The Seattle-based industrial metal duo return with a glitchy, punky new song heavy on dystopian angst.
Watch two very non-cyberpunk gentlemen create some very cyberpunk music live using only 70's-era tech.
The new song is from the band's upcoming album Aggression Continuum which is scheduled to be released on June 18th.
"Atomic: Ad Initivm" is heavy on the dark synth and post-punk with a delightfully dark video that recalls imagery from Ghost in the Shell, Akira, and others.
The melancholy track discusses the use of facial recognition technology, government suppression, the gamification of spying, and cyberterrorism. You know, distant-future stuff.
The influence of Blade Runner on electronic music, and all music really, cannot be overstated. Mixmag presents 20 electronic artists who sample it in their tracks.
Originally supposed to be released alongside Mezzanine, the remix album was shelved until now.
It's powerfully catchy and I appreciate it.
The Russian electronic duo IC3PEAK aren't interested in holding back on the intensity in their new video, "This World is Sick"
