Released: 2002, Sanctuary Records
Hailing from England, Pitchshifter have been around for the past 12 years, combining a mix of industrial, electronic, metal, and punk on PSI, their first release for Sanctuary.
“Stop Talking (So Loud)” opens the CD deceivingly in a low-key manner, yet picks up the pace halfway in. “Eight Days” is full of aggression while “Shutdown”, the first single, shows what Pitchshifter is all about.
Vocalist JS Clayden spews his lyrics in a pissed off FTW manner, yet the songs retain a melodic edge about them. Although similar in style to Gravity Kills, Orgy, and NIN, Pitchshifter have the potential to be a frontrunner in this genre of music with this release, if it’s not too late. For those who believe Ozzfest features a metal line-up.
