Album Review: Subsource - 'Tales From The Doombox' (Doombox)
Fusing dubstep with cyber metal with great aplomb
6 / 10
“Something sinister is rising on the horizon”, declares MC Kimba, and he’s probably right. Entering Subsource’s world is like battling a land of club-dwelling, genre-melting vampires; if you’re not prepared, you’ll be trippin’ worse than if you’d necked a bad dose of herbal highs. Rock bands playing dance music is nothing new, but there’s an intrigue surrounding Subsource because they succeed where Innerpartysystem and Pendulum don’t deliver. Perhaps it’s their conviction for social injustice via a group-vocal exploration of electro reggae. With added dubstep and ravers’ cyber metal in check, these lads have got fusions nailed like The Prodigy teaching a noise violation seminar to Sonic Boom Six.
