RU-486 are a band from Minnesota that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being a mixture of power electronics, harsh noise and noisecore and this is a review of their 2010 cassette "Iron Empire" which was released by No Visible Scars.
Noise effects range from mellow sounding noises to harsh noises as well as mixing in influences from noisecore and death industrial as well as a great amount of spoken word samples mixed in with a great amount of heavy distortion.
Song themes cover violent and dark themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs not either being too short or long in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from RU-486 and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this cassette. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Watchtower Troops" and "Conveyer Of Broken Dreams". RECOMMENDED BUY.
