The albums opens with more that it's fair share of background samples appropriated from Blade Runner and then suddenly shifts into high gear dragging it's audience along at the speed of sound. Linda LaSabre, better known as Beatmistress, doesn't give her listeners a single second to catch their breathe as she piledrives on the percussion and charismatic vocals. DeathRide 69 is one of the few female lead industrial acts which doesn't feel constrained to work stay within usual roles that most female vocalists are pigeonholed into. Instead of using her voice as slender instrument to keep in harmony with the music she uses it to thrust her lyrics down the throats of her audience and shake them up a bit. Finally a female driven band, with dare I say it, a pugnacity to insult you to your face and make you come back for more. Perhaps all those other wimpy acts ought to take notice of Linda as being someone who doesn't feel the need for social posturing and will simply go straight for the kill.

Death Ride 69 is: Linda LaSabre & Mark ??
