THE GEMINUS SECT


"Gemination" (Sin Klub; 2002)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

A lot of electronica sounds like as though it was produced in the cold, dark basement of some poor lonely soul. Too often, it's got a cold, lifeless feeling that does little to engage the listener.

The Geminus Sect seem to have been able to peek their collective head out of the window long enough to emit other influences besides suicide, their own warped delusions and mopey, woe-is-me Goth rock. This duo's 12-track offering contains an industrial edge with beefy guitars and garden-variety vocals that linger between RevCo and Filter. 

While "Gemination" contains some bizarre sounds that would best be introduced by the Mike Meyer's Sprockets character, overall, the disc is dually danceable and heavy. Taking the harder side of the Goth/industrial scene and mixing in some metallic influence (a la KMFDM and Rammstein) The Geminus Sect's "Gemination" elicits as much fun as you can have without the latex pants and matching jacket.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
