Lab Report return after a several year hiatus with their first release since Eric Pounder left the project to pursue both solo and collaborative efforts. Yet the loss of Eric as a contributing member seems to have no effect on the musical directions of the project. The Anti-Tank Guitar is still ever present as are the bowel movement inducing tones that have made Lab Report more of an acoustic terrorist movement than a band since their inception. The thing that has always me astounded me about Lab Report is that the majority of the elements used in the composition of their music are stringed instruments. While most pure 'Industrial' artists have forsaken the six string demon for samplers and keyboards, Lab Report continues to use guitars as well as a myriad of hand-made stringed instruments in the core of their music. The end result is a varying array of acoustic barrages that are both pleasing to the ear and nauseating to the rest of the human body. When played on an excellent stereo system, you almost feel the flow of the notes more than hear them, making Lab Report akin to a natural disaster and it's tonal potency.

Lab Report is: Matthew Schlutz & Derek Frederickson
