Psyclon Nine are a band from San Francisco, California that plays a mixture of aggrotech, industrial and black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Icon Of The Adversary" which was released by Metropolis Records.
Industrial sounds start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music along with some spoken word samples also being utilized at times as well as the vocals also bringing in a great amount of black metal screams and industrial style vocals a re also used at times.
Elements of aggrotech can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while programmed beats and synths are also used at times along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can be heard and the closing track is very long and epic in length which also adds in a small amount of clean vocals.
Psyclon Nine plays a musical style that takes aggrotech, industrial and black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Psyclon Nine are a very great sounding mixture of aggrotech, industrial and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crown of the Worm" "Warm What's Hollow" "and With Fire" and "The Last". 8 out of 10.
