IAMX – Metanoia


‘Say Hello Melancholia’

IAMX’ is no easy listening music while driving a car or jogging through the park. For a unthinking listening beside of other activities, the sophisticated songs are much too good. Rather, it is the pure enjoy of electronic music with deep essence.

The opening song ‘No Maker Made Me’ is an awesome soundscape with a lot of stuttering synth effects and futuristic industrial sounds. I can strongly identify myself with many songs on this record.

Especially the song ‘The Background Noise’ did this to me. This is a very emotional song that you can truly capture only with an corresponding experience of life.

But I love also the singles ‘Happiness‘ and ‘Oh Cruel Darkness Embrace Me‘ as well. Both are breathtaking songs, analogue to this the music videos are too.

After the mediocre album ‘The Unified Field‘, ‘IAMX’ found back to his strength. Every track on this album sounds unbelievable unique. And it’s such a fantastic voyage to listen this album over good speakers in your living room very loud.

If you like bizarre sounds and extraordinary compositions, then you are guaranteed happy with this album. All songs move in melancholy mid-tempo and sound extremely bleak. I bow to this bold and impressive album. I love it.
