Ginger Leigh - _Broken by the World_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
I was actually taking my time deciding on whether or not to review this for CoC. I decided to give it a chance and let the readers of the magazine decide if it was worth investigating. This is indeed a strange mix of sounds and styles, most noticeably drawing from the likes of Godflesh, Johnny Violent and Nine Inch Nails, though less of the latter's commercial substance. The beats of this electronic outfit are whisked into a fevered frenzy, as distorted sounds and samples make their way throughout the song. The end result? A mish-mash of sounds and ideas that sound like you're at a rave at times, but quite easily make it seem like you've been abducted by aliens and are in another world. Cool, creepy and just downright crafty. I think this belongs in CoC 'cause it will no doubt expose many people to a form of music they may not know of or really care for. We all need to just get away (especially us metalheads) and why not let someone else do the driving for a while? It's worth the trip to Ginger Leigh's world.
