Power Man 5000 - Somewhere On The Other Side of Nowhere
Lead singer Spider (aka Michael Cummings the younger brother of Rob Zombie), the underground electro-metal band Powerman 5000 earned a popular cult following after 1997's "True Force" but it was not until the Napster craze that I found "Mega-Kung Fu Radio". After that, I was hooked. This new space age sounding electro metal was a new sound I have been waiting for. Then came "Tonight the Stars Re-Volt" that the band found its legs. Their love for old Sci-Fi and Horror flicks really help drive the sound of this band. But then came a string of not so powerful albums. Even so the band stayed together putting out their sound to the fans for over 12 years now. I was looking to give them a new shot and picked up the CD "Somewhere on the other side of nowhere". It is not to bad in fact I was unaware of their new tracks until this week. The release date was October 2009. After hearing "V is for Vampire" on the radio last week, I picked it up. There are a few gems on the album like "Horror Show" and "Time Bomb, Baby" help shape this into a good Metal CD. Nothing really new from the Powerman sound but if you're into Electic sound metal then this is worth picking up. If you are a fan of the band then you already have.
