It's good to finally see the Northwest Elektro-Industrial Coalition finally get the large scale publicity that a compilation of this kind can produce from a midsize label such as Cleopatra. With the recent record contracts for SMP, Kill Switch... Klick, Noisebox & And Christ Wept there is an obvious well of untapped talent in Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. The music is wide and varied as would be expected from such a diverse genre. The label on the jewel case might implicitly state Elektro-Industrial but that doesn't even begin to do justice to these bands. The sound varies all over the sonic spectrum audible to the human ear from grinding chunks of guitar, dancefloor mayhem to aural masterpieces of ambient experimentation. If you haven't had any experience with the NEC I highly suggest you check any of these numerous bands out. And remember there is more than Grunge music in Seattle!
