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!

We’re extremely excited for this show! KANGA is flying in special just for us! She is an incredibly energetic live performer and a number of you have been asking us to bring her to Minneapolis. She has been making a lot of waves in the past year, including a recommendation from Gary Numan as well as performances at Terminus Festival and Cold Waves!

a place both wonderful and strange

The sound of a place both wonderful and strange is that of a heady paganistic fever dream that keeps the waking world slightly at bay, a warm and heavy hand across your eyes. It is the sound of sleep paralysis, a darkness shaking and ravaging your psyche with unease, mystery and wonder. However, it’s not just about what you can hear. Often, if you’re hearing it, it’s too late.

a place both wonderful and strange exists in a world hyper-influenced by the occult, David Lynch and Janet Jackson, damaged by witch house and pop culture in equal measures.

Birthed of night and fire, Brooklyn-based Russ Marshalek’s brain child of smeary electronics and sharpened emotions takes on its newest form, as an electronic trio of power (NOT “power electronics”). Augmenting the line-up in a Voltron-esque way are Shanda Woods, formerly of We Are The Wilderness and now solo under the guise of OKTI as a member of the Hathor Collective, and Laura Hajek, who also performs as indie-pop terrorist Edith Pop.

In 2016 a place both wonderful and strange released their second album, The Laura Palmer Deviations. “The Laura Palmer Deviations” is the soundtrack to their critically-acclaimed Lynch Foundation performance “Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer”, which recently played in Atlanta to mass praise. Their 3rd album, “What I Speak I Create”, is out in 2017 on Sony Music/The Orchard.

Combining to create a magick concoction of sounds, videos, DJ mixes and live performances that have bewitched the imagination in unique weird ways, a friend has described their style as “making music with teeth”. They have played extensively in New York City at music venues and art establishments up and down the east coast, notably capturing the interest of the David Lynch Foundation. Currently they are working on several film soundtrack collaborations and New Jack Witch, a surreal full-length concept album and short film (the title track from which was debuted on Mishka in November of 2014).

As a place both wonderful and strange’s musical identity whispers to a mystery befitting the name. The whispers grow louder until they are a scream meant to wake one from their fevered dream. Watch and listen, but don’t wake up.

Ego Likeness

Source: www.egolikeness.com

Ego Likeness was created in 1999 by artist Steven Archer, a DC native, and writer Donna Lynch in Baltimore, Maryland. Taking their name from Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune, the band began as an experimental/ dark trip hop project. Throughout the course of four full length albums and several EPs, Ego Likeness have explored numerous styles from darkwave to trip-hop to rock.

Ego Likeness signed with Metropolis Records in 2010 to release their fourth album, Breedless. The album showcases their dark electronic trip hop sensibilities overlaid with Donna’s passionately emotive vocals. While many may compare them to Curve and Collide, Ego Likeness continues to take their music to darker corners of the human psyche.

In addition to touring extensively with The Cruxshadows, Voltaire, Ayria, Angelspit, The Ludovico Technique, Ego Likeness has had the honor of sharing the stage with The Damned, Peter Murphy, Chris Connelly, Collide, Razed in Black, Bella Morte, Das Ich, Rasputina, Iris, Decoded Feedback, The Azoic, More Machine Than Man, In Strict Confidence, Combichrist, Stromkern, New Model Army, And One, Seabound, Attrition, Assemblage 23, Nitzer Ebb, Aesthetic Perfection, Terrorfakt, The Gothsicles, and many others.

Ego Likeness has performed at festivals throughout the US and in Europe, including Dragon*Con (Atlanta GA), Convergence 11 (San Diego CA), Dracula’s Ball (Philadelphia PA), Ring Con (Fulda, Germany), Balticon (Baltimore MD), Black Sun Festival I (New Haven CT), Freaks United (DC), Eccentrik Festival (Raleigh NC), Reverence (Madison WI), Wicked Faire (Somerset NJ), WTII Mini-Fest (Chicago IL), several Electronic Saviors Benefit shows, and others.

Stoneburner

Source: www.stoneburnerband.com

Stoneburner is the solo project from Steven Archer that combines tribal fusion electronic dance music with experimental sounds. Steven Archer is a multifaceted musician, artist, and writer.  He is best known for his work with the electronic rock band Ego Likeness (Metropolis Records) as well has is abstract electronica project ::Hopeful Machines::.  His music has been used in several feature sound tracks including the recent award winning documentary Small Small Thing. He has also been commissioned to score a video for NASA on the upcoming OSIRIS-REx mission.

Stoneburner is his vision of the music and philosophy of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” book series. It fuses traditional organic instruments and vocals from all over the world with modern electronic dance music in an attempt to tap into the books technological-tribal aesthetic. His hope is that the project will do justice to the novel’s vision of Arrakis and it’s warrior inhabitants.

Live shows are intense and fluid, consisting of multimedia video projections and often incorporate tribal fusion belly dance troupes.

He has written and illustrated several books available on Amazon.com as well as freelance art for several publishers including Weird Tales magazine. His artwork and jewelry can be purchased from the Ego Likeness etsy store.

More information can be found on the Ego Likeness website or on the Ego Likeness Wikipedia page.
