Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Nic Endo is the member of Atari Teenage Riot responsible for the "noise" ingredient. Her most impressive solo work, 'Cold Metal Perfection,' gained her accolades across the board. An impressive synthesis of way-out-there avant-garde jazz and up-to-the-minute experimental electronic music.

Review

"Endo's daring experimental electronica opus hits like a stiletto-heeled boot to the eye." -- Alternative Press

I saw the other review of this CD and was shocked,I have no idea why anyone with half a musical bone in their body does not appreciate this CD.I really enjoyed it,if somewhat overwhelmed by it at first and then I realised its brilliance.There are jazz influences on many of the keyboard riffs,classical influences and raw electronica.I have always loved Nic Endo's work with Alec Empire and this just proved to me she is a fantastic modern musician .I feel Digital Hardcore and Geist bring something incredibly special to modern music,a raw intesity that is rare in a music scene dominated by popmetal and soulless music.

(...) If you would, kindly go back to listening to your Limp Bizkit records and please leave this music alone.
With that outta the way, let it be known that this is one of the more unusual and challenging electronic albums to come out in the past few years. It's a dark, quirky mix of jazz, old-school electro, and industrial that I don't think I've heard anywhere else lately. Yeah, the influences are obvious(Herbie Hancock, Igor Stravinsky) and any intellectual snob could dismiss it as derivative or unoriginal but the bottom line is there needs to be more women thinking like Nic Endo in electronic music, and music in general, for that matter. There are too many whack female DJs that are getting known simply because they are a female in a male-dominated genre (like most genres of modern music) and Nic Endo has effectively risen above this with her own unique style. At first, the title "Cold Metal Perfection" suggests something harsh, militant, and industrial (like most of the other Digital Hardcore she is known for) but, as the music sinks in it seems more like a portrait of a foxy android sex machine who's had enough of doing what she's programmed to do.
From the get-go, this record may seem difficult to many listeners. It may be confusing to people who are accustomed to certain approaches to electronic music or it may just appear to be a sloppy, lazy cop-out (this girl's techniques are very lo-fi (...)). However, upon repeated listening, it's clear how sullen, sexy, and sophisticated it really is. And for all you fellas out there that still aren't willing to recognize, Miss Endo happens to be a startlingly gorgeous babe, so go on and buy her frickin' album, already.

This is a brilliant album and 'yes' it does take some time to understand it fully - for those looking for some electronic pop merchant go for Radiohead or the Pet Shop Boys. This album is a truly inspired atmospheric album that at different times takes off into steady electronic rock swing - in particular "I Didn't Exist" and "One Night Domination".....
Nic Endo's "Cold Metal Perfection" is exactly what the title suggests - an edge, a robotic swing, but also a highly sensitive work of unique contemporary music that has no real equal out there - except of course Mr. Empire's own special vision.
If you enjoy this album try Alec Empire's "Low On Ice" and more comparative "Hypermodern Jazz 2000.5", don't let the people who don't have the time or sensitivity to appreciate Nic Endo's fine effort lead you astray.

fist off: nic endo is a clasicially trained jazz musisian, O.K.? this might be why if you do not like "jazz" or other experimental musik formates you proboly wont like this album.
i must say that the first time that i listened to this album it didnt get me going, but oh well. i listened to it a couple of months later and then actually LISTENED to it...IT ROCKS!it starts out with a sample form "bela ligosies dead" and only improves. with song titles like: "neon sunrise", "black light rituals", "crystalline curcuits" how can you go wrong? and these are not even the best titles.
i would sugest this album to someone what likes alec empire 's more mellow albums like "space jazz".
