I think anger is over-used. It seems any kid who has experienced a breakup at the age of 14 can sing a metal-core song about it nowadays. Maximum Sexy Pigeon (2013)

The Union Underground is an industrial metal (to a certain extent) band formed in the '90s. Their major label debut didn't come out till 2000, titled …An Education in Rebellion (yes, the three dots is correct). The album — although mainly dominating in the subgenres of hard rock, electronic rock, and second wave post-grunge — can be compared to the earlier works of other late '90s industrial metal outfits such as Static-X and Powerman 5000.

The eponymous opening track "Drivel" introduces the listener to the distorted and dubbed vocals of the preceding song. "Drivel" features an angry guitar line, small hints of electronic elements, and Bryan Scott's perfect vocal style. "Drivel" isn't the only song to contain those features, though.

Besides the eponymous track "…An Education in Rebellion", all of the songs have an angry guitar line, small hints of electronic elements, and Bryan Scott's perfect vocal style (as mentioned 3 lines above). Naturally, if a music album has songs that are similar in style through and through, they tend to get repetitive. Not in this case. Each song actually has a somewhat-catchy guitar riff that makes the track memorable. Scott's vocals also blend in quite well with the instruments, particularity the guitars.

A major downside is that the album is too short. Although clocking in at just above 30 minutes, …An Education in Rebellion delivers a well-needed punch to the industrial metal/electronic rock style. (Xenerki)
