Man the Mute is the solo project of Cesar Soto, a renowned guitarist for the influential industrial band Ministry. Now with full release Songs for Peace, Songs for War, Soto demonstrates his chops as a storyteller and frontman, while defaulting to major shredding in thick atmospheres. “Give Him Hell” is a high-octane, riff-heavy song that matches the subject matter of the revenge-driven narrative Soto decries. “Willow” is introspective, while “Blotter” adds heavy guitar riffs to dense production elements—a nod to producer Maor Appelbaum, who balances the industrial sounds with great sensibility. Man the Mute packs depth in Songs for Peace that demand a second listen to appreciate Soto’s artistry.
