Childman - _Childman_
by: Alain M. Gaudrault (not rated)
Once in a while, I'll get a demo that's actually tough to classify. Many bands like to feel that they defy classification, Childman succeeds. While the vocals are sometimes akin to a less distorted Alain Jourgensen (of Ministry fame), and samples are sprinkled throughout, the music itself is sort of a metal/hardcore/punk hybrid. I found it odd how the guitars sound mechanical in their approach, and yet sound distinctly analog. The last of the four songs, "Screaming", differs from the others in that the vocals are more sung, a la very early Soundgarden. In fact, the whole song reminded me of old Soundgarden. Don't get me wrong, Childman can still be considered metal, just not your run of the mill metal outfit. It took me awhile to get into this, but it was well worth the effort. Check this out if you're in the mood for something eclectic, mechanical, and heavy.
