RxGF Any Other Way CD Review

The titular beginning to Any Other Way is a track that ties together Garbage, Atari Teenage Riot, and an earlier, late seventies / early eighties goth sound (Siouxsie and the Banshees, 45 Grave) into something that is instrumentally intense while having a very approachable sound. Flesh and Bone further varies up RxGF’s sound in its inclusion of dual harmonies; the shuffling sound of the synths and drums create an effort that is ready for dance clubs as well as dark bars. The dichotomy that is created between the human and the inorganic is built throughout Any Other Way; The Dying Grace of Machines shifts the balance of RxGF’s sound into a much more instrumental-heavy format. The move towards this sound allows for an effort that is equal parts Nine Inch Nails and Sisters of Mercy, all while the same funky, dark dance sound is issuing forth through the speakers.a0274228016_10

Kontrollier Die Kontrollierenden is a nigh-six minute track that has RxGF establish a very coherent sound, drawing from the traditional of Rammstein and Antichrist Superstar-era Marilyn Manson. The personality that is imbued into the track by the vocals provides listeners with the momentum needed to complete Any Other Way in a strong fashion. Belladonna Dream is a cut that is much shorter than the average track on Any Other Way, but is so dense and intricate that listeners will need to listen to the track multiple times to discern all of the twists and turns that the band has insert.
