Released only several months after the 'Year of the Female Artists' as dubbed by the music media, Diva X Machina serves to showcase the strong feminine presence on Industrial music. These sixteen artists show all sides of the more diverse gender. From the strong aggressive roles taken by Karen Kendall on Razor Skyline's, 'Queen of Heaven' and Beatmistress on Deathride 69's, 'Fucked Up Generation', to the more alluring sounds of Andrea DiNapoli on Venus Walk's 'Red, Black and Blue', it is obvious that female artists refuse to be stereotyped. Oddly enough it has taken almost two decades for these strong feminine roles to finally manifest themselves even with the presence of Cosey Fan Tutti in Throbbing Gristle all those years ago. Yet, many of these bands have recently taken the scene by storm grabbing up record contracts faster then their brethren. Gone are the days when female vocalists were relegated to warbling backing vocals and instead these bands have chosen to barge ahead to shatter all previous misconceptions.
