Error won't be just another Epitaph band, simply because they intend on being the Epitaph band...well, at least for the time being. Bad Religion founder and fellow Epitaph guru Brett Gurewitz joins ex-Tapeworm/Nine Inch Nails contributor Atticus Ross, his brother Leopold, and Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato for the maddening experiment that is Error. Their self-titled EP trips down memory lane by plugging heavy industrial-dance beats with more stylized electronic rhythms for a nihilistic set. Who knew Gurewitz, who's entering his forties, still had the steam to create a ruckus? From the explosive punk metal mix of "Nothing's Working" to the freakish electronic storm of "Burn in Hell," Error is far from miscalculating this jaunt. Between Puciato's violent screaming and Atticus Ross' intricate programming, the Error EP manages to capture everything alt-metal wishes it was with a brave new punk rock face. If the band's cover of 999's "Homicide" doesn't remind you of how great Front 242 and Skinny Puppy were in the late '80s, you've completely missed the point.

I really can't wait for a full record from these masters of discontent. I am glad Trent Reznor finally finished his record so Atticus could get on with his own projects. Here's hoping that NIN's new record will be as good as this nihilistic chaos. Makes you feel like you're scraping your nails against a chalkboard....and loving it. Tracks of note: "Nothings Working", and "Burn in Hell". Love the vocals, Greg sounds as possessed and evil as ever.....
