Industrial metal band, Powerman 5000 return August 28th with a brand new studio album titled "The Noble Rot." It contains ten tracks that features a homage to the '80's dark music of The Cure, Depeche Mode and Siouxsie Sioux, along with a cover of the Go-Go's "We Got The Beat." Powerman 5000 kick things off with the intense, aggressive opener "Cannibal Killers That Kill Everyone" and their latest single "Brave New World," which works in a hip-hop style to lyrics. They slow the tempo down for the Gothic tones of "Black Lipstick," while "Special Effects" builds up the song's pounding rhythm. One of the highlights of the new Powerman 5000 album is the addictive "Let The Insects Rule" which has the perfect combination of raw metal power and edgy, industrial beats. The album finishes with the low, monotone, computerized vocals of "VHS" and a high-powered hidden track titled "When Worlds Collide."
