    i'm appalled at how few listeners the most recent album has. i still haven't given it a proper listening but it seems to be better than Inner Zone Journey which was hit or miss for me.

    'The Day I Start To Die' is certainly more subdued. It's a quite different feel of a track. Estefania's vocals are really the finest that I've ever heard them on any XMTP album. A monumental leap forward for her.

    im thinking the day i start to die is better than side of the wrong. damn this album flows all the way though! really into the songs

    Yeah, I never got into Santa Hates You, they do seem like a joke and their name bothers me for some reason. I will stick to the amazing Project Pitchfork ^^

    new album sounding great!! and... santa hates you has always been a joke... no point arguing with that guy lol

    The new album is indeed phenomenal! I must agree with DJ_Tyrant the production on this album is great as with all their albums.

    Obviously this is your favorite band and we all have different tastes. For me it was like listening to easy listening electronic music. I need more "oomph" in my music. I will only keep one song from this abum, The side of the wrong was an OK song.

    @tripodthunder - You. are. insane. This album is phenomenal and an even greater advancement in the "crossover" sound from the previous album. The pacing of the album is great. The production of this album separates XMTP from every other act in "mainstream" post-industrial, i.e. appealing to the widest audiences and not fringe subgenres like dark ambient or IDM. I would actually rate one, maybe two acts in those genres as slightly better mixed & mastered than this, but certainly not more. If anyone is expecting "4 on the floor" clubstompers from every track, then of course you're going to be disappointed, and really should look at more pedestrian acts. However, if you want a mature, nuanced sound, rich & deep layered songs, and THE crispest production values this album is for you.

    Add this album to the totally disappointed list of new releases for 2012. What a crap year for music, I hope Santa Hates You can make up for this. Last album was way better!

    It's not surprising considering the influence and technical engineering sessions that Sevren was involved in with his personal T.G.I.F. studio. Listen to early Evil's Toy and Armageddon Dildos and you can _definitely_ sense his involvement!

    'I Promise You a Murder' was the first song I heard by them and is definitely my favourite.

    Inner Zone Journey is indeed a masterpiece. It is quite different from the over-compressed hyper-aggressive tbm/aggrotech/modern ebm sound that most modern industrial fans are accustomed to. However, repeated listenings unveil a wealth of intricately layered sounds for those willing to explore this unique style. XMTP are, and always have been, true pioneers. It is criminal that there are so few listeners to this hugely influential act. TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT X-MARKS THE PEDWALK!

    They are brilliant! Every ebm/industrial-lover should check it out!

    I wish I hadn't sold all my CDs (Human Desolation, Drawback, Abattoir and 2 more I didn't remember)10 years ago. The 25€ I got for them wasn't worth it. :/

    Oh my, why I've never heard this before??? Each song is worth listening! And even in the last album they keep creating brilliant songs.

    @fastmat - sorry, my fault! JK. I haven't listened to 'Abattoir' as much recently since I played it so much back in the day. You're right it is a fantastic song though. What stuns me is that an act that is so prolific and influential in the scene has less than 19,000 listeners?! I suppose this is due to so much of the material being unavailable for so long. Now that Infacted Recordings has re-issued the entire catalog as a digital download hopefully this will change.

    human desolation is amazing!! im just getting into these guys. the new stuff like seventeen sounds lame as hell tho lol

    Abattoir track isn´t scrobbled in XMTP´s Top20? Are you fucking kidding??? Strange world. Real EBM gem.

    Now that I've had a chance to listen to it at length I quite like the latest album, Inner Zone Journey, even if it is quite different than the last three releases. Going back and listening to the entire XMTP catalog and side-projects (Ringtailed Snorter, U-Tek, Pax, Lighthouse, Hyperdex-1-Sect) I can appreciate the evolution of André's sound and influences from other facets of electronic music. It seems to me that with the clean vocals (plus Estefania's vocals) and more sedate (almost trance) sounds the album bears more similarity to Hyperdex-1-Sect rather than a continuation of the Facer/Maximum Pace/Monomaniac sound. For fans of the latest album I encourage you to seek out Metachrome from Hyperdex-1-Sect, especially the 21st Circuitry label version with remixes by Empirion and Download.

    Dreadful_YGG: I agree half of the album is downright awesome, there are a few crap songs but for the most part a great album. Winter Comes Tomorrow is fantastic!

    I am absolutely enamored with the new album. Its beyond words really. Something about the relentless drive of the songs and the enveloping tones that just hold you tight and thrash your body and mind in a tribal pulsating beat.

    album? 7/10... not bad, but I´d love to hear "Abattoir (Kill the Pop and Drum´n´Bass 2010 EBM remix)"... ;o)

    17 was good but not what i was hoping for. my expectations were probably just too high. i am glad that they are making music again though! im keeping my hopes up cause im sure that better tunes are yet to be made, :)

    It just bothers me and most other XMTP fans of the correlations drawn between them and Skinny Puppy. Most of this comes from the uninitiated who think that Skinny Puppy and NIN are the end-all-be-all of industrial music. It's like claiming that Green Day is what punk music is all about and then comparing them to the Buzzcocks. JAYSUS! Look, there is more to industrial music than the handful of bands most modern 'EBM' fans know. A lot of what informed Skinny Puppy also shaped X-Marks sure. They just arrived at different places. I like both bands. I don't think one copied or was influenced by the other though.

    I love how anyone with Wikipedia and torrented CD's is an instant expert on music made before they were born.
