How is it?
Who would have thought that William Shatner and dubstep would ever get together? Featured on the opening track, Shatner introduces Planet Earth Attack, filled with heavy bass drops, electro glitches and heavy metal influences. The album has a running industrial metal theme, which isn't odd considering Talon's background on various metal bands. Many tracks feature guest vocals from artists such as TheFlame12 and Lady Starlite. Standout tracks include "Night Air" and "Apocalypse". There is enough variety on Planet Earth Attack to keep you from getting bored with 17 tracks running at just over an hour and 15 minutes. For fans of dubstep, this is a definite pickup. Even if you are curious about the genre, Blackburner is a good place to start.
