San Francisco’s long-running Depressor started out as Fear Factory/Godflesh-style robo-crunch but evolved into a crusty, power-electronic hardcore band. Imagine Doom mixed with Skrew mixed with Neurosis.
Although Symbols is indicative of the band’s later sound, Depressor is more than just the sum of its influences. The album has all the earmarks of industrial music, yet Symbols remains defiantly punk. Depressor takes elements of existing styles and forges them into something original. Isn’t this exactly what good bands are supposed to do? Depressor never really got theirs back in the day. Don’t miss out now.
