Finally something new has come along in the nu-metal scene. It started with funk, like Primus, Faith No More, and Jane's Addiction. Then it moved on to rap, with Korn, Rage Against the Machine, and Limp Bizkit. Then it sorted to fade into emocore, when the Deftones became popular. Now it has seemed to take another twist, with bands like Pitchshifter, Linea 77, Static-X, and most importantly, Apartment 26.
Taking the less aggressive side of this new trend, this British band use techno breakbeats and various samples rather than hard edged guitars, although the latter is used more than once throughout this disc. The drums are high velocity and energetic, and don't slow down for air. The bass could definitely be louder, and it sounds as if it was produced without an amp. Biff's vocals are great, but still do not match up to Chino Moreno's, Brandon Boyd's, or Max Cavalera's.
The CD is quite long, but much of it is bonus tracks. Another thing I don't like is the use of the band's name in a song, something I've seen with Full Devil Jacket too. Most of the songs have the same kind of breakbeats to them, but there is always a different touch to each of them. Some of my favorites on this album are Doing it Anyway, Keep You, Bruised, Hallucinating, and Dusk.
Apartment 26 are the next new band in what seems like a new wave of European techno-metal bands. Kill II This, Linea 77, Rammstein, and Pitchshifter are all good bands from Europe. If you like your breakbeats and crushing guitars Americanized, check out Static-X, Ultraspank, Powerman 5000, and Dope.

Sadly, Apartment 26 have been designated critical whipping boys from the get go. Their first album, Hallucinating was one of the most impressive releases from the then current crop of metal/electronic fusion (including bands such as Static-X and Pitchshifter). But their biggest breakthrough was that they didn't rely in industrial textures as much as those others. Instead, they tended to focus on more blips-and-bloops oriented techno, to back up their standard heavy guitar assault (even occasionally wandering into trance(!)). Unfortunately, this was ignored, due to their lead singer being the son of Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler. This led the press to whine about favoritism being the only reason this completely unknown band got a spot on the Ozzfest tour.
The other thing perhaps holding them back then was that the album resolutely avoided any apparent emotion. No angst, ala Korn, and no cathartic rage, ala Static-X. Just really good music, that sounded like a really talented machine couldn't stop spewing forth great beats and melodies.
The best tracks on this album are the high-speed spazz-beat ones, such as the title track, and "Slicebeats". At some moments in these songs, it feels like you're slowly but surely being sucked out through some sort of vortex into a parallel dimension. The band is also reasonably adept at your standard mosh-ready guitar stomp, and when paired with their nice techno twist, a lot of the more generic songs come out sounding better than you'd expect. For the best example of this, check out "Basic Breakdown" with probably the best riff of the entire album. The song "Question of Reality" is without question the most intense track here...

This Debut album from Apartment 26 is fantastic. There are no weak tracks. With the exception of The Fear which depends on your mood. As most people who have heard of this band know, the singer Biff is the son of Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath Fame. I first heard of Apartment 26 with their song Backwards off the Mission Impossible 2 soundtrack. Half of that album was [bad]. I liked Backwards and then downloaded the songs the Hallucinating and The Fear. Let's just say I was not disappointed. Excellent combination of Hard Rock and Techno. It took a few listens for the keyboards to really stand out. Now this isn't industrial stuff like Nine Inch Nails. It really isn't that dark. I don't think a lot of the songs are about anything at all. But they are filled with good lyrics, nicely structured songs. And like I said, there are no weak tracks. Some people actually complained about this saying that this results in no standout tracks. Well if your like that then you should just stick with your bands that have 3 or 4 good songs on an album which result in 3 star ratings. At least that's what I do. Well here are the songs.
Songs out of 10, intros out of 5
1. Backwards 9/10: Great song lots of keyboards and cool lyrics.
2. Doing it Anyway 10/10: This song never gets old, it's also the most vulgar on the CD.
3. Slicebeats 10/10: It starts out like Backwards, but becomes something completely different.
4. Keep you 8/10: a Love Song But it's ridiculously catchy.
5. Apt. 26 8/10: One word, Cool.
6 Dusk 4/5: A 30 second intro of what's to come.
7 Hallucinating 10/10: [good]! Lots of techno, very heavy (for this band)
8 The Fear 6/10: Like I said this song really depends on your mood.
