onara
Out of Print (self-released)
Industrial rock trio - onara isn't afraid to whip out chunky guitar riffs within otherwise synth-dominated material, and that's cool. But the band is at its best when it lets its psychedelic freak flag fly, as in its acid-drenched club anthem of betrayal, "Never Ask What You Don't Want To Know," wherein singer Ron Ferraro sneers lines like: "I caught your friend Lisa looking at me/ I might just take her out and make her feel free." Overall, 'Out of Print', is a lustful collection of 11 tracks that aren't too electronic for the rock crowd, or too rock for the electronic crowd - instead, they're right on the money, with another highlight being "Fanatic Addict," an amusing and infectious ode to dance-crazy babes: "Don't know what you're on, girl, but I want some/ Keep movin' like that and the cops are gonna come." Somebody should let these guys loose in a major nightclub on the Strip.

A sort of treatise on the state of industrial rock, onara’s Out of Print might be one of the most manic CDs ever recorded......all while sharing little musical synchronicity....the cover model is moderately hot, and one can sort of imagine “Fanatic Addict” playing as a lap-dance anthem at a local strip club someday.
