It’s funny how the human’s race vision for the future gets more and more bleak with advancement in technology. It seems counter-intuitive, but the more industrially advanced the race becomes, the more likely it is to have a dystopian future. Perhaps that is the reason industrial metal lends itself so well for a sci-fi tale of dystopia. Massachusetts based industrial metal duo Isolated Antagonist have been able to leverage their music to tell tales of what might be our future. The story continues in the band’s latest offering, ‘Affirmation of Entropy’. Musically, the band plays industrial metal in the vein of early Fear Factory, Die Krupps, Godflesh and the likes. To the standard industrial metal template, Isolated Antagonist add elements of death metal and atmospheric melody to create something they can call their own.
