2 stars I'm really not sure what to think of this.

Russia's one man "Senmuth" is an interesting project. The music is an odd mix of ambient, industrial, metal, and ethnic. At some parts, the music is fast paced, heavy, and very industrial, while at others it's slow, symphonic, and ethnic. The dynamics in some of the songs are nice, building from a quiet piano/synth piece to a heavier industrial metal part. Most of the songs can be either very boring or just difficult to listen to. The vocals are somewhat distorted, which makes the Russian even more difficult to bear. Very little of the music is enjoyable in the least, and much of it is just industrial mush. The song "Perpecc" has a not-so-industrial feel, although the vocals are again distorted and very odd. Other than a few not-as-industrial riffs, the album is very straightforward and can be extremely boring.

ALBUM OVERALL: Senmuth's debut, Cognitive Discord, isn't exactly what I would call a good first impression. The great majority of the album is traditional industrial metal, and isn't progressive at all, despite the layered synth backgrounds. The album can be a bore to listen to, especially because there is almost no constant rhythm of melody. 2(-) stars.
