Huge fan of dystopia, always have been. Their ability to encapsulate the plight of the human condition through music is next to none. The age old dilemma of existential angst many of us face each and every day are made tangible with each and every album these talented despondent's release. Which is why I have to bring to light some of my criticisms with this album whilst the rest of the obedient masses of the anti-authoritative youth culture digress.

The album seems lazy. Most of the material can be weighed in audio samples in which the band is so famous for integrating and enhancing their songs once completed. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as one could argue each track is more than just a song with lyrics but rather an exercise in complete creative control over a work of art that transcends the boundaries of the pre-ordained model of song production. I will have to say the former.

Audio samples aside were left with several tracks that seem rather uninspired then their previous work. It took them years to follow up human=garbage which seemed as though nobody really cared anymore and rather just chose to tackle the new album as a chore rather than the next progressive step in the band's misanthropic journey through life and music. The lyrics stay true to the bands identity, never opting for shallow self-indulgent poetic dribble, but rather a comprehension of a brutally honest yet sincere suicide note found next to the nightstand overshadowed by a hanging corpse.

You can’t blame them for not delivering, somehow through all the pain and suffering these tortured souls feel, all the misfortune and neglect life throws at them(and you), they still had enough energy and patience to give the grateful and jilted masses one last ride through dystopia. Control All Delete is an epic thrash metal piece that describes the perils of a life seen and lived through the computer. From the heights of control, to the bottom of the barrel, life as we know it will be experienced and destroyed through the use of ill-guided, exploitative technology. What made dystopia so successful was the downtrodden parity they shared with their fan base. No self-important political agendas, no constructs of a drifter’s life only a few are willing to live, but a universal feeling of hopelessness that everyone experiences.

You can compare this body of work to that of a cinema directors body of work. If 'the aftermath' was there gritty surreal breakout first feature, than human=garbage was their masterpiece. No need to argue which one was better. Some prefer the grinder, sludgy, raw unpolished sound of the aftermath, while others prefer the doomier, haunting thrash metal aspect of human=garbage. They are both equally important and prolific entries into the dystopia mythos.

I expected a lot more from this album in which took almost ten years after the last to be released. I mean at this point, if you have nothing else to say, why bother? But who am I to pass judgment as if all music must be created to please everyone else never fulfilling your own desires and wants, all the while turning the cog of the capitalist regime that crushes your soul and bones slowly day in, and day out.

6/10.
