I'd like to ask for help with identification of some older tracks.
Recently I have re-discovered my old MCs and among them one with some nice electro-industrial tracks, which I recorded from local (Central European) FM radio 10 years ago. I always felt they utterly rock, but unfortunately I don't remember the names of the artists anymore (though I'm sure the announcer has mentioned them). Now, as I bet there is a nice number of industrial music veterans among you, who remember production of industrial bands from late 90s and even from earlier times, I'd like to ask if you could try to identify these tracks for me, or at least the artists.
I hope it's not against forum guidelines to provide links to short (1.5-2.5 min.) excerpts from the tracks. That should be enough to ring bells in sensitive ears, I guess. The quality is understandably low, as I have copied the tracks from a tape into computer and encoded them at 96kbps to keep the files small, and the quality of FM recording wasn't overly good in the first place. Still, they should be easily recognizable for someone who's dedicated to these artists. If you know the name of the album/EP which they appear on, I would be extremely grateful.
So here we go :
SAMPLE TRACK 1 : Uncompromisingly harsh, typical 1990s electro-industrial piece, dense, multi-layered sound with many wicked samples and effects and intimidating male vocal. Gosh, those vocal chords must hate it's owner. Who knows what it is?http://rapidshare.com/files/286398084/RGK_SAMPLE_TRACK_01.mp3.html
SAMPLE TRACK 2 : Another, IMO even better and darker piece in similar destructive mood. Judging by the vocal and style, it could be the same artist as before, I don't know. This and the previous track would belong to the hardest e-i production I've ever heard, along with some experimental works of Trent Reznor and few others...http://rapidshare.com/files/286399313/RGK_SAMPLE_TRACK_02.mp3.html
SAMPLE TRACK 3 : Monotonous, dark, but strangely uplifting track. Good vocal I guess. http://rapidshare.com/files/286399461/RGK_SAMPLE_TRACK_03.mp3.html
SAMPLE TRACK 4 : We're drifting a bit to acid waters with this. I just love hard acid. I *suspect* it's either remixed Front Line Assembly, or FLA's remix of someone else - I vaguely remember the announcer mentioning FLA after this track, but memory is an unreliable thing and she could refer to something else.http://rapidshare.com/files/286399637/RGK_SAMPLE_TRACK_04.mp3.html
SAMPLE TRACK 5 : This track is, in it's full length, a real acid orgasm for me - and no epic trancey cheesiness. It would sound perfectly in some neo-noir cyberpunk movie. Actually, it's probably not by a recognized electro-industrial artist, rather by somebody who used to produce techno/dance electronica back then. Possible remix?http://rapidshare.com/files/286399779/RGK_SAMPLE_TRACK_05.mp3.html
That's about it for now. Any suggestions would help, even "Sounds like ... to me." Maybe I know the artists for years already, but I wasn't aware they have spawned such pearls... Oh and let me know if the files have reached download limit (10), I will re-up them. See ya later. =)
