so, it's rare to get a review that really encapsulates the totality of an album. which makes this review, from the nice folks at idie:youdie, the best one we've ever seen.
"An exciting and affecting new direction for a long-standing industrial musician, invisible_weapons might have less in common with any of his earlier work than anything Newman’s tried his hand at, but that only makes its success more impressive. Recommended."
another very solid review can also be found here, at newnoisemagazine:
"Amazingly, despite the post-metal and noise, this one’s quite catchy and unique. This is the band we all hoped Ministry would become."

some early reviews are in, and they are all pretty great:
"This is a perfect-as-can-be sounding album in this specific genre whose compositions provide an always entertaining and diverse sounding listening experience." - ChainD.L.K
"I would say that this is an amazing album that fits both well in the club and in the bedroom. Close your eyes let the music speak and take you through an amazing journey that will not disappoint." - Grave Concerns
"...“Sex.Drug.Sequence” is still a great listen, especially for those who appreciate the deeper side of music rather than hard beats and the party scene." - Das Klub
you should really go buy this album.
10 years after the album's completion, the new album from aec 'sex.drug.sequence' is now available in digital and compact disc formats.
the album serves as a bridge between the Battery Cage album 'World Wide Wasteland' and the Informatik album 'Re:Vision', as it was recorded between those particular records.
recently licensed the song 'slomo' out to video software company BorisFX, which they used in this sweet promo video for their new BCC v9 software. definitely check it out.
there is a new record out from the valley of wolves. it is called "play machines", and it sounds pretty different from the previous albums. it's much more electronic and is based more on improvisation than on endless layering. more synthesizers and fewer guitars. you can check it out and purchase by clicking here.

some nice new reviews have rolled in over the past weeks from our good friends at ReGen and iDie:youDie
"It will be interesting to see the finished film with the score in place, but until then, Tyler Newman’s Zonekiller would make for a wonderful soundtrack to any sci-fi adventure, be it in film or even video game form." - from regenmag.com
"...there’s no sense in letting Newman’s addictive compositions kill time in the penalty box in the interim: for your next Shadowrun table-top sesh, play-through of Blood Dragon, or trip through your mind’s eye’s own urban wasterland, Zonekiller is a must-have accessory." - from idieyoudie.com
awesome stuff, and much appreciated!
photos from our recent trip to spain are now viewable here. the photos cover calpe, madrid, san sebastian, and barcelona.
here is a great review from tyler newman's new film soundtrack 'zonekiller':
"This is a soundtrack album that could have been recorded 20 years ago, in all of its analog glory. That is, if you convinced Alan Parsons to lend you a 96 channel Neve console and a room full classic synthesisers."
"working on a new record at the moment seems like its been slow going but everything started coming together recently a little faster than expected so i think it will be out by the end of the year it doesnt have a name yet but reduces the guitar more than the other records so probably the title will reflect that"
from what i've heard so far, it's definitely more abstract and electronic than the other records, and is a significant shift from the black metal influences of the last album. i'm waiting on the sessions so i can start mixing, but it's definitely going to be fun material to work with!
'zonekiller (original motion picture soundtrack)' is now available through our store in both physical and digital formats!it leans towards the industrial and ambient genres, contains 17 songs, and is one hour long.
