Biography

"Being in a band is as close as I could get to being a superhero," explains Powerman 5000 frontman Spider, whose raging onstage persona belies his natural introspection. "That's what this band's all about for me - it's like being in The Avengers or The Defenders."

Blurring the line between fact and fiction, PM5K's songs are soundtracks to the bizarre ... Read more in Amazon's Powerman 5000 Store

Editorial Reviews

POWERMAN 5000 returns with their first collection of all new material in nearly five years. BUILDERS OF THE FUTURE.

Powerman 5000 has carved out a corner of the galaxy where their devoted supporters created a culture that's bigger than music, drawing upon a tapestry of comic books, horror films and fantasy cobbled together years before 'geek' became a hip buzzword.

New tracks like 'How To Be A Human', 'Invade, Destroy, Repeat', 'Live It Up Before You're Dead' and 'Modern World' are turbocharged with the same futuristic, b-movie bite of enduring, electro-tinged Powerman 5000 anthems like 'When Worlds Collide' and 'Nobody's Real.'

Customer Reviews

Definitely a must buy for a PM5K fan!

This album is kinda in between "Tonight the Stars Revolt" and "Transform." Two really good albums.

I am a big fan of Pmk5's stuff, both old and new. This album did not disappoint! A couple tracks I could take or leave, but overall some really solid material. Tracks 1-5 are amazing! And the later stuff, minus the two mehs, is still very much enjoyable. I've already listened to it at least a few times through and can say that some of the songs maybe took a couple times before I could enjoy them, so don't give up if you don't like it at first :)

PM5K is one of those guilty pleasure bands that I just love for fun. This album is no exception. There is plenty of variety here and it was interesting to hear that Spider actually has a great voice for something other than hard rock in "I Want to Kill You". "Invade, Destroy, Repeat" is great for head banging, "This is How to be a Human" is very PM5K-like and of course my favorite track on the album. "I can't f Hear You" is good, I especially like how it rocks out when it begins. Unlike another reviewer, I found the Best Buy bonus tracks to be well worth the price and I probably like them even more than most of the regular songs on the album. Definitely a must buy for a PM5K fan!

Just recently I purchased Rob Zombies latest live DVD, and now a week later Rob's little brother releases his first album since 2011. I've always been more of a casual fan of these guys compared to Rob, but after hearing this album, man, I did not expect them to deliver a great album, but they have!

I can't remember the last time I heard an album I listened to from start to finish without skipping a track or two... but even when I almost did about two times on this album, I didn't! After hearing the whole album now, there is only about 2 tracks I don't think where that great, but for the most part every song on this album has gotten at minimum a 3/5 rating from me. A first in quite some time!

It's also funny, because a lot of this album goes against what I do like, so Powerman 5000 have definitely proven themselves as being able to utilize sounds and effects that usually just give me an instant headache and put me in a bad mood that anybody is allowed to use them at all, but these guys have gotten away with it!

My only criticism is saying good luck trying to play some of these songs live, as there is quite alot of effects, echoes, mixing, you name it, everything seems to have been used.

I was already impressed and rockin to the album on the first listen up until track 5 (builders of the future), then dreaded techno noises kicked in, and I cringed, however, by the time the song was over, it wasn't that bad! I give it 3 stars, but I do know there is an audience for it, and it wouldn't surprise me if that song charts! It's the kind of thing that would these days. Not my cup of tea personally, but like I said, I give it 3 stars, which is high considering I usually give techno -1 stars before even hearing it.

A quick history on my feelings about PM5K before I get to the review of this album, just to let you know where I'm at. I've been a fan of PM5K since 1999 when I got "Tonight the Stars Revolt!" album. I listened to their earlier stuff after I got that album, but didn't particularly care for it. It was PM5K's change in sound starting with TTSR that made me a fan. "Anyone for Doomsday?", while not being an official album (which I couldn't understand why not), was also awesome. Then, after that, their next few albums ("Transform", "Destroy What You Enjoy") just weren't as good. I guess Spider 1 was just trying something different, but didn't really work out well. Then when "Somewhere On the Other Side of Nowhere" came out, I wasn't expecting much, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. Then with "Copies, Clones & Replicants", while not original material (cover songs), was an awesome album with interpretations of some famous songs as only PM5K could give.

Now we have "Builders Of The Future", giving us some new (if not highly) anticipated material. It's actually funny, considering I've bought this album 3 times now! First, I bought a copy on PM5K's "pledge music" site, just buying the CD. Then I noticed there were different packages you could "pledge" for. I wanted a signed copy, so I bought that too. Then I found out that Best Buy has an exclusive version with 2 more tracks, so of course I had to get it! I'm not a die hard fan of PM5K like some people (I've never even seen them live), but I want to give my support since I love their music.

To all the people who say Powerman 5000 is dead, this album will make you think differently. I hear that many people think "tonight the stars revolt " was their last great album, or the unreleased " Anyone for Doomsday " was their last great album and in some ways they are right. However "builders of the future " will leave you genuinely impressed. To me IMOP it sounds like tonight the stars revolt and transformed combined in a very good way. The electronics and guitars give you a powerful punch and are very well mixed. The lyrics however could have been better and he repeats stuff a lot.

The first half of the album sounds like classic pm5k but near the middle, or after the title track, it sort of goes down hill. Not bad, but sounds like two different albums in one.

solid effort to get back to basics but not quite there yet. 4/5
