Do you like EBM? Do you like the finest hour of EBM? Look no further. You have just been united with a fucking MASTERPIECE EBM record, one that will be hard to top.
Brooklynâ€™s Statiqbloom is the dark hallucinogenic brainchild of Fade Kainer, who is also the mastermind behind such bands/projects as Batillus, Theologian, Inswsarm and regular collaborator of Jarboe).
Drawing from the grittiness of early industrial and EBM like Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, Cabaret Voltaire, and the entire golden age of the Wax Trax catalog, Statiqbloom combines hard dance beats and haunting electronics with disorienting vocals to create a pulsing raw vision of music for today â€“ a new world order in sonic form where humanity and machine, material and immaterial, digital and organic have been forced together in a monstrous eruption of beauty and deformity.
Within this record youâ€™ll be faced by otherworldly and mesmerizing sonic sculpture thrown against a distant storm of pulsing dark matter, chaotic rhythms, beautifully and masterfully crafted soundscapes, and haunting rhythms. It doesnâ€™t matter if youâ€™re more into the more â€œdanceyâ€ or club-scene oriented perfectionism of artist like New Order, Burial, or Justice, into the cerebral and more abstract IDM of bands like Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin or Amon Tobin, or into the breakneck intensity of Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Venetian Snares or KMFDM â€“ Statiqbloom has it all and even goes beyond, into a realm of artificial musical intelligence that at times you will find hard to believe it is so great and grand.
While â€œSeparate Worldsâ€ might be the best upbeat EBM track Iâ€™ve heard since Skinny Puppy released â€œRodent,â€ other tracks on this gem like â€œVestige Lightsâ€, â€œShiveringâ€ and â€œBehind Galssâ€ (this last track is as grand and evocative as â€œWarlockâ€) are pure perfection â€“ pure body and mind collision that will make you become restless sin your seat and make your mind wander off into unthinkable places.
