I'M A ROCK'N'ROLLER
ALBUM METARC, I-TUNES RELEASE: JANUARY, 2007 REVIEW: FEBRUARY 22, 2007
Prepare to enter a universe more bizarre than any you've yet heard. Uncotones, the self-proclaimed "electro" project of Mr. John Sellekaers (Xingu Hill, Torsion, Ammo, Ambre, The Missing Ensemble, Logatomistes and Moonsanto to name a few), has released it's debut album. This is indeed electro, but it is a menacing excursion of twisted melodies and stunted beats. Atmospherically, it has the same impact as the planet Venus'. Acrid, corrosive, alien, utterly unable to support life. Despite all of this, this album is surprisingly direct for emanating from the Metarc lair. It even has hooks. And vocals.
A literal inferno of technology, this misanthropic demon is fully realised in twelve glorious tracks of mind-numbing beauty. If you are amongst those ready to set foot where no humanity is left, to venture into the unknown abyss - a black hole torn from the universe's embrace - then check out Uncotones. Listen to their classic tune "MindEasyChord" and attempt to converse with those around you, behold the sensual scales of "Dead Soul Machine" and be not afraid. I postulate that this is the future of electronic pop music, yes it is pop damnit, a deliciously skewed, manipulated, mangled message you dare not ignore.
