"Darkwave meets Electro-Goth". Also described as "blatantly nay-saying pre-apocalyptic electro pop" and has been such on and off since it's inception in 2001.
Sometimes it's "self loathing drudgery"

Mostly its just weird and dark electro rock...

Track Name: Consumed by the Signal (album version)
Consumed by the Signal

All heads down, we worship our screens
All day and night, no reflection, no peace
In self absorption, review our machines
With no vision, no purpose, fill space in between

We let the inmates run the asylum
We let money supersede
This whole world is going to hell
It's worse than you'd believe

'Cause you don't know what you're doing
And you don't know who you want to be
You don't know where you're going
And you're more than happy to be led like sheep

So you like and you follow, subscribe to their plan
Everyday that goes by, their power expands
You're repeating their message, re-tweeting demands
so consumed by the signal, you can't see the threats

We let the inmates run the asylum
We let money supersede
This world's a complete shithole
It's worse than you'd believe

'Cause you don't know what you're doing
And you don't know who you want to be
You don't know where you're going
And you're more than happy to be led like sheep

What Future??

Wake up, arise from the static.
There's a world out there, a world in panic
There's a blind spot, reality in whole
There's a million different problems that we really need to solve
Why don't you....
Rise up, awake from the static.
There's a world out there, a world in panic
There's a blind spot, reality in whole
There's a million different problems that we really need to solve
Why don't you....
Wake up

Attack the Day

Own it, make it yours.
Own it, make it yours.
Own it, make it yours.

Let's crush all our enemies
And wreck all the boundaries
And push through like never before
Let's crush all our enemies
And wreck all the boundaries
And push through like never before

Crush, wreck, stomp, smash, break and tear, burn, fight and pound, reject
Crush, wreck, stomp, smash, break and tear, burn, fight and pound, reject
Our priorities, and boundaries, our enemies, conspiracies, longevity, serenity for us.
Our priorities, our enemies, responsibility, insecurity, longevity, serenity for us.

Let nothing stand in the way

Own it, make it yours, apply the right you've earned
Own it, make it yours, apply the right you've earned
Let's crush all our enemies
And wreck all the boundaries
And push through like never before
Let's crush all our enemies
And wreck all the boundaries
And push through like never before

Crush, wreck, stomp, swear, break and tear, burn, fight and pound, inject (we fell before)
Let's crush, wreck, stomp, smash, break and tear, burn, fight and pound, like never before
Like never before
Before

Let nothing stand in the way

Own it, make it yours, apply the right you've earned
Own it, make it yours, apply the right you've earned

Let nothing stand in the way

Track Name: Ringfinger featuring Violette Syn - a NIN cover
Ringfinger

Well, you've got me working so hard lately
Working my hands until they bleed
If I was twice the man I could be
I'd still be half of what you need

Still you lead me and I follow
Anything you ask you know I'll do
But this one act of consecration
Is what I ask of you

Ringfinger, promise carved in stone
Deeper than the sea
Ringfinger, sever flesh and bone
And offer it to me

Well, you just leave me nailed here
Hanging like Jesus on this cross
I'm just dying for your sins
And aiding to the cause

Ringfinger, promise carved in stone
Deeper than the sea
Ringfinger, sever flesh and bone
And offer it to me

Wrap my eyes in bandages
Confessions I see through
I get everything I want
When I get part of you

Ringfinger, promise carved in stone
Deeper than the sea
Ringfinger, sever flesh and bone
And offer it to me

Ringfinger, a promise carved in stone
Deeper than the sea
Ringfinger, Devil's flesh and bone
Do something for me
