The latest album by local industrial metal pioneers is yet another testament to their ample creativity by offering a diverse collection of songs that can’t be easily pinned down.
At their core, Pedigree remains a band in love with heavy music and its inherent beauty. What makes them stand out from the endless number of cheap copycats of Godflesh, Nine Inch Nails and Ministry is their dedication to crafting an interesting song – there isn’t one like another. Adding a hefty dose of electronica, punk and hardcore to their innovative brand of industrial metal, Pedigree never disappoints. The new album even has a few tracks with prominent acoustic guitar, which quite surprisingly doesn’t sound out of place at all.
Everything is in service to the song and that means the experimentation never really ends. If you reach that point in a band’s life, anything is possible.
