Dynamic, Diverse, But Not Over Done

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a big fan of industrial and electronic music I've been exposed to a large amount of good and bad albums. I count the Los Angeles based Spahn Ranch's "The Coiled One" in the good column. When I used to vend music at industrial and goth clubs I made a point to turn a few younger industrial music fans onto this album. (As an interesting aside, "Spahn Ranch" is also the name of the old western filming set that Charles Manson's gang was based from.)

My favorite tracks (which you can listen to) include "Locusts" and "Compression Test". Locusts is fairly upbeat and aggressive, while Compression Test is a much slower and measured track that is more reminiscent of older Belgian-styled electronic body music (EBM). Others have suggested listening to "Heretic's Fork", and though it is not my favorite track, it is still a good track and very representative of this album. Please listen to all three tracks and decide for yourself if you like this album.

Other tracks like "The Judas Cradle" can be best described as good guitar based industrial akin to KMFDM or Denmark's Birmingham 6. Overall, this album represents a good mix of guitars and electronics and non distorted vocals.
