Chemlab - _East Side Militia_
(Fifth Column Records, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 10)
Techno metallers Chemlab's _East Side Militia_ release is a boring assortment of samples, drum machines, and bland vocals. I was not at once interested in anything I heard on this release. While the band may be seen as innovative, original or even ground breaking in many people's eyes (who are these people?), I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth after hearing _ESM_. I do like a lot of techno-driven metal music (13mg., God Lives Underwater, Chemical Brothers, Ultra-Violence), as does Gino, but I'm turning my back on this one. The only cool track is the distorted/vocal style of "Electric Molecule". Did I say boring already?
