Michael Mueller This as uncompromising an album as you are likely to hear.

Drose exist on the outer fringes of experimental art-metal, creating songs swathed in hyper-drama , confronting the listener with chaotic bursts that shatter unstable silences.

The vocals are haunting, terrifying and vulnerable. The closest touchstone is probably Scott Walker's Tilt. Though the sound is quite different, they share a sense of dread and doubt.

There's nothing else quite like this. And to me, that makes it brilliant. Favorite track: numerical control.

Gavin Hellyer Essentially a noise record high on percussion and floating frequencies competing and eventually rising to great levels with extreme vocalising. This release comes highly recommended for those of an open mind. Favorite track: a loss.

Llettingo There are few libraries this will not expand the boundaries of (maybe be concerned if it doesn't). Ideal execution of stark, brutal, clangy, industrial dismay. I'd buy this even if I hated it (full disclosure -I love it) just for the benchmark it is. Favorite track: the man.

about

Drose is on the forefront of the evolving experimental / outsider metal scene, and have developed a devout following from their incredible live shows. Their music contains the power and aggression of traditional metal music without the macho posturing. At times the heaviness takes on a sense of beauty or bittersweetness, aided by an alternately hushed and scathing unconventional vocal performance. Boy Man Machine is also built on a foundation of industrial machine samples which create a rigid, mechanical base that perfectly contrasts the overarching human elements.
