Psyclon Nine does not write music for the faint of heart. In 2003, the first album; Divine Infekt immediately earned the band popularity worldwide with its extremely dark, fast paced music and lyrics. In 2005, the band released its first U.S. album entitled INRI after signing with Metropolis Records. INRI featured thirteen tracks of dark, aggressive electro assault focused on religious themes. This was followed up shortly after by 2006's Crwn Thy Frnicatr, an even darker album, full of evil beats, haunting melodies and Nero's distinctive whispered-scream vocals. Over the course of these albums, Psyclon Nine has continued to evolve into its own sound, implementing elements of black metal, post-punk influences, and metal. Now, after two years of silence, Psyclon Nine return with We The Fallen, its darkest, most aggressive album to date. For We The Fallen, Psyclon Nine has enlisted the help of Jason Miller (GodHead) for final tracking and mixing. Dark electro doesn't get much more evil than this.
Do not pick this up expecting Psyclon Nine. This is like the perfect score for a really twisted horror film. Menacing, brooding and dark. Very different from what you expect - and that's why it's so good. vikingfan01
While this album can be monoteous & Skold can't properly handle high octaves on Equilazer i salute it's clever use of minimalism - things like instantly memorable pulsating beats in Fiction, secateurs-like sounds in Decay, Decay, compressed church organ in Murder Suicide. All of this is wrapped up into suitably cold OG industrial soundscapes with interesting, open to interpretations lyrics deeply exploring spiritual satanism & dark mythology. At last it will finish you off in Leviathan Abyss. Symbolic ‡ Tentacles
In 1996, I signed up to be a Boston area field marketing intern for Energy Records. This is how I discovered Bile. I remember the folks at Energy came to Boston and took me to see them play. It was this album that started it all for me. I still love this album. It's as fresh then as it is now. While I don't work in music anymore, it was such an extraordinary experience and will forever treasure this gem! Mike Stewart
