CMI may be dead and buried, but Roger Karmanik apparently wanted to keep full control, so he founded a new label, Familjegraven, to release his own material. “With Promises Of Death” is the first effort.
The album contains dark and pounding, noisy industrial. Most of the tracks are not the chaotic, earcracking type of noise that BDN delivers sometimes, but more my kind of noise. “Death industrial” is a good way to describe the music. For those of you who know BDN there will be no big surprises. I am personally not an avid follower of BDN (in fact, this is the first album that I review…), but this new album sounds about as good as the wonderfull “Kamikaze Kabaret” of 2005. I do not know if I have heard each and every album in between, but there you might have an idea of the sound of the new cd.
