Philly industrial band akin to Test Department, Einstürzende Neubauten, Amor Fati, Missing Foundation. I’m not a big fan of labeling music but it has always bugged me that the label Industrial got taken over by all those Wax Trax bands (even though I do like some if it.) To me Industrial band means banging on metal (sometimes with power tools,) not a bunch of guys trying to look tough while playing keyboards with choreographed lighting. Sink Manhattan delivered on the banging on metal and the stage at their shows looked like a junk yard. I’ve always liked covers that sound nothing like the original and Dioxen is a good example of that.
