Bride of the Atom - _Web of Spider_
(Broken Image, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
This is quite the listen. Quite a unique ensemble of characters and idea makers form the abstract sounds of Australia's Bride of the Atom. Think ambient noise a la Skinny Puppy and the weird ways of, say, Soma or Tribes of Neurot, add a really bizarre vocal style and you've got a good idea of what BotA are all about. Hard to grip at times, BotA is actually quite the listening experience if you can handle the task at getting into it. In steps of moving things forward at a smooth pace, BotA make sure their music grows as we go deeper into the bowels of the record's creativity. Hard to believe the momentum this band attains through softened vocal style and odd timing of their musical instruments. Fourteen tracks shape this disc into a wild journey for us all to take if we're up to it. Not for everyone, but guaranteed satisfaction for those that actually want to put things aside and let the mind wander off a bit.
