The System Doesn't Work |Invisible Rec., 2005|

Warpath, Return of the Soldier, Never-Nothing, Fall Down, Free, I, Away, Greetings From The Southside, Faction/Discord, Rather Be Dead, Sympathy For The Devil

The idea of founding so called supergroups seems to be simple – every of the musicians add some of his experience and the band relies on the greatest listeners interest thanx to the famous names. There were only a few such collectives to mention Pigface, Dessau or H3llb3nt, but there are very interesting albums released thanks to such cooperations. Project .44 is the best one, which I have learnt for the last eight years about. Where is their power hidden? It’s not hidden, there are famous and talented musicians to begin with Charles Levi aka Levi/TKK, amazing bass player who played in a variety of bands like My Life With The Trill Kill Kult, H3llb3nt, Pigface, Bangalore, The Urban Soundtrack and many more. There is also Louis Svitek, probably the best known of his cooperation with Ministry (his guitar riffs and a studio production almost soaks out the two Project .44 albums released so far) and Mindfunk as well.

As for the music I think it was almost sure that there would be no accidental soft shit. Levi’s low tuned bass, sharp and jagged guitar riffs of Svitek, plus predatory Chris Harris' vocals with the dynamical section of the other musicians make an atmosphere you have met probably only on the 90’s Ministry releases like The Land of Rape and Honey, Psalm 69 or The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste. Besides so rad tracks like Warpath, Return of the Soldier, Free, Never~Nothing, Rather Be Dead (my favs three), I, or Faction/Discord there is one (Away) driven with an almost Spanish guitar vibe, but there are also heavy guitar riffs as well.

This album is recommended for all those who find "Rio Grande Blood" by Ministry too metal, and those who follow Charles Levi’s paths. It is sure he's doing well with yet another pure industrial rock venture.
