Bile - _Teknowhore_
(Energy Records, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 10)
I have never been a real big fan of Bile, and let's just say with the release of _Teknowhore_, I still am not one. I've seen them live once (Foundations Forum Conference '94) and wasn't that impressed. Though the band uses lots of samples, visuals, and stage antics all coraled into one huge live presentation, it just doesn't seem to do the job. The music lacks something. Creativity? Substance? Whatever the case may be, the bottom line is that as these "industrial terrorists" hide behind their visuals or personalities (i.e. Omen, R.H. Bear, Slave) to create an image, and from that their music lacks. Playing the CD, it emits no real genius, just noise and more noise of industrial noise and absurd lyrics rolled into one. The band's debut album for Energy Records, _Suckpump_ (1994) wasn't anything to get riled over about either; just the same shit. I'm not recommending this CD to anyone. Okay, maybe Gwar fans. No, maybe not even them.
