The Bombs Of Enduring Freedom - "Megaton" (2012)


Year: 2012
Genre: Industrial
Country: UK

Track List:

  4. Predator Drone (Hellfire Edit)
  5. No Secret Is Revealed

TBOEF is a brainchild of James Fogarty aka Mr.For, a former member of a relatively well-known experimental black metal band The Meads Of Asphodel, and a current member of Old Forest (black metal) and Jaldaboath (black/folk metal). He also had an experimental electronic/dark metal project called Ewigkeit, started in 1994 and discontinued in 2006. Unfortunately, I haven't checked out any of Ewigkeit's albums yet, but I definitely will, as the mix of genres (progressive/industrial/black metal) seems to be very promising.

Out of all Mr.Fog's projects, TBOEF seems to be the most relevant to my blog (as pointed out by Mr.Fog himself - yes, he does know about RABM!). Yes, the music on this EP is mostly electronic and generally far from metal, but fans of Ministry, KMFDM, Pitchshifter and other 90s' industrial rock probably won't be disappointed. As for the ideology, it's critical of US imperialism and global capitalism. Of course, all releases from TBOEF are officially available for free download. If you're unsure whether to download this EP or not, then you can watch this video first:
