THE YOUNG GODS / The Young Gods (1987)

The eponymous début album from the Swiss industrial trio is an early experimental, sample based smorgasbord that is the harshest and most visceral the band have ever been; there are moments when it reminds me of Einstürzende Neubauten.  Vocals are mostly in Swedish so I have no clue what Mr Treichler is singing about but it really doesn't matter.
It’s not an album that will win you over on first listen, it requires the right environment and the right kind of emotional state to fully appreciate.
