Industro-Synthesis is yet another compilation of mostly undiscovered electro bands from all over the United States. And apart from the lousy artwork and design of the actual liner notes the compilation is amazingly good. A large portion of this might be due to the fact that at least half of the bands have had multiple tracks on other compilations and as such have learned a thing or two through trial and error. The overall mood of the compilation is towards dancey electro with just a few experimental ambient pieces thrown in for good measure. The strongest composition on the compilation is without a doubt the opening track by Manhole Vortex. While it does follow the standard electro formula to the letter, it does it amazingly well and serves as a great opener for the compilation. Other strong tracks include Dave Scott, Aghast View, Black Dahlia, and both 162 pieces. Overall a very strong independent collection of artists who are struggling to prove that American electro isn't quite dead yet.
