There's not much difference between a playground bully, a corporate CEO and the self-absorbed figureheads of many of the world's current administrations. They'll all tell you that by surrendering your lunch money or tax dollars, they're working toward "your best interests." And we all realize these people are merely imposing a will of their own choosing. Nobody knows these constructs like Ogre and cEVIN Key, the braintrust behind Skinny Puppy, who, while entering their third decade working together, remain the world's most forward-thinking electronic/industrial-rock unit. Mythmaker, their 13th disc, is a harrowing song cycle framed in dark, intriguing atmospheres that explores the concept of control and the manipulation of culture that falsely enhances the lives of the duplicitous. It is to their credit—and longevity—that Skinny Puppy have been able to simultaneously cast light on societal ills and expand the sonic notions of their music with considerable aplomb.
Army Of The Universe
Sometime around the winter of 2008, on a dark stormy night in the gray city of Milan, Army of the Universe are born. From the mind and synthesizers of Techno/Trance producer Albert Vorne (aka Trebla) and from the powerful voice of Lord K (Lead singer of Kult of the Skull God).
The band today finalised by the distorted, weeping and power-driven guitars of Davil
AOU's takes inspiration from the experiments of the 80's electro-rock, fuelled with the futuristic re-interpratations of rocking 6 strings on top of twisted electronic landscapes and the collisons of sound of the end of the millennia.
The sound lays upon anaolg synths in a fusion with blade-like guitars, speeding around echoes of 80's metal, flirting with backgrounds of British school electronica, new wave and techno beats.
AOU joined our galaxyon a mission to explore the frontiers of post-rock and post-electronica
Cutting edge music born for the dance floor melts with epic power rock and blinks an eye to the warm feeling of live interpretations, a postmodern experience that completes the fusion of the two worlds
