Binary Order - Messages From the Deep - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out https://metal-digest.com/2023/08/18/binary-order-messages-from-the-deep/
What began as niche workshops worshipping the likes of Killing Joke, Kraftwerk and Depeche Mode in the 70’s and 80’s, by the 90’s had turned into spawling industrial estates. These bands hit hard with their thumping industrial sound with one such band being Binary Order who have delivered their latest album of proper old-school industrial with ‘Messages from the Deep’.
With an album clocking in at just over 53 minutes spread over nine tracks, ‘Messages from the Deep’ mixes big industrial riffage and beats with razor sharp performances. Through a clean production, Benjamin Blank delivers a vocal performance which is both primal and calculated switching between clean vocals, guttural barks and almost robotic deliveries which plays perfectly into the music. Through tracks such as ‘Sick’, ‘Towards the End’ and ‘A Good Death’, not only does ‘Messages from the Deep’ have all the appeal of Nine Inch Nails and early Marilyn Manson, but also Fear Factory and Static-X. Furthermore, there’s a cinematic soundtrack undertone here where any fan of the soundscapes used in the likes of ‘Blade Runner’, ‘Total Recall’ and ‘Dune’ will find what ‘Messages from the Deep’ delivers to be very entertaining.
As an album, ‘Messages from the Deep’ is very industrial and although it won’t appeal to everyone, fans of that 90’s industrial sound will love what Binary Order deliver here.
Release Date: 11/29/2022

“Dreams are messages from the deep” - Dune 2021
Released in Winter 2022 Messages From the Deep sees Binary Order deliver ten tracks of brutal industrial metal, sprawling cinematic electronics and atmospheric laced ambience. From the insanity of Violence, through to the pounding of Parasite and the overwhelming dread of My Own Mortality. Messages From the Deep is a collection of songs drenched in anxiety, isolation and anger. Birthed from a fear of the future while existing in a present that feels foreign and cold.
Heavily inspired both by the likes of cyberpunk and sci-fi (such as Dune, Akira, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Deus Ex, Judge Dredd etc) in its presentation, themes and aesthetic. Messages From the Deep is also a look at both the prevalent social and political unrest in modern society and the warning signs we are continuing to ignore. As we fall further down into this hell of own making, becoming ever more disconnected from ourselves and each other, we succumb to the unrelenting fear that mankind is too far along to stop these horrors that we have set in motion.
ABOUT BINARY ORDER:
Started in 2008 by London based solo musician Benjamin Blank as a way to combine his love for multiple genres. It wasn’t until the mid-2010s that Binary Order started to take on the form it does today. Fusing the intensity of metal, the atmosphere and melodies of synth and the soul of rock and acoustic is what is at the heart of Binary Order.
