Marcel H. : I had never heard of Neurotic Machinery before ‘Cognitive Dissonance’ hit my doormat. This is already the fourth release and third full-length by the band. It is characterized by jumpy groove death thrash with some djent influences. A genre I am not at home with but can appreciate when executed properly. Well that aspect is okay with Neurotic Machinery. Tight and with a well-defined and quite full sound. At times parts that remind me of Burst pop up. Especially during the more subdued passages. All in all a fine album which I will spin more often.
