ANYTHING FOR THE DEVIL
Hello, Cleveland! Ohio’s latest industrial metal clan Rikets try on the wares of Marilyn Manson, Static X, and neighbors Chimaira on for size on the band’s five-track episode, creating a tumultuous exhibit of rabid, rapid fire metal. From the grinding groove of “Bitter Words” to the machine-like rumblings on “Useless”, ANYTHING FOR THE DEVIL is a boisterous ride through electronically manipulated metal that has traces of loathing a la Korn built in for an extra dose of aggression. If you like angry music with a techno edge, Rikets holds its own amongst the pack of low-end chugging acts.
