While taxidermy is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of BLACK TAXI, when it comes to new music from these NYC natives I will gladly take whatever visuals they decide to throw my way.

Is that dubstep I hear in “Killing Grounds”, the first offering from Front Line Assembly’s upcoming ECHOGENETIC album? It kind of sounds like there is but with most everything FLA do, they make it work. Definitely a more electronic and dance-heavy vibe than 2010′s Improvised. Electronic.

I’m sure this list will change come December but for now I leave you with the following: 1. Ghost: Infestissamum / Skinny Puppy: Weapon These two albums are in a dead heat for me at the moment.
