The Medullary Paralysis - We Don't Drink, We Don't Take Drugs, We Don't Have Sex, We Feel Compassion

We Don't Drink, We Don't Do Drugs, We Don't Have Sex, We Feel Compassion 3 track EP.

The Medullary Paralysis are an industrial glam outfit whom hail from Italy and claim their influences to include Marilyn Manson, Tears For Fears and Smashing Pumpkins, and this can be heard to be true especially the Marilyn Manson influence in the vocal department.

Musically the 3 tracks here have more in common with industrial/EBM artists than anything else but the Manson influence can also be heard in some of the guitar work.

Of the 3 tracks offered here I prefer "Fashion Slave" with it being the rockiest of the bunch, the others just don't quite do it for me.

I cant fault this EP, I just don't get it, maybe its my age, maybe I'm just not ready for this revolution to begin?
The EP is a grower, but I'm not sure it'll have any staying power on my CD player sorry.

The other songs included here are "Compassion On the Dance Floor" and "Heaven Forbid".

Fans of Killing Joke, Marilyn Manson, Prodigy and Plastic Toys may find this of interest but unfortunately not for me!

Rating 6/10
