Cultivating the rarely-used “avant-garde industrial metal” banner, Netherlands-based Empire of the Scourged have been in action since 2008, with Transcend into Oblivion being their first official release. Being that there’s a small sample size of like-minded outfits, the band’s use of programming (read: drum machines), dominant synths, and cyborg vocals recall on some level, the more brazen works of Samael, Tidfall, and the like. However, the steely and futuristic “Hollow Machinations of the Foul-Spirited” and “Trapped in this Massive Process” did their job in creating a dystopian vibe.
