Screaming Mechanical Brain – The Policy of Unilateral Hate (2012)Screaming Mechanical Brain - The Policy of Unilateral Hate (2012)

Screaming Mechanical Brain are one of those bands who seem to get associated with Avant-metal/experimental bands, such as Mr Bungle, Tub Ring, Ideamen, etc., which give you hope of what to expect from The Policy of Unilateral Hate.

However, what you get is pretty uninspired nu-metal/metalcore with keyboards. This would be more interesting to fans of Pendulum than of Mr Bungle. I found it boring overall, not very experimental, not very avant-garde, not very anything really, a bit pretentious

There is some consolation in the vague allusion to Tubeway Army in some the keyboard parts, and to Devo in A Series of Numbers (the only track on the album that I found that I liked, really).

Favourite tracks: A Series of Numbers
