Six years after their debut self-titled album and twelve years into their career, the South African industrial rock/metal band Terminatryx are back with a new full-length album. Shadow shows how female-fronted industrial metal can be done without opting for a commercial sound. If you expect pop tunes and sing-along songs, look elsewhere. Despite the massive use of programming and synths, Terminatryx's music is surprisingly soulful and sincere.

Hardcore ... Anal ... Hydrogen? Might as well name your band Djent Diarrhea Flagship or something like that! These musicians are mad as barking cats and they've created, without any doubt, the weirdest metal album I've heard this year. The moment this 22-minute-long album started, I had no choice to cover my face with both hands, shake my head in shame and disbelief, and control myself from falling into the abyss of insanity. What in all the gods' names is this music? The info sheet says experimental ethnic metal, and even though I'm not a fan of creating genres like ethnic metal out of thin air, I must say it's very close to what these guys play.
