Download began as an outgrowth of the infamous Canadian industrial band Skinny Puppy. Furnace, their debut album, was released as the group was being torn apart by creative differences and personal tragedy; band member Dwayne R. Goettel died of an overdose shortly after primary recording was complete. Against the backdrop of this bleak origin story this album spans an incredibly vast range of electro-industrial territory, alternating between sublime breakbeats and sheer sonic chaos. Try it and hear for yourself, there’s absolutely nothing else like it. Highlights: Beehatch, Omniman, Noh Mans Land, Cannaya.
