State Voodoo/State Control

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Vincent Jeffries
With comparatively subdued agro-posturing and a penchant for experimentation, Monster Voodoo Machine set themselves apart from the opportunists anxious to re-create Nine Inch Nails' and/or White Zombie platinum industrial rock. The group's second EP, and first for D-Tribe, State Voodoo/State Control features plenty of Sabbath-meets-Ministry-meets-hardcore grinding that their early-years fans might expect.

With comparatively subdued agro-posturing and a penchant for experimentation, Monster Voodoo Machine set themselves apart from the opportunists anxious to re-create Nine Inch Nails' and/or White Zombie platinum industrial rock. The group's second EP, and first for D-Tribe, State Voodoo/State Control features plenty of Sabbath-meets-Ministry-meets-hardcore grinding that their early-years fans might expect. The smash-mouth drums and sweltering Iommi-like guitars that adorn the first five cuts three of which are remixed at the EP's end give way to the Wax Trax! rhythms of "Get on With It Buck Naked Mix" and "Born Guilty Detox Mix." Except for vocalist Adam Sewell's bad rapping, the many juxtapositions work well. Before dropping his pallid flow on "Voodoo #1" and its remix Sewell should have been reminded that non-ironic, sample-tweaking, guitar-wielding suburbanites generally posses way below average MC skills. Luckily, State Voodoo/State Control recovers nicely from the hip-flop double shot. The excellent guitar riffing on the first "Get on With It" and "This Ain't No Small Town" set the tracks apart, and Sewell spouts off in accordingly direct fashion. Altogether, the emphatic performances and intelligent material makes this sophomore EP a solid addition to the Monster Voodoo Machine catalog.
