Strut Records bring you the second instalment in the 'Metal Dance' series, a great compilation of classic and rare industrial dance and new wave EBM. Compiled by Trevor Jackson (Playgroup, Underdog, Output Recordings) this 2 CD/LP set features a heady mix of darkwave and cyberpunk classics from artists like Ministry, Front 242, Skinny Puppy and Test Dept. all picked from Trevor’s own massive collection of records gathered from years of doing the London club circuit.

Standout tracks here are 'Dead Lines' from Skinny Puppy with it's gravel voiced vocal and thumping futuristic beat, or some hi-energy S&M disco from Visage's 'Der Amboss’, we also get a few rarities for our well earned cash like Trevor’s own re-edit of Rusty Egan’s ‘Twilight Zone’ and an unlikely inclusion of a rare b-side by pop legends Godley And Creme, this is a fantastic compilation for all you gimp mask wearing, glow stick waving cybergoths out there.

I bought this CD becuase I enjoyed the 'Metal Dance 1' compilation so much, but found this installation not as strong as volume 1. The mid-late 80s was pretty crap for whitey electronic music as hip-hop was causing all the innovation. HOWEVER it is interesting to hear how some of this daggy over-gated-drum machine sound was influencing what would become dance and rave music only a few years later. The early Ministry sounds better than the crappy grunge version later on, Skinny Puppy had their moment but I'm surprised why they chose a lousy Front 242 track here, and not their classic floor stomper 'headhunter', in fact the whole 'New Beat' sound from Belgium seems to be over-looked for crap like Visage and one of the most boring Propaganda (a real hit and miss band anyway) traxx I've heard... Maybe the 'new beat' sound will get their own comp? This one is purely for aging electro goths who miss the days of wearing lace gloves whilst interpretative dancing on smokemachine filled, strobelit dancefloors...
