Thanks guys, that was awesome. Capital Punishment is absolutely my favourite track as well. I listened to the Metropolis Bunker Gate Seven edition for the first time this week and I just can’t understand why the track order was changed.
Yeah, I’m really not a fan of the porn sample on Torn Skin (in case you haven’t read me ranting about it on twitter). I thought it was cool when it came out but I was 15. Now not so much. It’s just really a tired trope, in my opinion. Haha, it sounds like someone being murdered? What? Can I please be murdered like that when I die? Sounds pretty cool. 🙂
Glad to hear you guys also enjoyed Alien Res. Frenchie girl here, who liked Jeunet’s work from before, so kinda biased but I am shocked such a small number of people got into that movie and what it was trying to do. Sidenote, can someone please edit the whole Firefly series and put Ron Perlman’s face on Jayne’s body instead of the other asshole? Since he’s basically playing the same character in Alien Res they don’t even have to reshoot anything.
You’re both really good at communicating your enthusiasm, by the way. It’s great!
Thanks Sophie! We did indeed notice you talking about that sample, which is halfway why we felt the need to address it. 🙂
And yeah, we get super excited when we talk about this stuff, good to know it isn’t putting people off!
I’m really glad you guys did a commentary tracks for this album. I was introduced to Industrial back in my freshman year of high school in 2004 when a friend of mine gave me a “mix CD” that only had :Wumpscut: and Funker Vogt on it from what I can remember. Songs on the CD like Mortal Highway and Dying Culture drew me to Bunkertor 7, and it ended up becoming one of my first favorites that I still love listening to these days.
