      Leæther Strip
      "Mental Slavery"

      "Mental Slavery" is without a doubt the most open and club-oriented album from Leæther Strip since Claus Larsen's return to the forefront of the electronic scene. This masterfully delivered, angry and upbeat release deals with the mental distortions triggered by our world made of fear, pain and anger. A concept perfectly captured in the album art by the talented American artist Evi Numen.

      This emotional violence is translated into a roller-coaster collection of EBM songs constructed around powerful electronic sequences, punishing beats and brutal harsh vocals (as evidenced in tracks like "Turmoil", "Your God Has Left You Tonight", "No Entry No Exit", "Battle Mind", etc.) And to avoid making this dark album sound too claustrophobic and intricate, Larsen has added a little touch of experimentation through a couple of more intimate songs ("Invade My Body" or "The Bears Aren't Sleeping Tonight") and other slower, more moody tracks ("We Built the Walls", the poignant "Slow", the carrying "Dead Soil" and the grandiose yet dreamy "Abscido") which all together reinforce the richness of this chef d’oeuvre.
      "Mental Slavery" is bound to become a milestone in Leæther Strip’s prolific career, gathering in a way the best elements that have made the band's career a success to date, but also opening new directions and exploring new grounds, reminding us of how unpredictable our favorite Danish multi-talented artist can be.
