INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

Debut EP “X2A” by Aevin released on 16th of February

The debut EP “X2A” by the Greek digital media artist Aevin released on 16th of February under the German label Raumklang Music Records (Dirk Geiger, Huron, Basementgrrr). The sound mastering was done Anatoly Tokee Grinberg of the Unguided Tactical Sounds Corp. The album’s concept is metamorphosis. The tracks work as a storytelling of one’s transformation from the past experiences to the present self.

Nostalgic piano motifs, and staccato beats punctuated by sonic interference reminisce over days gone by, while glitches throbbing in the cocoon of the skull clear away the cobwebs and the fog of sleep.

‘X2A’ transports the listener to powerful places of change—to the darkness and neon of the dancefloor temple and the secret room between the ears.

Aevins’ debut EP leaves the listener with the feeling that something of the old remains within the new, something tempered into the present, through the alchemy of the past. Brain-scrubbing beats, scanning across the auditory feld,  reawakening the senses.

The album features two exclusive remixes by Conjecture (Raumklang Music) and Totakeke (Tympanik Audio, HANDS label)
