Over its career, ...And Oceans skewed so much towards electronic/experimental realms that the Finnish industrial/black/death metal outfit decided to change its name to Havoc Unit. This full-length debut picks up where ...And Oceans left off. Industrial metal underpins a bouillabaisse of sampled soundbites: Ministry meets Muslimgauze. In its prime, industrial metal was already prone to sample-slinging. The difference here is the degree of detail. Samples now run digital gauntlets of chopping, stretching, and general destruction. The result is a soundscape simultaneously epic and fractured. "Kill All Nations" crams together hip-hop beats, ethereal washes, distorted vocals, metallic guitars, and a mutilated symphonic sample. "I.Esus" stomps an old film soundtrack to bits, then runs it over with Psalm 69. The opening track, titled in Arabic, is a patchwork of roiling riffs, Middle Eastern chants, and glitchy electronics. Just when such miscellany verges on unlistenability, "Kristallnacht" sprinkles droplets of placid piano -- only to be steamrolled by redlined violence. Themes of anti-organized religion and anti-nationalism run throughout. This record is a headache, but for its genre, it has a refreshingly irreverent sense of absurdity. ~ Cosmo Lee
