The ultimate unheard of cult band, Toxic Coma is a project from Velvet Acid Christ mastermind Bryan Erickson. Unlike the more structured approach to VAC, Toxic Coma allows for a more experimental, fun, psychedelic, and downright weird approach to industrial techno music, allowing the band to use noises and samples that wouldn’t work for VAC. Dance oriented and trippy as hell, Satan Rising does display the influence of bands like The Prodigy, Astral Projection, Front 242, Aphex Twin and Skinny Puppy in a unique manner.
This album is such a power hungry industrial hitter....different than your other albums....it sets a standard for a beautiful industrial masterpiece, well done and much respect to you always
Already prepared to nominate this the strongest new VAC album released in the past decade. VAC has long excelled at involving genre influences in electro-industrial music, such as trance—sometimes executed without equal, as in the case of the hard-goth tracks in The Art of Breaking Apart. Ora Oblivionis is a diverse album, a synthesis that comes together to feel quite "industrial" and unified as an album. Just slip on headphones and escape the mundane in this dark, harsh, beautiful world. Colin Patrick Barth
