  • If you dig blood curdling, pound for pounding of metallic clashes, bangs and eardrum ripping sounds (throw in some lyrical mayhem) you’ll enjoy this disc.

    Halo six re-introduces the then brand new sounds from 1992. An altogether new sound since the release of Pretty Hate Machine, this remix disc is the rebirth of it all. A few haloes short from a fall into the downward spiral.

    A breakdown of Broken remixes-track to track
    1. Gave Up- {at first view of the cd back, you’ll notice three song titles remain the same as the Broken ep} this starts off with industrial sounds and contains a line from the original. then the song picks up momentum from that point on. Using a special recording method, the lyrics in this Gave Up are the same from the song only sped up and piled upon each other, causing a jumble of lyrics being spat out in such a way that is catchy and awesome. The song carries with it the pounding of destruction and the beat of many drums.

    2. Wish-The Fixed version is made up of three different Wishes all in one tightly rolled track. Featuring a 3 minute instrumental introduction, featuring backwards drumming and sounds of total destruction. The second verse, which is the third or fourth minute starts with the actual song. More violent drum beats, reptitive explosions carry it through to the third verse. This verse is the song again only with an almost feeling of ‘emptiness’. Less bass, more treble seems to be route this verse takes. Continues on with the bashing and crashing of drums.

    3. Happiness In Slavery- Starts off with an awesome, continuous drum beat (sounds very much like a later released song, “Heresy”), and is accompanied by screaming (by late Bob Flanagan; star of the HIS video). By tracks’ midsection, a vibrating, bassy noise is made which really catches attention when the bass is cranked. The screaming slave continues through out.

    4. Throw This Away- is basically a remix of songs Last and Suck. The track starts off with a reoccuring bass, really dark yet mellow. Builds up to a crescendo of slashing pounds. The first few moments is accompanied by a whispering line from Suck, “I am so dirty…on the inside” more so over a line from Last which is repeated; “I want you to make me, I want you to take me, I want you to break me, and I want you to throw me away!”.
    The song changes direction severely with a pounding of drums and guitars. In the second half of the remix, the Last lines are heard more predominantly.

    5. Fist Fu++- a remix of Wish. Contains the backwards masking of the Wish drum line, a devilishly spooky voice speaking through out, mentioning something about a “Tissue corridor”. Along with the backwards drumming, there is a bass line that pushes it’s way through the mess. Sounds real satanical. There is a sound that makes ya think “Oh, is this why it’s called Fist Fudge…really original and creative. Amidst the crowding drums and bass and devil voice, the song breaks out with a peaceful (out of nowhere line from a show/movie) ‘I want to feel that way too’,'I bet you will someday.” but it’s cut off too quickly with a return of the music. A spine stretching, skull popping end finishes this one off.

    6. Screaming Slave-yes, the end all be all of Fixed. The ‘track’ you either LOVE or HATE. I love it. I think it’s a creative onslaught of idustrial/metal bending/automotive catastrophe music. Starts off with something that sounds like my old LTD, when it wouldn’t start properly. A few beats with audible music from the original. Twice, the music stops, once for an instant of peace, tranquility with birds chirping, then the next silence is the entire screaming slave edit piece with B. Flanagan, you can almost hear someone else speaking to him, either directing him or really torturing him. There is a sense of music with it all…..just buy this disc and find out…

    over all, in its brutal darkness and realm of goth sprouting electronicism, Fixed along with it’s twin, Broken…is all very much so creative, original and artsy in a way. When metal fights back. Very good music.
