A great split album with two of the wildest EBM acts on the scene, Statiqbloom and Zex Model. Brooklyn's Statiqbloom is the dark, hallucinogenic brainchild of Fade Kainer. Drawing from the grittiness of early industrial and EBM, Statiqbloom combines hard dance beats and haunting electronics with disorienting vocals to create a pulsing, raw vision of music for today. Kainer has also provided vocals and electronic soundscapes for industrial doom metal band Batillus, and, previously, industrial metal duo Inswarm. In addition, Kainer is a member of blackened synth band Theologian, has played synths and percussion on tour for Jarboe, and has done remixes for a variety of bands and artists, including Chris Connelly, Nachtmystium and Secrets Of The Moon. In 2013 Statiqbloom self-released the Mask Visions Poison EP. This split record with Zex Model features Soren Roi of Rosenkopf. The Zex Model tracks were recorded in late 2013-early 2014, introducing the ERA II of the project sound (ERA I was the LP and ERA 0 was the EP, both on Desire) -- moving from Skinny Puppy-worship to electro-industrial experiments with some pop touches. Benestrophe and early Mentallo & The Fixer could probably sound like this if they started out in the mid 2010's and recorded in the middle of nowhere in Russia. Additional influences come from a variety of sources: Japanese murdercore (GISM, Zouo, AT-Det, Mobs, Execute), On-U Sound label grim dubplate releases and (proto) black metal such as Sarcofago and Vulcano. Limited to 300 copies on solid red vinyl. 350 gram sleeve. Includes a printed inner-sleeve with lyrics and a download coupon.
