don’t stop Walk straight Your razor thin careful little line Don’t stray Walk away in to the deep We die every night we sleep
