"Belgium's Twilight Ritual was/is the main project by Geert Coppens and Peter Bonne. During the early '80s they were involved in many other bands including Autumn and The Linear Movement (both recently re-released on Minimal Wave), but Twilight Ritual is by far the most inspired project. The spirit of the band lingers on beneath the work of Autumn through A Split Second. The work of Twilight Ritual is diverse, yet concise. Their pioneering album Rituals inspired other musicians and became an underground cult classic in the minimal synth genre. The Factory Scream is a compilation of varied works recorded during 1984 and 1986. After finishing the tracks for Rituals, they went on discovering new areas of expression. And it shows. "Visions of Steel" and "L'Uomo Moderno" are two international-sounding and wonderful analog-induced tracks, "Wired to the Machines" could have been a potential club hit, "Black Track" can stand next to the best Neon Judgement material and "She Told Me Lies" is a truly mesmerizing '80s synth-pop song. The Factory Scream has many different facets, and it often sounds like there is more than one band playing on this album. Artwork by Twilight Ritual. Remastered by A.P.. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
