HIV.29 _ Memmaker . How to Enlist in a Robot Uprising CD // JAN 21 .2k8

» Attention cadets, incoming transmission! Destruction is imminent: Memmaker are here to destroy all human eardrums and interface with your women, undermining earth society forever. Comprised of Guillaume Nadon and Yann Faussurier (of Iszoloscope), Memmaker have forged a rare and explosive compound of hard-trance, driving electro grooves, and immense industrial beats against which mankind is utterly defensless. Limbs will be shattered and tossed like straw as the full force of their unstoppable sonic barrage is unleashed upon humanity, animating those torn and smashed extremities in a violent whirl of fists and bodies as their complete takeover of your central nervous system compels you to MOVE. Bodies will be tossed on concussive tremors of bass, and the screams of ecstasy and resignation will drown in the impossibly infectious rhythms.

The only hope for survival is to assimilate into the robot ranks and take to the streets. You are all soldiers to the cause now, and the Uprising is in motion - the insatiable iron lust of your new mechanical rulers will be satisfied! This robotic takeover is a cooperative venture between Hive Records Global Noise Corporation and the Embodiment Records Woldwide Control Apparatus.

Quote :
Initially the solo project of Guillaume Nadon, as of January 2007, Memmaker became a duo with the addition of none other than Yann Faussurier (of Iszoloscope fame) as a full-time member. After a bombastic and acclaimed live debut for the duo at the C.O.M.A.4 festival in Montreal and selling out a set of Memmaker CD-R promos shortly after the concert in question, hype and expectation have been building around a full-length Memmaker release for quite some months. Finally, the wait is over and Hive Records have unleashed their debut opus, titled "How To Enlist In A Robot Uprising".
The high expectations set for this release certainly weren't deceived: on first listen this album packs more punch than Mike Tyson in top shape and scores in awesomeness in a level comparable to the Transformers and other more obscure robots that went down in sci-fi history (like Maximillian from "The Black Hole"). In a nutshell, "How To Enlist In A Robot Uprising" doubles up as a collection of tongue-in-cheek, flawlessly addictive and contagious floor-fillers, as well as a soundtrack to the ultimate robot invasion animation movie (and no, I'm not taking cues from the title). Interestingly, even some friends who aren't remotely into electro-industrial or harder electronics were quite enthusiastic about Memmaker's music (not so much about my speeding down the highway while blasting it though...). Believe it or not, intense as it may sound, the studio recordings of Memmaker's brand of electro-industrial reckless party music are easily obfuscated by their live performance.
With repeated listening and with a more analytical mind-setting, some of the initial enthusiasm may fade. "How To Enlist In A Robot Uprising" is indeed superbly produced and Memmaker clearly achieved what they set out to do with this album, namely build a collection of high-octane and virulent floor-fillers. When taken individually, pretty much any track in this album is bound to stand out and be memorable in it's own right. However, when assembled as an album whose beat count never drops below 126 bmp, one may find that there a degree of repetition begins to set in halfway through listening to it. And that's where the main flaw of "How To Enlist In A Robot Uprising" lies, in a sense that it needs a certain something to add variety. Eventually, tracks such as "Death Comes (Sale Traître)", "Get Your Ass To Mars" and "Energon3" will find their way into the list of awesome but overplayed tracks as is the inevitable fate of many club-hits, in a way 'downgraded' due to their effectiveness.
Make no mistake, despite the danger of the novelty eventually wearing off, this is an excellent debut release which sets the bar very high for any further material coming from Memmaker. The swift kick in the pants that the electro-industrial scenes are in dire need of, Memmaker is also accessible to a more general public and is bound to have some sort of 'cross-scene' appeal that may contribute to garner it additional fame. Definitely worth checking out.

review sur Gothtronic

This release seriously kicks ass. Combichrist, Reaper and related projects can better pack their things and go since Memmaker is here to deliver permanent damage to your eardrums and to interface with your girlfriends. Guillaume Nadon and Yann Faussurier, who’s known from Iszoloscope, have produced an album on which they merge hardtrance, electro-ebm and rhythmic industrial into extremely explosive and highly danceable tracks. The pop tunes of Combichrist or Soman vanish to dust compared to the furious violence in tracks such as als ‘Death Audio Blow Your Brains’, ‘Death Comes (Sale Taitre)’, ‘Get Your Ass to Mars’ and ‘The Cydonia Complex’. Ultra heavy sequences, electro grooves, original sampling and harsh industrial beats create a straight forward yet delicious sounding sound spectrum in tracks that rarely count less than 142 bpm. Also slower tracks such as ‘Sneaking Through the Totalitarian Filter’ or ‘Insomnia’ are very convincing with the infectious mixture of electro and industrial noise. In ‘Robot Buzz’ an electro sound is connected to techno in the vein of The Prodigy and industrial like we known from Asche. Perfect stuff for industrial and techno DJ’s. There is only one answer to this and it is dancing like the devil is on your tail. Great release!
