The Missing Symp.toms (Part One)
- 01. Mental Wreckage - Wandering in the Dark
- 02. Mental Wreckage & Syndemic - Unilluminated
- 03. Mental Wreckage - Unusual
- 04. Empty.Shell - Arh+
In the 00s Symp.tom was one of the boldest trailblazers among the industrial hardcore labels. Now, a good decade after its demise, fellow time traveller Meta4 is honoured to release four lost gems by one of Symp.tom’s main artists, Mental Wreckage. Other than the revisited/remixed versions on the 2017 Dark.Descent EP, these are lost originals, treasures so far hidden.
One instantly notices how topical these still are: Rough and ready, bustling with noise and layers of atmosphere, well lined up for any contemporary DJ set. Get two relentless and upfront tracks, plus a percussive gem featuring Syndemic (a sadly short-lived production unit) and a bouncing finale by MW alias Empty.Shell.
And where there’s a part 1, one may also hope for part 2, right?
