Cyanotic

The soundtrack to a dystopian world view.

Part band, part machine, the Chicago-based angry robot outfit Cyanotic, has been producing their own hybrid of angry robot music since forming in 2002. Striking balance between synthetic order and frenzied chaos, the band’s 2017 release “Tech Noir” serves as a welcome updating of their loving homage to electronic music culture and classic cyberpunk tropes.

Adoration Destroyed

With one eyeliner-stained eye looking back over a black-clad shoulder, harkening to the dark electronic music of the past, yet seductively mixed with bleeding-edge production drawn from modern EDM, and other electronic genres.

This project is an outlet for the ravaged, the lost and fucked-up souls.

Raw, visceral chronicles encased in a slick dichotomy of infectious Bass Music and Dark….

FIRES

Thirteen years. The time between beginning and an ending, and the return to the familiar ground of first pages being turned.

This is the ethos behind FIRES, new project from Eric Sochocki (Cryogen Second, Becoming The Devourer), which sees a return to his dance roots. However, this return is not to familiar territory, as FIRES does not opt for political warnings entrenched in post-apocalyptic imagery, as seen in Cryogen Second, or towards the esoteric and ephemeral, like Becoming the Devourer. Instead, FIRES is a direct reach inward and expressed in pop melodies, electronic rock, and nods to the retro-futurism of Synthwave.

FIRES began in August of 2016 and the first single (Counting Walls) was released in October of 2016, and quickly began circulating throughout the US industrial scene. A second single (To Be All Alone) was released a few weeks after. In early 2017, the band signed to Metropolis Records to release FIRES’ debut album, Red Goes Grey, in September of the same year. This album can trace its musical lineage directly to industrial acts like Imperative Reaction, Aesthetic Perfection, and Alter Der Ruine, while taking pieces from modern Synthwave producers like Carpenter Brut, S U R V I V E, and Vogel.

Xentrifuge

From NJ-NYC’s Underground Music Scene comes Xentrifuge, a brutal assault of Harsh Industrial/Aggrotech, constructed by the collectively innovative minds of Chris X and Lisa Hellen.

Xentrifuge brings a groundbreaking blend of Industrial-based sound, fused with noise, and a touch of heavy guitar work.

Souless Affection

Souless Affection was created as a medium to vent lifetimes of abuse, rape, molestation, neglect, and torment at the hands of a bastard world.

Two of the original founding members of Souless Affection, TJ and Jesse, reunite for their first show together in over 8 years. This will be an extra special, high energy performance that you don’t want to miss!

Summer 2015 Noteworthy Gigs

There are a bunch of fantastic shows coming to the Twin Cities over the next few months. We like to keep you informed, so here are the details of a few that caught our eye and a little bit about why these are going to be killer events. We hope to see you there!

The Rope, Thunderbolt Pagoda, Claps, Gloss

June 10
7th St. Entry
8 pm / 18+ / $5
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets

Many of you already know The Rope, especially after their amazing performance at this year’s Goth Prom. For those of you who have yet to experience The Rope, they are a dark synth rock band influenced heavily by the post-punk sounds of the late 70s. They’re known around town for their engaging performances, passionate lyrics, and dark yet danceable music. This is a very strong, well architected lineup of Minneapolis talent. Rounding out the bill are Thunderbolt Pagoda (heavy, proggy, space-rock), Claps (minimal synth pop), and Gloss (dream pop, shoegaze). Their sounds are diverse, but complement each other well.

En Esch (Slick Idiot, ex-KMFDM), Go Fight (Jim Marcus, ex-Die Warzau), Ghostfeeder

June 23
Amsterdam
9 pm / 21+ / $12 adv / $15 door
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets

Wax Trax fans, do not miss this show! En Esch of KMFDM and Slick Idiot is touring in support of his brand new album, Spank. Check out this great review from Intravenous Magazine:

Songs such as ‘Give The People What They Want’, ‘Do Me’, ‘We Love To Hate’, ‘No Guts No Glory’, ‘Ich Bin Ein Berliner’, ‘Spaenk’ and ‘This Party Ain’t Over’ cover everything from dance-friendly electro-industrial, through to hard and heavy NDH. He even throws in a curve ball with the annoyingly addictive and demented ‘I Hop’. The album presents a full cross-section of En Esch’s strongest song-writing styles and some memorable collaborations with the likes of Guenter Schulz, Erica Dilanjian, MMTM.

En Esch brings with him Chicago’s Go Fight (electroscuzz featuring Jim Marcus of Die Warzau).

Go Fight were last here in 2012 and since then, they’ve released two full length albums and numerous singles. Their brand new sophomore release, Napalm Baby, was released in April and has been receiving rave reviews:

However, amongst all these different themes and motifs comes the awesome music that this band has managed to perfect in a short span of time. They describe themselves as “Electroscuzz”, which is pretty much a self-made genre. But, after giving a listen to this clear cut production, I can only describe that as a mixture of industrial, funk, electro, and a little bit of everything else in between the smaller lines. Expect a lot of upbeat experimentation and naughty nonsense that somehow manages to work very, very well.  (Brutal Resonance)

Freezepop, Dance Assault, The Electric Witch, Duck Duck Punch

July 18
Nether Bar at Mill City Nights
8:30 pm 18+ / $13 adv / $15 door (ticket link coming soon!)
Facebook Event
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

It’s been over four years since Freezepop traveled to the Twin Cities. We’re big fans of synth pop and are very much looking forward to having them back! Freezepop shows are always super high energy and full of geeky fun. Joining them are up and comers Dance Assault, who’s funky electronic pop is sure to get you moving,  The Electric Witch (retro sci-fi inspired synth pop), and Duck Duck Punch. KFAI’s DJ SLT will keep you entertained between bands.

KMFDM, Chant, Inertia

August 15
Mill City Nights
8 pm / 18+ / $22
Details / Facebook Event / Tickets
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

KMFDM need no introduction, so we’d like to spend a little time introducing you to the fantastic tour support – Chant and Inertia. Chant is a tribal-infused apocalyptic drum project that has developed a reputation for blistering stage performances while touring extensively with KMFDM, Lords of Acid, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, and Angelspit. London’s Inertia (electro-industrial-rock-dark pop, Metropolis Records) are touring in support of their brand new album, Existential, out this month. Make sure you arrive early to catch Chant and Inertia!

Haujobb, Dissociate, Echo Signal

August 24
Nether Bar at Mill City Nights
18+ / $15 adv / $20 door (ticket link and full details coming soon!)
Kilted Farmer Koncerts show

The consensus on Haujobb’s opening set at the Skinny Puppy / Front Line Assembly show in December was that it was way too short. Haujobb were the highlight of the evening for many, and we’re pleased to bring them back to Mill City Nights in the Nether Bar for a headlining performance. Locals Dissociate (IDM / noise) and Echo Signal (post punk) will kick things off. And after the show, be sure to head over to Hard Mondays at The Saloon for more post-concert fun!
