By They Made Me Do It
"Oh no!" I think to myself as I read They Made Me Do It's press release.
We are a techno/dance/rock outfit and we recorded this CD in our bedroom.
"This is going to be horrible!" I say to myself.
Lesson 1: Never judge a book by its cover.
Lesson 2: Alex Quinn, owner of aforementioned bedroom, is quite possibly a genius as They Made Me Do It's (TMMDI) engineer, mixer and producer extraordinaire.
If Underworld, Apollo 440 and Funeral For A Friend formed a supergroup they would sound like TMMDI.
Each song on the band's self-titled CD is a raucous barrage of electronic beats, metal power chords, screams and melodies. Guitars chime down on bass riffs that rumble through epic songs which are bubble wrapped in samples, synths and delicious dance beats. And I don't even like dance music.
There's no need to pick out any particular song from this CD. All are on a high level of quality and subtly morph into one another without ever making your head hurt. In fact, they make you want to go back to track one and start all over again.
