>…”Children Of God” by Swans.

Hard to describe – not exactly metal, not exactly industrial, but quite possibly the worst possible combination of those two musical genres. And the singing – there have been great non-singers in popular music – Joe Strummer, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Marc Almond, John Lydon and Morrissey spring instantly to mind. None of them were technically brilliant vocalists, but they all brought something worthwhile to the table. Not so Michael Gira. Lyrics seem to be terribly clichéd.

An album to avoid, but if you take perverse pleasure in avoiding my advice (as do 99.999% of the world’s population), then you can find more information on Swans here

…although I really wouldn’t bother.
