FAINT, THE: Danse Macabre: CD

Aug 08, 2009

This is the latest release from The Faint, who are gaining quite a reputation. A killer live act, it is represented fine on their latest album. Evolving quite a bit from their previous release (Blank-Wave Arcade), they incorporate a stronger use of electronic instruments to their repertoire, as well as a local black-metal guitarist, Depose, who joined the band on their record and on the road. Whether it’s a great dance song or a dramatic minimalist electro track, The Faint deliver it all. Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, and New Order always come to mind, for the more popular comparisons. A great album. Thank god for vocoders. -Sarah Stierch
