Wasteful Consumption Patterns

Soldier (Intolerance)



Wasteful Consumption Patterns is a vehicle for DJ Korpserape, an Akron native who supposedly finished recording Solider in 2000, right before he checked into an insane asylum. You might think the story is just a ploy to create some buzz, but after listening to the CD, you'll begin to believe the dude spent some time in the crazy house. Mixing frantic drum 'n' bass with distorted bits of industrial, Korpserape creates a sinister backdrop for his creepy, machinelike vocals. The lyrics are beyond dark, often centered on death, S&M, mind control, and a whole lotta blood. While some of the tunes are a bit too chaotic, WCP nails it on more focused cuts like "Temporary" and "Discord."
