Genghis Tron – Dream Weapon

Release Date: March 26, 2021

Label: Relapse Records

Dream Weapon is Genghis Tron’s first release in 11 years. Gone is the screaming, the blast beats and Nintendocore. Instead, we get sparse electronica post-rock. Traditionalists will be disappointed but this record represents an impressive progression. Pyrocene is sinister and pulsating industrial rock. A clear progression from earlier work. The title track is heavy and the closest thing to metal on the whole album. Still, Dream Weapon incorporates clean vocals with driving drums. This track is less chaotic than old material but pumps up the catchiness. Ritual Circle is less heavy and slow burning. Clocking in at 10-minutes, it’s full of hypnotic melodies.
