Amebix - Sonic Mass

Amebix are back with a new album, the first since 1987s Monolith. That's a hell of a long time between recordings so of course it doesn't sound like their earlier material but after giving it many repeat listens it's  starting to grow on me. Sounding more like an industrial rock band than their crusty past. It's getting a lot of comparisons to later era Killing Joke and I can even hear a hint of Ministry but there's still the distinctive Amebix sound intact. This change in direction will probably divide their fans but I suggest you give it a few spins to digest before deciding. 1st press is on red vinyl, available now at Easy Action Records
