ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Equal parts Metal, Industrial, and Prog Rock, Nanochrist are hard to categorize. But three things are for certain: They are always heavy, interesting, and unpredictable.

Mythelectronicon is the 4th album from Nanochrist, and marks the 10th full-length release from guitarist Mike Bryant.

Crunchy guitars and heavy bass are interwoven with swirling synthesizers and distorted percussion loops. Over this are vocals ranging from melodic to lung-tearing screams. All of this is combined using dissonant intervals and a variety of time signatures in order to make the music as ugly and challenging as possible.

Influenced by artists as diverse as Rush, Strapping Young Lad, Nine Inch Nails, Peter Gabriel, Fear Factory, Pitchshifter and Frank Zappa, Nanochrist mesh parts of many genres into a unique style of their own. This has landed them as high as the #4 and #1 spots in the Metal sections of garageband.com and mp3.com, respectively.

Nanochrist have a spot in the world's largest independant CD compilation: "The Canadian Independant Box Set" from Meathead Records. They are the only Canadian members of both the Industrial Remix Coalition d-conztrakt, and the Third Wave Collective.

Nanochrist are:

Scworm: Vocals
Scott Fitches: Bass
Mike Bryant: Guitar, Programming

Industrial heavy metal with some prog rock influences.
This CD contains 13 tracks of industrial heavy metal with some prog rock influences thrown into the mix. I applaud them for their originality. It's nice to hear some music that is a bit off-the-wall (crazy). I remember reviewing another album of theirs in the past and thinking the same thoughts. There a couple instrumentals on this disc worth checking out (as well as the rest of the tracks). Professional recording and awesome promo-pack. To check them out and see what they are all about, go to www.nanochrist.com I love that guitar solo in track 10!

Anything but mellow!
This is the band's fourth full-length, and it sees the band developing an even harder edge than what was found on their last effort, "Corrode". The band calls their sound Progressive Industrial Metal, however, I find that a little misleading. From that description I would be expecting mellow Industrialized sounds, something like Dream Theater covering a Marilyn Manson song, but what come from this disc is anything but mellow! If I was to make some comparisons (and I will) I would say what we have here, is a blend of NIN, Godflesh, early Pitchshifter, Fear Factory, and Angkor Wat. That's right, "Angkor Wat", how's that for an obscure reference? If you young kiddies enjoy Industrial stuff, hunt down a copy of their kick-ass 1990 debut "Corpus Christi"... but I digress. Back to Nanochrist, song title wise, the band is not quite as "out there" as last time, on Corrode we had "Anus With a Fist", and "Two Dead Women on Public Transit". Both of them sound just like songs one would find on a Kenny G. or Barry Manilow CD don't they? The best this time out, is the CD intro entitled "Buzzing About A Mound Of Godshit". Who wouldn't want to hear a disc with that song on it? Anyway, the band (Scworm - vocals, Scott Fitches - bass, and Mike Bryant - guitar & programming) just never lets up on this thing. It'll pummel you from start to finish, with no breaks to catch your breath. The cybernetic buzz is constant, and will keep your head in a permanent state of confusion as your brain tries to decode the frantic, maniacal sonic input. It's all pretty f*ckin' trippy. My only gripe, is the same one I had about their previous effort, the songs have a hard time sticking. You'll have to give this many spins before you can even begin to differentiate between tracks. Still, I think I dig this one just a tad more than Corrode, so the band is headed in the right direction. One last thing, I have to mention that the band's web site (nanaochrist.com) is one of the most professional I've ever seen, and probably the best of any indie band.

Brave words & Bloody Knuckles

Twisted Insanity
As insane, twisted and bizarre as Mr. Bungle and Strapping Young Lad, Nanochrist employ significant amounts of programming overtop

hyper-kinetic vocals and industrial guitar patterns. Definitely out there. Elements of Fear Factory are also present as the songs switch from

crunchy to swirling at discordant intervals with a plethora of time signatures... Strangley tripping across the edge, Mythelectronicon is the fourth

album from Nanochrist. An electromagnetic cyberspace soundtrack with touches of techno, suitable for those embarking on a trip to the Twilight

Zone.
