You can't expect a CD that clocks almost 74 minutes to be interesting the whole way and it's no different with Anosognosic Industry of the I, but I still think it's remarkable what Vladimir Cochet shows on his latest effort. The music is a mix of death metal like Hate Eternal and black metal in the vein of Emperor. Usually I don't appreciate a blend like this at all and Anosognosic Industry of the I don't make me think otherwise, but I admit Vladimir does a good job doing what he does. However the music does get somewhat strenuous in the long run.
The songs are detailed and moving thanks to a considerable use of electronic samples. The song-writing is decent and Vladimir show he's good at coming up with some atypical ideas along the way. However things do tend to get dragged out a little too long now and then. It's rare to hear a one-man project where the drum-programming is done as believable as it is on Anosognosic Industry of the I, but sometimes it gets a little out of hand like on "Love, Death's Betrothed" and "La Mauvais Oeil" - the drums sound way too computerized. The production is clinical, industrial and compact. It fits well with the feel of the music.
Anosognosic Industry of the I is an alright release, but it's an effort that first and foremost will appeal to fans of Emperor and black metal inspired death metal and I'm neither.
