I really like this album and I think the intent of the musician is somewhat more involved than the lyrics would have you believe. I think he is railing against the church and how it has distorted and destroyed whatever purity there was about the early Christian movement.

Musically, the horror film samples work well next to the distorted vocals. The synths sound fantastic and the percussion has a nice amount of grainy distortion added so that the tracks are rarely boring, if at all - they pound, scream and soar through the average sonic boundary.

I agree with Virus mag's review in that this album is not the most original thing out there, but the concept of the album is interesting and keeps it all pieced together. There's nothing bad about this album per se, but nothing really grabs my attention as being too exciting in terms of originality.

Nevertheless, a good album for fans of dark electro/industrial/terror EBM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apparently misunderstood, even by the fans.... June 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Reading the reviews people have posted for this album, it's apparent that they don't quite understand the concept behind this album. So, I'll begin my review by clarifying it a bit. This album is about war between good and evil in the context of Christianity (or even more broadly, Abrahamic religion). The tracks include the perspective of Evil and the perspective of "Good" in terms of trying to recruit others to their side, engaging in the conflict, and the ensuing chaos. It even includes a more neutral, conflicted perspective. Yes the tracks are dark, both musically and lyrically, but they possess a substance and creative expression of a classic concept that you don't commonly find elsewhere. In any case, the great thing about a person's appreciation for music is that they can emotionally interpret it how they like, but before you say the album as a whole is anti-God or Satanic, please read the lyrics.

As for the musical qualities, some tracks have distorted vocals, others are more instrumental with voice samples from films. All-in-all, the music goes well with the contents of each piece and works wonders on the visual imagination that goes with the subject matter. My personal favorite tracks are "Disciples of the Watch", "God's Wrath", "Sweet Evil", "Loss of Faith", "Burning Heaven", and "Psalm". In terms of danceability, "Disciples of the Watch" is great for waving and gliding and "Loss of Faith" is great for popping.

If you choose to buy this album, it's definitely among the better dark electro-industrial works out there. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE CHILD DEVIANT! June 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I picked up this album at a record store and had no idea what it was going to sound like. When I got in my car and popped it into the CD player, I was hooked from the first track. The production is impressive. The music of Distorted Memory is definitly along the lines of spooky industrial elecronica (EBM). The lyrics are all about religion and why it sucks. I love the song "Sweet Evil", and "Confession" most of all. Lyrics like "redemption for your sins denied, a life of hatred, scorn, and lies"...should help give you an idea of artist's direction. This is a verry aggressive Industrial dance album that borders on violence. Fans of Psyclon Nine, Suicide Cammando, and Grendel won't be dissapointed. I consider this to be one of the best Electronic-Industrial albums of 2007.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice suprise! June 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I didn't think that this was ganna be an album that I would enjoy, but I got to hear it all the way through and I think it's actually excelent. It's a brutal anti-christian Industrial/EBM band that is shure to please any fan of Suicide Cammando. Verry good production, includes a cool photo of the artist and all the lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music- 5 Stars. Lyrics- 1 Star October 10, 2009
By SB
Format:Audio CD
Musically this album is excellent. It is almost in the same company with other great acts like Grendel and Tactical Sekt: pounding, hyper-velocity electronic extremism, with screaming, voxed out vocals that sound like a serial killer rose from the grave and grabbed the mic. Fantastic heavy beats I can smash the floorboards to.

The problem is the ridiculous theme, samples, and lyrics. I just can't get into the Satanic/sacrilegious thing. I mean, the Catholic church is not exactly the overwhelming force in people's lives here in the 21st century. The status of religion as an influence on Western culture couldn't get much lower. So why do these dark electronic acts like Distorted Memory, X-fusion, Tamtrum, Agonoize, Virtual Embrace, Amduscia, etc. fill their albums with demon and devil worship, and songs about damnation, the apocalypse, the hypocrisy of the Catholic church, and general condemnation of Christ, heaven, god and whatever have you? It's just irrelevant, and also childish and stupid. When I hear samples of some priest from a horror movie banishing some devil to hell, or some fallen Catholic complaining about how he hasn't been to confession, I just laugh.

I'm fine with songs about murder, kinky sex, hatred, alienation, madness, serial killing, and whatever other creepy cliches make up the other usual subject matter for industrial/electro artists. That's all good. Just get off the freaking religion thing. Or at least sing about it in German so I can't understand the lyrics!
